Queen of the South’s Season So Far

Queen of the South’s season started by hosting Premiership Motherwell in the Betfred Cup where they lost 3-0 before hosting neighbours Annan Athletic. The League Two side did well to earn a 3-3 draw but The Doonhamers won the bonus point in the penalty shoot out.

A 4-1 win away at Dumbarton gave QOS a chance to qualify as one of the best runners-up but in the final match against fellow Championship side Morton, exited the competition when they lost the bonus point after coming back from 3-1 down at Cappielow to draw 3-3. 

Queens’ league campaign started with a 0-0 draw at newly promoted Arbroath and earned another point a week later in a 1-1 draw at home with Dunfermline.

Two 1-0 defeats followed to Ayr and Alloa but they got their first Championship win in the next game with a 1-0 win over Morton at Palmerston.

In the Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup, Queens went out after a 3-2 defeat away to Clyde and lost 2-0 at Inverness in the league the following week before the 1-1 draw with Dundee in front of the BBC Scotland cameras.

Queens followed that draw up win a 1-0 win over Partick in Glasgow and then an impressive 4-0 win over Dundee United in Dumfries.

After drawing with Alloa and then losing to Inverness and Dunfermline, Queens defeated 2nd placed Ayr 3-1 at home.

Dundee United then got revenge with a 3-0 win at Tannadice before a disappointing Scottish Cup exit at the hands of Queens park last weekend.
