    Firstly, let's get it out of our heads that the game is in the bag cos it isn't. We seen the fragility of our back line at times last night and the next goal to borrow a cliche is all so important. Rovers have quality up front who dont normally miss given the opportunities like that . If Raith get it there will be panic stations galore amongst our team . Queens need to set off on the front foot like we did against Montrose and get that crucial goal that would mean a 4-1 lead. Same team again , let's go straight for the throat and hunt them down.

    At 3-0 we looked to be cruising and 4-0 would have finished it, - but that goal has brought a meaningfulness to the tie which will bring a lot of fans down from Kirkcaldy.

    The game is by no means over, but Raith have to chase the tie which will leave holes for Queens to exploit.

    I'd like to see us being patient and then have Dykes, Todd, Murray and perhaps Stirling rip the Raith defence open leaving Dobbie to pick off the scraps.

    Let's get into Palmerston in numbers this Saturday and roar the lads over the finishing line as well. Been some good attendances recently so more of the same thanks.

    This is far from down and dusted if Raith get an early goal it will make things both interesting and nervy. Need a decent home support to cheer the boys on once again and recently they have not let the club down so it is just one more ask for this season.

    A disaster can happen but we will be all guns blazing and don't have to worry about saving players for another game.

    We'll definitely score at least one goal so that would leave Raith needing 3 goals just to get level. Doable but won't happen.

    It's all about having the correct attitude for this game and ensuring that the players are fully focussed but we are talking about Queens so it would not be a great surprise if there are moments where we are uncomfortable with Raith having the upper hand. The crowd need to be patient as we have better players especially in attack and if we do score, which I fully expect, then the tie will surely be beyond the League 1 side.

    Firstly feel a great weight off shoulders with us completed the play off games successfully. Secondly we must try to get the outstanding talent Murray signed up. His performance's on live TV will have been noted and he could easily leave Palmerston.

    Lighten up scrooge. You are making us depressed. Johnson has came in at short notice and kept us up . Personally delighted with that.

    What should we have done,? Gone in there all guns blazing and created a open game ?

    We might have scored 3 the other night but we conceded 1 and they had other chances.
    How many chances did they have today ? Pretty much none. Game plan worked simple as that even if it wasn't pleasing on the eye.

    Nothing much happened in the first half, Raith having a couple of chances early doors. We opened up around the 35 minute mark and were unlucky with a few efforts up to the interval. Pretty much dominated the second half and goodness knows how their goal was not breached. Some of the wide play from Connor Murray reminded me of Jimmy Robertson at his very best ( opposite wing) and I cant give him higher credit than that .

    Ok guys, we did it. Todays game was horrible though. We could not beat a third rate team from a division below at home. FACT. Crowd turns out again and was treated to what appeared to be a Naismith excersise in containing the opposistion. It worked in that aspect. But I for one was expecting a far more positive attacking approach from the team regarding the game. Mon The South

    We played some tremendous football in the second half. Not great first half admittantly.

    I thought that some of the football we played in that second half was excellent and we could have had a bagful going by the number of chances we created. Their keeper was exceptional but it would appear that there are some out there who are only happy when having a moan. I agree that the presentation for staying up is somewhat embarrassing but it was organised by the league sponsors so what was the club to do?

    They had nothing to lose. Containing them was the right thing to do.
    We were wasting time taking slow throw in's and goal kicks etc right from the off. It was all in the script and you cant criticise that as top priority was just to get the result.

    We should have really won it 3 nil if it wasnt for some top quality goal keeping and there iirc number 4 ? Lad with the blonde mop. Martin didn't have much to do.

    Their two centre backs, Davidson and Benedictus plus their keeper were all excellent
