Match Report


The match started rather uneventfully, with a lacklustre first half giving way to a more intense battle after the break. Queens' fortunes shifted notably following an injury to Jimmy Kerr and the substitution of Alan Smith.

Initially, Queens struggled to convert their attacking efforts into goals during the first period. However, Smith's introduction changed the dynamic entirely. Immediately, he injected purpose into their attack, and within 15 minutes, he broke through the defence on his own to net a superb goal.

Clydebank's defence, which had been solid until then, found itself under increasing pressure as Queens intensified their attacks. There were some rough challenges, notably from McGhee, who eventually received a booking. Collumbine suffered an injury and was replaced by newcomer Ian Russell midway through the half, but this substitution failed to stem the tide. Queens capitalised on their momentum, with Smith and Davidson combining to create an opportunity for McChesney, who duly found the net for their second goal.
