Hat-trick hero rescues point againstWasps
with a second. This time Connor Shields floated a teasing ball in from the right for Jake Hastie to power a header in at the left post on 15 minutes.
It was an all-action first half and Dobbie cut in from the right on 20 minutes to force a full-length save from Parry.
Yet again the Wasps buzzed back into Queens’ penalty box with an inviting Scott Taggart diagonal ball from the right picking out Shiels and his looping header dipped under the bar at the left post for goal number three.
However, the scoring was far from over and that man Dobbie picked up the cudgels to do the damage yet again.
He played a neat one-two at the edge of the box with Lyndon Dykes before smashing a rising shot into the roof of the net to signal the start of a comeback in 36 minutes.
Then, with just a couple of minutes left before the interval, Dobbie swept in from the right, dragged the ball across two defenders and curled a low, left-footed effort around the sprawling keeper and into the net.
The second half stood little chance of emulating the five-goal first period and it took until 70 minutes for Dobbie to score again.
This time he ran on to a sideways pass from Andy Stirling at the edge of the box to slam a low drive inside the left post and send the home fans into raptures.
Palmerston chief Naysmith said: “I don’t normally single out players, but Stephen carried us today. We were off it and got a point basically because of him.”
