HT SCORELINE FROM EAST END PARK

Queens getting forward every time.
Long ball headed down by Brownlie. Down to Dobbie into the pars box, shot on goal is saved by Murdoch at the right hand post.
Throw in at the NE. The NW is open tonight but it`s looking awfy sparse, as is the Norrie.
From the left it`s crossed into the box, cleared out wide and out for Queens throw in.
Morris takes the free kick, out wide to Talbot and down to McMullan. Ball over the byline by Talbot. Throw in Queens.
Hamill plays it up the wing, and another crack on Nat this time. Still nothing from the ref as the pars fans boo. Stopped this time as the offside flag goes up.
Morris makes sure to Murdoch, clears to Nat, then to Herron nicely done. Nat plays it wide to Higgy, chases but slides at the Queens byline. Picked up by Brownlie, the baw no` Higgy although that would have been awfy nice too. Played out wide and but into the middle for Nat.

Talbot has the spare and gives to Murdoch. Nat takes a sore one in front of the ref but play on.
Ref having a word with Geggan and Dykes.
An easy goal for Thomson who was waiting at the left hand post and put it past a hapless Murdoch. Where were our defence? Naewhere.
Too many high balls being played. Bounce out of play. Queens throw in. Brownlie to take.
Murdoch takes the free kick. Down to Nat, runs off him and Queens fire it up to our half. On to Murdoch to clear, goes too short, Nat misses it, Queens in the box, Talbot clear but only to 30 yards out, Morris mis hits and the ball is out of play. One senses panic in the pars half.
Talbot up thankfully. Yellow card for the perpetrator.
Robinson hoofs to the pars half. Over to McMullan leaps over two players - really! - and Talbot is taken out by a Queens player in front of the NW. Shocking tackle.
Clark is elbowed in the shoulder and a free kick fo the pars. Taken and goes to a Queens wide player.
Played short to Talbot, down to Higgy crosses to the box and it`s too close a call for Herron to get to. Clark gets hit in the process and the physio has been on for him. He looks ok too.
From the left it`s a left footed cross and saved by a leaping Murdoch.
Offside flag after he takes it - hmm - and the throw in goes to the opposition. Out for another corner to Queens.
Robinson, displaying a custard yellae strip, punts it to the halfway line. Nat heads to Geggan then to Herron but a poor pass to Talbot thankfully earns him a throw in at the NW.
Stephen Dobbie hoofs a ball upfield, Dykes fires it past Geggan but it`s over the byline. Throw in Pars. Geggan to Higgy. Another throw in for the pars.
Queens had a chance to equalise when Thomas made his way to the 18 yard line past Geggan and Morris. He handed it to Dobbie who fired it past the left hand post and it probably landed on Peter`s knee.
Brownlie let it go over his head and it landed perfectly at Moff`s feet.
Morris cleared the ball, hoofed it down to a running Moff who fired it into the net from close range.

Gentlemanly conduct by Queens who give the ball to Murdoch.
Orange bits. Like duck feet!
A clash happened after Geggan took the throw in which resulted in the ball being played long to Morris. Physio is on.
Oops not Paton - he`s on the bench! - it was Clark.
He puts it long and out of play into the away end. Throw in taken. Long ball to a running Morris. Geggan heads down a high ball. Herron passes it to Paton in to the queens box, bounces high, brought down to McMullan but he has missed it. The pars fans happy with the first 5 mins of play.

I make no apologies for wearing my long christmas jumper tonight - it keeps the derriere warm and it`s cauld enough ootside to build snowmen!
Strange I was just thinking about Andy Dowie last night too.
Good evening from East End Park with me, Buffy, for tonight`s SPFL Championship fixture between DAFC and Queen of the South
