QP play­ers do club proud

Rutherglen Reformer - - Drive Time -

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.”
