    League Match 9: Doonhamers vs. Pars

    Queens entertain Pars this weekend after a long sabbatical from Palmerston to complete the first quarter but can Queens end with 14 points?

    Stephen Finnie is the referee for this match.

    Magic Johnstone made it quite clear in the press that promotion is his number one priority as with 5 players missing on international duty last week he could have had their IRNBru cup tie postponed but didn't bother so with his Pars side back at full strength this will be a difficult game for Queens.

    Sums up how much bigger the Pars are than us with these international's missing. However , we are not a bad side if tinkerman selects a balanced team and tells them to go on the attack. Looking forward to it and I think this will be played like a cup tie with a good atmosphere.

    As long as Queens don't lose a goal like the Pars last visit to Palmerston.

    Dunfermline will probably bring down a good support tomorrow despite losing their last two matches . They like to attack so our defence is no doubt in for a torrid time.
    Any word on Derek Lyle ? Was he rested last weekend or did he sit out with an injury ?

    Should be over the 2,000 mark for this one if it doesnay rain. We seem to struggle to beat teams from the top half of the league though!

    I don't know why Lyle is missing mate . Looking forward to the game. Let's get behind the South !

    Great to have a home match again to finish the first quarter and its good to hear that Lyle is back in the squad as he is usually good to score against Dunfermline.

    Over the 90 minutes I would say that Queens were the best of two poor teams but rarely looked liked scoring.If you don't score you cannot win,so a draw seems alright.

    dykes just aint going to cut it for me ,yes he wins his fair share in the air but there aimless ,and jakobs is all busy in the central mid but with no technique nothing more than a break up player for me ,we need sum class in there and rankin well he should be doing far better than what im seeing from him ,not penitrating enough cant have 2 sitters in the centre of the park ,we need a cutting edge in there ,someone who gets the head down and goes at players ,i cant see where the goals are going to come from apart from dobbie and lyles contribution this season ,but as wee see if there both off it a bit then we struggle .

    I thought Kerr was Man of the Match by a long way.

    Have to say I disagree with the remarks on here.

    I thought both teams had a real go on Saturday and on another day we could have had a few goals from both sides.

    Queens definitely more than edged the match, - I would say by 55 to 45 % - but in the last 10 minutes it would have been an absolute travesty if either team had won, - as both sides put in a hell of an effort.

    I have only two gripes: firstly the completely unnecessary booking for hauling down the Dunfermline player wide on the touchline; - and secondly, Dobbie (in particular) over-playing in front of goal.

    There was one clear cut opportunity when Dobbs took a touch and tried to turn his man, - when he should just have taken a strike on goal.

    That's just about every home match this season that Queens could and should have been out of sight in the first half, - but they tend to over pass in the final third.

    Don't get me wrong, - I love to see one touch pass and move football, - but within 20 yards of goal that one touch should be a smack at the target, not a pussy footing piss take allowing the defence to block.

    So may I propose that the strikers spend a little extra time literally shooting on goal during training rather than trying that lovely, cute supplementary pass, which looks great, - but doesn't translate into points on the board?

    Trainers may argue that touch and possession is all important in training games, - but I'd rather see the ball blasted out of the park every two minutes than pretty passing in front of goal.

    If players are not encouraged to shoot in training, - then they wont be able to when it comes to the real thing, - and I'm convinced that those small sided, one touch practice games are to blame for our lack of goals.
