    Kevin Graham is the appointed referee at Links Park on Saturday.

    Good opportunity to get into the last 8 here. Montrose will have a right go but we surely have too much firepower for them. I would stick with Leighfield in goals as he has played the Irn Bru games so far.

    I agree keeping Leighfield in goals to give him experience at this level. Hopefully Dobbie will hit the goal trail, not scoring since his hat-trick at Falkirk.

    Still only 3 league goals to add to his 6 cup goals so far.

    The player who really owes the fans a half - decent performance is our Aussie striker (?) Lyndon Dykes and what
    better day than tomorrow on his 22nd birthday - that is if selected after a very poor season all round and only 5 goals in 50 plus appearances since his return to Dumfries.

    I would be surprised if he would even get on as a sub tomorrow to be honest but you just never know.

    Another long trip but since it is a new ground I am already looking forward to leave and fully expect to win but it won`t be that easy as Montrose have started well this season.
    Hope Dobbie and the team has there scoring boots on today.

    Should be a more difficult game than the one against Berwick who had 5 or 6 players missing that day. Montrose have some vastly experienced guys in their squad such as Chris Templeman and ex - Arabs captain Sean Dillon while one Palmy connection is their goalkeeper coach is none other than Jim Butter allegedly one of the Doonhamers most expensive signings ever - Jim played 30 games in 1995 - 1996.

    Templeman has been a steady striker over the years with a few good clubs in the lower leagues.

    I attended many away games in season 1995-96 and remember watching Butters. I recall one midweek game at East Fife's former ground in Methil.

    Two consecutive corners to Queens then Montrose score. The right back Masson scores from a cut back in 23 minutes

    Dobbie scores in 87 minutes to stop his goal drought with his 7th cup and 10th goal of the season.

    Two goals in the 2nd period of extra time see Queens into the Quarter Finals on 11th/12th November. Dykes 113 and Dobbie 120....

    Quick early video from Lewis Donald. Dobbie's Double is captured.

    Some comments on Social Media suggest that Queens were s h i t e and lucky however careful study of the stats put the Doonahmers miles ahead of Montrose with the home keeper man of the match. Queens survived the potential banana skin and came out triumphant.
    This is good enough for me and I’ve watched football long enough to not expect too much Champions League standards at our level. We can expect a blood and thunder encounter with Pars next week where more important matters are at stake.

    In passing what a piss poor turnout by the home support !

    Well done ABERTZ - you are riduculed at times on here by the usual suspects but you have taken the time to put up a video of Queens for those who didn’t make it to Montrose.

    We weren’t ****e and it took us a long time to warm up but we’re the better team by a distance. Same old problem of the killer ball too often missing at the end of decent moves. Great move between Faddy and Dobbie would have been goal of the season if it had gone in. Glad to hear their keeper won MoM, he played well.

    Good post pal and I fully concur. Why do Queens put us through the wringer like that ? My heart was racing after they scored and was convinced we were going out.

    Much of what you say is correct, Admin. Queens dominated possession and Fleming was, indeed, man of the match with several excellent saves but let us put this in perspective. This was a poor, full-time Championship team against a plucky, part-time Second Division team and it was only when they ran out of steam that we clawed our way back into the game. Do not be fooled by the score. We came within three minutes of going out and within the width of the bar from going 1-2 down in extra time. The two best players on the park were Fleming, Montroses's goalkeeper, and Sean Dillon who was head and shoulders better than anybody we have in defence. We should get down on our knees every night and thank God for Stephen Dobbie. Despite a relatively quiet game he still managed two goals and kept us in it during the ninety minutes. Despite all our possession, this was a game of huff and puff, kick and rush. Our mid-field was as creative as an extinct dodo. I agree that we should not expect Champions' League standards from a Championship team but we should expect, nay demand, better than the rubbish we saw today.
    Finally, I acknowledge that it was not a big attendance but I wonder how it compares on a pro rata basis with attendances at Palmerston.
