Match report
With storms sweeping Scotland this was one of the few cup ties to survive. Gales and rain dominated the first half and there were few shots on goal. In 9 minutes Iain Stewart was sent clear by Paul Cherry but his attempt to chip Lindsay Hamilton was saved. The best first half chance fell to Brian Thomson in 40 minutes when a Sandy Robertson cross reached him in the box but his close range shot went past. The weather improved slightly in the second half and in a 3 minute flurry of quality football the Inverness side scored twice. In 52 minutes Davie Ross crossed from the right to Barry Robson on the edge of the box his first shot was blocked but at the second attempt he hit a superb shot into the net via the underside of the bar. Three minutes later it was 2-0. Roberston played a 1-2 with Ross, another 1-2 with Thomson then sent the ball across goal where Stewart was on hand to knock it in. There was a fright at the other end 3 minutes later when Jim Calder saved at the feet of Scott Edgar. In 66 minutes Hamilton saved a close range shot from Stewart. In 81 minutes Thomson was well placed in the box after an excellent Robertson pass but he hit it past the post. Queens created very little and this was a well deserved win for the home side who now play non-league Annan Athletic in Inverness on the 24th January.
