Queen's Park 2 - 0 Dumbarton

Spiders started the game in impressive fashion with Ronald shooting just wide from twenty five yards with the keeper beaten and Mark Ferry volleying against the post from six yards. Richard Bowers twice attempted to lob the Dumbarton keeper and came close before we eventually took the lead around the half hour.

A sensational solo run saw Alan Trouten beat six Dumbarton players and then the goalkeeper before firing high into the empty net from four yards. A truly fantastic goal, worthy of a more prestigious occasion than this. Spiders continued to pressure and Bowers could have once more scored before a Tony Quinn header was saved by the keeper, which was virtually the last action of a Spiders dominated half.

It was a similiar vein in which the second half started and a forward trialist shot just wide before a Paul Paton cross was headed just wide by Mick Dunlop. On the hour however, Queen's had their second when the Trialist forward bent a delightful shot past the keeper and in at the far post. After that Queen's missed more chances, with Quinn, Trouten, Cairney, Colquhoun and the Trialist all coming close.

Alexander Cowie had been all too quiet all night but they only save he made all night was a decent stop from a Tommy Coyne turn and drive from eight yards which he held well.
