Queen’s Park v Inverness Caledonian Thistle – Robin’s View

Queen's Park host Duncan Ferguson’s Inverness Caledonian Thistle at The National Stadium at Hampden for the first time since a Scott Edgar opener for the Spiders was cancelled out by goals from Ross Tokely and Ian Stewart back in 1997.

Last season Queen’s secured two home wins at Ochilview thanks to winners from Simon Murray and Stephen Eze and this season opened up with a 2-1 success in the Highlands with Dom Thomas and Thomas Robson on target.

You have to go back to 1995 to enjoy a Hampden success with Ian Maxwell, Gary Orr, Brian McPhee and Jamie Rodden finding the net in 4-1 success with one-time Rangers striker John McDonald scoring for the visitors.

After a week where the weather caused a postponement and a snowy pitch at Lochinch Queen’s Park Head Coach Robin Veldman spoke to QPTV about the match.

Robin covered:

  • Players beating Individual Training Plans.
  • Staff beating the weather.
  • Changes at Inverness Caledonian Thistle since last meeting.
  • Unique meeting.
  • This is not us!
