Doonhamers dominate to lift title

Queen of the South were crowned Scottish Second Division champions after a stunning first-half performance helped them hammer 10-man Brechin 6-0.

The visitors needed just 18 seconds to break the deadlock as Nicholas Clark fired into the top corner from 12 yards, before Michael Paton doubled his side's advantage with an 18-yard strike two minutes later.

Ewan Moyes then diverted Christopher Mitchell's cross into his own net from 12 yards to make it 3-0 inside 18 minutes.

Paton netted his second from 20 yards in the 36th minute and Clark capped off a dominant 45 minutes by taking his tally to 33 for the season with a close-range finish three minutes before the interval.

After hitting the post in the 54th minute, Gavin Reilly got his name on the scoresheet three minutes later from six yards.

And to make matters worse for third-placed Brechin, they were reduced to 10 men with 14 minutes remaining when Gerard McLauchlan was dismissed for a second bookable offence.

Double blow for Brechin

Brechin will be without Jonathan Brown (ankle) and Craig Molloy (knee) as they look to derail Queen of the South's title bid at Forfar's Station Park.

The game has been moved as Glebe Park continues to be unplayable and having won 2-1 against Ayr on their adopted ground on Saturday, manager Ray McKinnon is keen for his men to see off the champions-elect.

McKinnon said: "Our move to Forfar worked at the weekend and we are lucky to have players who can counter-attack with speed on their surface.

"Queen of the South will be well-deserved champions but if we can delay them by winning this game and then doing the same on Saturday when we meet again would be terrific."

Midfielder Ian McShane is the only absentee for Queen of the South as they look to be the first side in Britain to be crowned champions this season.

McShane is recovering from hip surgery.

The Doonhamers won titles at Station Park in 1951 and 2002, however player-manager Allan Johnston is keeping everyone cool at Palmerston Park.

Johnston said: "Brechin are a really good side so we can't just pitch up and expect to win. They have only lost once in 17 games and need the points for their own purposes.

"We need to do what we have been doing all season. That is to prepare well and then go out and play well. If we do that then we can win this game."
