    Peter Grant after 2-2 draw against QOS

    I think we had a great chance to go ahead just after the half hour when the score line was 0-0, we miss it and that changed the game a little bit but to then lose the goals the way we did, which were two terrible goals from my point of view, losing one was bad enough but to lose two goals in quick succession was incredible and that has happened too often at home this season, we have periods like that which is something we have to irradiate from our game.

    The one thing I know about this group of players they have an unbelievable character and commitment to this football club and they proved that again in the second half. I get more annoyed with them because I know the standards they set, day in day out when they come here to train. I know the levels they perform at, even last week at Inverness going from 2-1 down late in the game to get a late equaliser and a vital point up there, I could never question their character but today at half-time I was so disappointed, probably frustrated and angry all in the one, because we were giving ourselves too much to do. The demands that they demand of their selves is incredible, to come here and train after long shifts at work and to show that commitment again in the second half, I’m very proud of the spirit they have but frustrated because I think it is two points dropped rather than one gained.

    We had great possession and were on top before Queen’s took the lead, but we had a great chance in front of goal just prior to their opening goal. There were probably too many players round about the ball and it was a big chance. We had a lot of the ball but didn’t work their goalkeeper enough. I made a slight change at half-time, Kevin Cawley who has been outstanding for us, but it just wasn’t working for him in the first half and I had to change something, and I thought that worked well, not the fact that Kevin came off I just thought bring Alan Trouten who has a game to understand and pick up and find space and he gets his goal. Liam Buchanan has been excellent and it has been very harsh to leave him out because he is an outstanding striker and he has been outstanding around the boys as well, and Kevin O’Hara had a fantastic finish to draw us level, the game was strange the two goals came in quick succession for both teams but I’m probably going away home more frustrated than Allan Johnston, I’m thinking two points dropped, he is probably a point gained.
