Queens toil at Perth

Saints recorded a comfortable win over a lack lustre Queens side who are now without a win in 5 games. It was an unhappy afternoon for Queens skipper Jim Thomson who was making his 500th appearance for the club. Deuchar caused Queens problems throughout and could have scored a hatful but will have the Doonhamer's goalkeeper to thank for the opening goal on 15 minutes. MacDonald fumbled a ball at the far post and the big on loan striker bundled the ball into the net.

Queens although having a fair share of the ball created very little and Saints should have been further ahead by the interval with Deuchar being the biggest sinner. They alsmost paid the price when O'Connor latched on to a poor Stanic backpass, rounded the Perth keeper but somehow screwed the ball past the post.

Half-Time: Saints 1 Queens 0

Saints toiled a bit at the start of the second-half as Queens tried hard to get back in the game to no avail. Saints gradually gained control and put the visitors defence through the mill and were rewarded on 66 minutes when Jackson scored with a powerful header from a Quinn cross.

There was no way back for the visitors and Saints finished comfortable winners. Another disappointing display by Queens and manager Chisolm will be under tremendous pressure to turn things around against Livingston next Saturday.
