I think we were lucky to go away with anything today. We lack killer instinct to finish games off. Wharton immense as was Graham. Smart had a few easy chances but couldn't convert. Disappointing given that he wanted to show the fans who binned him what they were missing. Still, great point and a massive challenge next week v an ever improvingp Edinburgh City.
Great summing up sir. Agree with all your comments 😁
Quite an entertaining if somewhat average game. Keeper and both full backs are an accident waiting to happen. Keeper in particular.
Wharton was my MOTM. Doing what he does best in keeping it simple. Played a key role in the goal with a great shift of feet before putting over the cross. Will was great too. Gary Philips also worth a mention. Good to see him back in the side and he made us tick although he faded a bit towards the end.
Laughing at the QP goalie coming up for the corner at the end. Wasn't quite laughing as much when he got a clean header away which Goodfellow did well to turn over for the corner that led to the goal. Fairly straightforward ball into the box as well. We haven't been able to defend those consistently well in the six years I've been following the Rovers - fact!
Agree re the referee. Bookings today were outrageous.
On the evidence so far there isn't much between any of the sides in this league outside Cove and Edinburgh by the looks of it.
Agree D7 - said at the game today that Brian Wharton was superb. I'd have him as Captain IMO
Should have won that game, would say it was a pretty even game, with Rovers being very wasteful, and yet again being very slack in the last 5 minutes which seems to happen most games, very unlucky, but they really need to stop conceding due to stupid mistakes in the dying minutes

Thought we could have hung on as Queens never really threatened- but as they have done in the past , hit us with a sucker punch from a set piece in injury time. Probably a fair result but still frustrating. These type of goals seem to haunt us over the last few years either a corner or free kick swung in and somebody manages to head in basically unchallenged ! Still fairly open league if you exclude Cove - most teams capable of taking points off each other. We are in a so much better place than this time last year.
