    Queens v Morton : 23rd October

    Yet another massive game for Queens tomorrow afternoon. Despite some encouraging performances losing 6 from the first 9 league games is a poor return so far.

    Hopefully Ally Roy will start in place of Ruben & let’s get Wullie back in defence in place of Johnston along with Todd back in midfield.

    Nice wee interview with Sir Stephen Dobbie in tomorrow’s match day programme.

    Dumfries Courier says goal hero Connelly is a doubt with a hamstring injury while Chima is out for another two months - poor lad has had a disastrous start to his Palmerston career.

    Connolly is fit hope the manager drops his son & puts Capt Wullie back to RWB brings in Todd, and has connolly just behind Roy & Cameron upfront.

    Extremely difficult to second guess the tinkerman but just hope he takes an adventurous approach against Morton rather than setting up to counterac their supposed strengths. He brave AJ from the start. Mon the South.

    To sum up today well it was a typical AJ day although unusually he started with the same line-up as last week..Queens were the better side for the first half despite starting slowly but should have been well ahead by half time but equally were unfortunate not to have conceded on half time. Second half the ineffective Cameron should have been the first to come off for either Roy or Latin to inject some paces alongside Junior but instead the manager replaced Cooper with Liddle and changed the formation bringing the struggling Gibson to left back from midfield. Eventually Johnston replaced Cameron with Roy with about 15 minutes to go which injected much needed place into the attack before eventual bringing Paton on for the final minutes. The fans were constantly crying out for these changes but our inept.manager refused to make them. I fear that regardless of the talented squad assembled by the South this season we have a manager incapable of getting the best from this group of players

    Struggling to see Junior or Cameron scoring many goals between them to take us up the league to be honest. Lots of nice passing movements but no end product once again.

    Queens should have been out of sight in the first half, as we should have been against Ayr. We are sadly paying for a mix of bad luck and a lack of clinical finishing, and we desperately need to be more ruthless in the first period.

    The second half was a non event yesterday, and we could have still been playing until midnight with no chance of scoring.

    It's easy to be too critical of AJ, - but freshning up things much earlier, - allows the newly introduced players an opportunity to make an impact.

    Hopefully our luck will change, - but the manager must be brave enough to try new tactics if after an hour there's no breakthrough.
