Queens Win Ugly At The Cleyhole

Last updated : 07 October 2012 By Queens MAD

QUEENS secured derby bragging rights as a goal in each half saw the table-toppers see off the league’s bottom side.

The unfortunate home side even missed a penalty to sum up their miserable day.

But Blues boss Keith Knox said: “I didn’t think there was a great deal of difference between them at the top of the league and us on the performance today.”

After four minutes ref Barry Cook spotted Mark Durnan pulling Frank McKeown’s shirt but Chris Aitken blazed his penalty over.

Queens went ahead when Gavin Reilly bundled home Derek Young’s cross.

Queens continued to dominate a stuffy Stranraer side but despite several chances failed to increase their lead.

The Doonhamers continued to miss several openings until  Nicky Clark robbed McKeown late on before firing home from inside the box.

Queens player-boss Allan Johnston said: “We played really well in parts, especially after we scored our first.”

Queens can now move on with confidence to Sunday's Ramsden Semi-Final with Arbroath at Palmy.
