Don't let the scoreline fool anyone, today's contest was by no means a drab scoreless draw, far from it, the game was full of incident and Queens must feel the more aggrieved of the two for not returning a victory.

The game started quietly, Queens in their new 3-5-2 formation once again with no personnel changes on the pitch. The first ten minutes or so were reasonably even, both teams getting to know new opponents. Then suddenly Queens sprang into action, Sandy Hodge breaks through and feeds Peter Weatherson, his turn and shot is deflected away and the Doonhamers have a corner.
Paddy Atkinson sends in a cross in the second half.
From the corner the ball falls to Jon Sunderland on the edge of the box, the midfielder picks a spot and sends a curling effort goalward only to see it crash down off the woodwork, it fell to Bryan Caldwell who sent in a drive which was very well saved low to his right by 'keeper Chris Reid.

Queens were displaying some fine flowing football, one move in particular saw Andy martin set off a move between Weir and Hodge which ended with Sandy being upended on the touchline just outside the box.

Dean Muir then produced a glorious crossfield ball to the feet of Mark Weir, Weiry took it in his stride beat two defenders, despite being obstructed and sent a glorious effort toward goal only to see it rebound off the post.

The Bino's came more into the game for the remainder of the half, most notably when Craig Feroz had a good run and shot skim the top of the crossbar just before half time. The half ended with Albion on the offensive and winning their third corner in a row as the half time whistle sounded.

No changes to either formation or personnel were made at half time, the Binos pressed forward but Queens never really looked threatened, former Stranraer player McAuley being booked ten minutes into the half for a full length dive in a no contact Paddy Atkinson challenge, fortunately the referee was right on hand.

With fifteen minutes of the half gone Peter Weatherson stepped up to take a free kick ten yards outside the box, the young striker hit a superb low and hard effort that the 'keeper could only parry away, unfortunately no one was on hand to capitalise on the loose ball.
Another stunning display today from Peter Weatherson.
David Mathieson was then called upon to make a solid save when a free kick was conceded by Andy Aitken on the edge of the box at the Terregles Street end.

Then perhaps Queens best chance of the game when Dean Muir and Bryan Caldwell combined well down the right in a move that saw Caldwell hit the bye line and send the ball across the six yard box, unfortunately it caught Mark Weir wrong footed and the chance was lost.

The match was still full of incident with a few minor niggles in the middle of the pitch and chances almost being made at either end. Unfortunately for Queens though there was to be no wining goal and the side had to accept a share of the spoils. They must be happy that they more than matched their much fancied opponents and really should have ended the day with a full complement of three points, there wont be too many teams who escape with any points from Palmerston this season.
