Match Report

Promotion chasing Airdrie was the destination for our final away game of the season and with Jack Brydon and Stephen Hendrie both suspended after red cards last weekend, Manager Marvin Bartley recalled Ciaran McKenna to the defence and brought Harry Cochrane back into the side. They were two of four changes made by the Gaffer, in the other two Gordon Botterill made his second start for the club with Kevin Dabrowski dropping to the bench and Lewis Gibson came in for Lee Connelly.

With little goal-mouth action in the opening ten minutes, Queens started to settle and in their first attack, Cammy Logan made a good run and showed some skill to get forward. As the ball came back to Iain Wilson his pass found Cochrane on the wing, his cross come shot wasn’t to far away but was just too high of the junction of the crossbar and post.

Two minutes later as the home side won a corner, Justin Devenny blasted over. With the game flowing from end to end, Ruari Paton did well to make space as he raced forward but his right foot shot was well saved by former Queens keeper Josh Rae.

The keeper was back in action within minutes this time to block from Josh Todd inside the six-yard box. Queens were in control of the game but as Euan Deveney barged Logan over, he crossed from the left for Devenny, but he headed over.

The visitors pressure paid off after nineteen minutes when Cochrane finished a good move. Queens passed the ball up the park and as young Gibbo played a superb cross to the back post, Harry who was playing a more forward role met it perfectly to head past Rae to give Queens the lead.

Two minutes later, Kieran McKechnie burst through but his shot from the edge of the box was deflected for a corner. But just sixty seconds later, Queens did double their advantage, this time Gibson’s corner found Euan East at the near side and as he kept his right foot shot low it came off the base of the post to beat the goalie.

Trailing the home side looked for a way back into the game but defensively Queens were strong and as Logan limited the chance for them to get the ball into the box, they were forced to play it back out to Charlie Telfer who cleared the crossbar.

With four minutes of the first half remaining, the home side claimed for a penalty for handball against Logan, it wasn’t given and as Queens made the break, Paton did well to win the ball just in front of the dugouts to set up Gibson, but the youngster fired over.




Within ninety seconds of the restart Queens forced a string of corners. Paton won the first as his shot was tipped over the bar by Rae. Callum Fordyce headed away Gibson’s effort for a second while McKenna’s header from a third was wide.

McKechnie headed another wide before the home side started to push forward again and McKenna cleared before substitute Dean McMaster missed.

Midway through the second half, Airdrie did pull one back through fellow sub-Salim Kouider-Aissa who was left in space to fire pass Botterill.

Queens kept going and Fordyce cleared from Connelly before Botterill kept Queens ahead with a save from Devenny and then again blocked another chance before Paton secured the win with a fine free kick.

Connelly was brought down at the edge of the box and the Irishman stepped up to find the top corner via the underside of the bar.
