Queen Of The South have a remarkable record of scoring goals against Rangers whatever the disparity between the sides.
Going all the way back to 2008 Queens have scored in nine out of twelve meetings with the Gers and five of the six games played at Palmerston. Even this season when 5-0 and a man down they still popped up with a consolation goal in the last ten minutes of the match.
It then took an injury time goal from Martyn Waghorn to rescue the points at Ibrox later in the year after QOS had taken a first half lead. All in all, since Rangers have been in the Championship, there have been eight meetings and Queen Of The South have scored in every one. That’s more than can be said for Rangers.
They have found a little bit of form too, particularly at home where they have lost just once in seven games. Falkirk, Raith, Morton and St Mirren have all failed to win here of late with Queens scoring against every one of them. That’s enough to see them rise to fourth place and into the promotion playoff positions.
Rangers will have to contend without their top scorer, Martyn Waghorn, who is out injured for up to two months. It will give the Gers an opportunity to perhaps start both King and O Halloran and that may be no bad thing with their forward line looking a little jaded over the past few weeks.
They have still been dominating games but have had to battle for the three wins in their last five games, requiring an injury time goal in two of them. Handicap backers should take note that they haven’t won by more than one goal in all of that time.
Queen Of The South v Rangers Betting Preview Betting Odds
Rangers are strong favourites at a price of 1.37 (7/19) with Marathon Bet and should win the game outright. Queen Of The South are a best priced 8/1 with McBookie while the draw is available at 5.5 (9/2) with Marathon Bet.
Both teams to score has a chance but is relatively short at 2.25 (5/4) with Coral. It may be better to take a chance on Queens scoring again at 2.1 (11/10) with Coral and Betfair. Queens to score +0.5 team goals looks to be as good a bet as there is available although it’s a price that may lengthen a touch more in the days before kick off.
