Match Preview v Morton (home)

Our second round of fixtures get underway tomorrow as we welcome Morton to Palmerston.

The first meeting of the two sides back in August resulted in a 3 -2 win, our first league victory of the season. Ally Roy opened the scoring midway through the first half before former Queens midfielder Kyle Jacobs levelled on the half hour mark. Jacobs scored at the wrong end to restore our lead and Ruben Soares Junior extended the advantage before Morton pulled one back with seven minutes remaining after Sol Brynn let the ball slip from his hands when challenged by Alan Lithgow.

As things stand, we are 7th in the table on 9 points while Morton sit 9th with three points less.

Looking ahead to the game, Manager Allan Johnston said “To come away from Ayr last week without anything is disappointing. I felt we were the better team and with the effort the players put into the game the least they deserved was a draw.

It’s fine margins in football, especially In the Championship so we need to work on finishing teams off when we are on top.

Last weekend rounded off the first quarter. We sit on 9 points but on reflection we could well have had more. Our performances have been decent, and we haven’t been far away. We should’ve taken something from all our games and could probably be at least another five points better off. We know there is stuff to work on but overall, I can’t be too disappointed with the players. We are getting stronger and I think we will keep improving.

a big week ahead for us starting with Morton at home. going to be a hard game; they will be fighting for their lives as well. It would be nice to get the three points from that to set us up for trips to Hamilton and Kilmarnock our other games in the space of seven days”.
