Preview Queen of the South

Friday, 29th Apr 2022

cinch Championship (home) v Queen of the South, Friday 29th April 2022, kick off 7.45pm

The last fixture of the Championship season and it’s ninth placed Dunfermline versus tenth placed Queen of the South. While the visitors had the seal placed on their relegation last Saturday, the home side can escape the Championship play offs if they can better Ayr United’s result at home to Partick Thistle. Manager John Hughes says "We`re going into a game on Friday where we know what`s at stake, we have to take care of business.

"I send all my commiserations to Queen of the South, every time we`ve played them, they`ve been a fantastic opponent, and we`re just hoping that on Friday, we can win the points, and the results go for us elsewhere.”

Dunfermline 3-3 Queen of the South
Sat, 11th Dec 2021

Queens took an early lead in third minute when Lee Connelly broke and played Josh Todd into the left side of the Dunfermline penalty box and from the byeline he cut back for Alex COOPER to drill home 0-1

On 20 minutes Macdonald’s bravery won a free kick on the edge of the box. Kai KENNEDY curled the ball around the five man wall and found the net in off the right goalpost, his first and only Dunfermline goal made it 1-1.

The second half started the same way as the first with the home side losing a goal within three minutes. A weak pass back set up Cameron to break down the left channel and slip the ball right to Lee CONNELLY whose shot from 20 yards out flew into the Pars net. 1-2

Kennedy was brought down by Nditi 27 yards out as the on loan Ranger made an attempt to break through what was becoming an increasingly solid Queens team. From the 54th minute free kick Kennedy picked out Mark CONNOLLY in front of goal and his header marked his one and only goal for Dunfermline. 2-2

Queens took the lead for a third time when Johnston sent a 65th minute corner in from the left and CAMERON rose above everyone to head in from five yards out. 2-3

Two minutes from time Kennedy’s corner from the left was glanced in by Lewis McCANN for a well received equaliser.
