The home side did all the pressing in the early stages but the first real chance fell to Queen’s Patrick Stuart whose header was straight at Michael Magill. Queen’s gained the upper hand and winger Matt Hughes was brought down in the box. Mark Prenter’s penalty hit the underside of the bar and came out to safety. Minutes later Sport & Leisure had a free kick which deflected off the wall and onto the crossbar. From a right wing corner Adam Robinson had a free header which went wide.
Not much football was in evidence in a hotly contested second half dominated by the home team. Queen’s had another escape as the ball struck the post and keeper Declan Brown came to Queen’s rescue on a number of occasions as Sport & Leisure pumped a series of long balls into the box. Queen’s rallied in the final minutes and Adam Robinson’s low drive was well saved by Magill. A point each was a fair result.
This was certainly not a boring scoreless draw with a number of good chances for each team.
Next game is away to Newington on 5th March ko 3pm
