Ross County vs Queen of South

Tuesday 6th April 2010

Boyd thwarts 10-man Queens

Scott Boyd scored a last-gasp equaliser to secure a 1-1 draw for Ross County against 10-man Queen of South.

Jordan McMillan's sending off for a second bookable offence just after half-time looked to have swung the game in County's favour, but Paul Burns then put Queens in front.

The visitors withstood an onslaught from County until Gary Miller crossed for Boyd to volley home in the 90th minute, but the result does little for either sides promotion hopes.

The home side were on top in the first half and Martin Scott tried his luck from long range but Queens goalkeeper Scott Fox tipped his effort around the post.

And Michael Gardyne also had a chance for the Staggies on the half-hour mark but he blazed his shot over the crossbar.

The visitors were left facing an uphill task when defender McMillan was dismissed for a second bookable offence eight minutes after the break.

But Queens stunned the home side by taking the lead 63 minutes in, when Burns slotted home from six yards out after his team-mate Shaun O'Connor had fluffed his lines.

County piled on the pressure and were finally rewarded with 24 seconds of normal time remaining when Boyd volleyed home from close range after being picked out by Miller.
