St Mirren Match Preview

We are back at Palmerston tomorrow for our game against Championship leaders St Mirren.

Results haven't gone our way against Saints this season with them winning all three games so far. Three - one and two - nil in Paisley while Stephen Dobbie and Chris Kane had given us a two - nil lead within the opening six minutes of our game in Dumfries, only for them to  came from behind to win by the odd goal in five.   

With nine games left, Queens boss Gary Naysmith knows games don't come much tougher than against St Mirren.

"Tuesday nights match was very frustrating. I felt that we played well apart from our defending for the first fifteen minutes of the second half and that ultimately cost us the game. The players know where we went wrong and we have to try and make sure that we don't make those mistakes again. 

We are still on the fringes of the play offs although Tuesday's result make things a bit more difficult for us but as long as we are still in the hunt we will continue to work hard and give it our best shot. 

We still have nine games left and a lot of football to play and there will be plenty twists and turns before the end of the season.

We have a tough run of games over the next seven days or so, starting against St Mirren.I fully expect them to be crowned champions and win promotion back to the top flight. They have been the most consistent side this season and are currently the country's in form side. To give ourselves a chance of making the play-offs we need to start winning games, and hopefully that will start against St Mirren".

Information for visiting supporters: 

Rosefield Salvage Stand section 6 to 9 have been set aside for St Mirren supporters. Turnstiles 3 and 4 will be in use. In addition we have opened the terrace at the Terregles Street end of the ground. Entry is via turnstiles 1 and 2 on Terregles Street. Please note that no access is available to/from Rosefield and Terregles inside the ground.

Entry is by ticket only. A limited supply of returned away tickets will be made available on the day from the away ticket office from 1345 onwards. Tickets cost £16 for adults, £9 for concessions and under 16's £5. 

Wheelchair access for away supporters is on the south side of Rosefield stand. There is a layby on King Street for vehicles to drop their passengers for flat access to the ground. Disabled parking is available on the north side of the Rosefield Stand. The segregation tunnel will be deployed so direct access to the north parking is not  available.

Away fans will have access to the catering concessions in the Rosefield Stand and Terregles Street Terrace. Pre-match catering is also available at the Arena café with a full menu service.

There will be parking restrictions in place, therefore 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.

There are no known roadworks in the area that will cause any delays.
