QP players do club proud
Airdrieonians ....... 3 Queen’s Park ....... 2 Queen’s Park gaffer Gus MacPherson believes his players have been a credit to the club.
The Hampden Park boss guided the amateur side to League One last season and were among the favourites to be relegated at the start of this year’s campaign.
But stunning performances in games throughout the season has seen Queen’s just miss out on a play-off spot at the final hurdle.
MacPherson said:“The way they have applied themselves throughout the season has been a credit to the club. The players take full credit for the way they’ve competed at this level this season.”
Queen’s needed other results to swing their way while also hoping to beat Airdrieonians by a large margin to have a chance at the play-offs.
But Andy Ryan’s double and an Iain Russell strike were enough to cancel out goals from Dario Zanatta and Kalvin Orsi to earn the North Lanarkshire side a place in the top three.
MacPherson admitted he was disappointed to round off the season in defeat. He said:“We should never have lost the game. A lot of people would have put it down as a meaningless fixture because of the goal difference but we could probably have got three or four goals in the opening period.”
