Queens Park vs Annan FC
Annan strolled to a convincing win on a glorious sunny day at the national stadium.
Jim Chapman made a few changes to the team from last weekend and it proved to work a treat.
It took only 6 mins for some action when Kenny Mackay raced through on goal only to be denied by Lochhead in the Queens Park goal. Ally love then went close minutes later only to be denied by Lochhead again.
It was all Annan going forward right up to the 21st minute when they took the lead through Kenny Mackay with a well deserved goal.
16 minutes later Annan went 2 nil up through Josh Todd who headed in an Ally Love corner.
The crucial blow for Queens Park came before half time when Annan scored the third. After some lovely trickery from Todd, Love crept in at the back post to slot home the cross.
Annan started the second half as sharp as the first and Mackay was unlucky when closing down on the keepers clearance and it deflected off him and out for a throw in.
Just a few minutes later Mitchell found himself some space in the middle to dribble towards the edge of the box before finding Love out wide, who put an inviting low cross over for Mackay to score his second.
Queens Park immediately replied with a goal from their half time substitute Joao Pereira Vitoria.
The opposition started to come into the game but it wasn’t long before Annan scored a fifth. Another goal from Josh Todd topped off a fine performance from him, and a tidy strike it was from 20 yards into the bottom corner.
Mackay continued to be a threat and seemed hungry for the hat trick but as Annan kept pushing forward they were hit on the counter attack by Queens. Blair Spittal picked the ball up deep in his own half and ran nearly the length of the pitch before playing Liam Gormley in to score their second. A fine goal but nothing more than a consolation on a day where Annan were on top form
