Champions march on

Irn-Bru Second Division champions Queen of the South recorded a second win over Brechin in the space of four days as they triumphed 2-1.

The runaway leaders clinched the title in emphatic fashion with a 6-0 win over third-placed City on Wednesday night but they did not find it as easy this time around.

Mark Durnan headed the Doonhamers in front from Chris Mitchell's 16th-minute corner and that was the way it stayed until 17 minutes from time, despite Derek Lyle heading against a post.

It was Lyle, however, who grabbed the crucial second from another Mitchell corner, converting right footed into the top corner from 12 yards.

Brechin immediately pulled one back from the penalty spot to set up an interesting finale, Alan Trouten converting after Mark Durnan's foul on Andrew Jackson, but it was not to be for the visitors.

Champions look for same again

Queen of the South host Brechin City just three days after a 6-0 success against the Glebe Park men clinched the Second Division title.

And the Doonhamers include Daniel Orsi in their squad after he completed his loan spell at Annan.

Ian McShane remains out with a hip problem with player/manager Allan Johnston not planning many changes despite the league being won.

Johnston explained: "This game will be really difficult as they will be out to make up for Wednesday night. They are a good side who have given us problems before.

"We have the Ramsdens Cup Final next weekend and there are places in that game available so there is plenty to play for. Wednesday was terrific but I do not want us to fall flat now.

Brechin boss Ray McKinnon has defensive problems for his side's trip as Gerry McLauchlan is suspended following his dismissal in Wednesday's defeat.

Ewan Moyes picked up an ankle injury in that game and he joins Jonny Brown (ankle) and Craig Molloy (knee) in missing out.

McKinnon said: "We are really short of bodies for a game that is all about character and reaction from my players. After turning our season around by being solid defensively I was astounded by the goals they lost the other night. They were horrendous.

"It is a big ask to pick ourselves up but the guys had been magnificent for me up until Wednesday and I am sure they will be again."
