First Team Debuts

Milestones

A poor performance by the home side and a well deserved win for Queens. Queens had a real chance in 7 minutes when Bryce pounced on a Richard Hastings header but with only Jim Calder to beat he hit it weakly. In 13 minutes Caley Thistle lost a bad goal. Mark McCulloch went for a high ball and headed it over Calder as he came out it landed at the feet of Bryce and he tapped home. In 32 minutes McCulloch stormed forward and met a Vetle Andersen blocked effort but he hit it past the post. Three minutes later Queens had another chance but Calder did well to save at the feet of Deane Payne. Calder did the same as the half drew to a close when Townsley was well placed in the area. Seven minutes into the second half there was a bizarre incident when Sandy Robertson was brought down in the Queens area and he caught the ball expecting a penalty to be given the referee waved play on! Another rare home effort came from a goal mouth scramble in 57 minutes when only the efforts of Mathieson and Graeme Love kept the ball out. Bryce made it 2-0 in 77 minutes when Townsley headed it into his path and he hit it home from the edge of the box. With 5 minutes left Steve Mallan netted for Queens but offside was given. (this 'goal' was reported on TV and in some newspapers as real and the score as 3-0). This confusion summed up the afternoon for Caley Thistle and things can only improve.
