On the back of two away matches and ahead of another three on the road we have a game at home tomorrow as we host Montrose in League One.
Our previous meeting was back in August at Links Park, our first away game in the league which ended goal-less.
The visitors currently sit third in the table on 27 points, the same number as second placed Falkirk who have a better goal-difference. Eight points better off than ourselves.
Looking ahead to the game tomorrow, Manager Wullie Gibson said “We go into the Montrose game on the back of a very poor result away at Alloa.
We controlled the first half and were by far the better team and should’ve been more in front before they pulled level just before the break but the second half and the way we collapsed after they scored the second goal was embarrassing.
We’ve shown we’re capable of good performances in some games but we need to do that more regularly if we want to be a good team. We need to be stronger both physically and mentally than we were in the second half if we want to improve.
This weekend’s opponents are a good side who have been in the play-offs for the past few season. They are a well drilled part time team who are in good form and will have confidence and we need to be far better than we were in the last half hour at Alloa.
I felt the players not only let themselves down last week but also the travelling support so we definitely owe them a victory, no matter how that comes”.

Car parking will be available to all spectators within the Queen of the South Arena car park. It is suggested that buses/minibuses drop off their passengers in Terregles St/King Street and thereafter park on College Mains road just off the roundabout with the A76 on the town bypass (adjacent to Curry’s/PC World, as the other side at Aldi is the access road to the ambulance depot and is extremely busy). Pick up should be the same location as drop off. Supporters’ buses including minibuses will not be allowed to park in the Arena car park.
There are a number of roadworks around town and the surrounding areas so supporters should allow extra time and check the Traffic Scotland website at http://trafficscotland.org/index.aspx for confirmation of any delays.
The catering outlets within the supporter’s areas of the ground will also be open for use. And the bar under the Alpha Solway stand will be open to both sets of supporters’ pre-match.
For supporters safety QOS have adopted a robust and thorough search policy for spectators entering the ground to ensure that ground rules and regulations are strictly adhered to, especially in relation to pyrotechnic devices and controlled containers. We would like to remind supporters that letting off smoke devices is a criminal offence, and anyone found doing so will be referred to Police Scotland which may result in a custodial sentence. Not only is it against the law, but it is also extremely dangerous and a health hazard to other spectators. All bags will be searched and spectators presenting themselves for entry may also be subject to search. Spectators who refuse to be searched by stewards will be denied entry to the ground.
Palmerston Park is a non-smoking venue, this includes e cigarettes and other such devices. Stewards are empowered to eject spectators who disobey these rules. No persons will be admitted to the ground who are deemed to be under the influence of alcohol.
The club shop located in the Arena will be open until kick off where you can purchase our club merchandise. Including half-time draw tickets and match day programmes.
The Community Fridge team continue to look for donations of food, toiletries, cleaning products and books. Any donations can be handed in at the Arena or the Press Office tomorrow or into the office during the week. Collection buckets will also be available around the stadium tomorrow for anyone wishing to make cash donations for the volunteers to purchase goods for the Hub to help people within the Community.
Tomorrow’s match kicks off at 3 pm.
