Tip Reasoning

  • Fewer than three goals have been scored in the last five Queens Park home games and the nine of the last ten home matches of landlords Partick Thistle.
  • Queens Park have avoided defeat in their last six home league games (3 draws, 3 defeats).
  • Dunfermline have failed to win their last seven away league games (2 draws, 5 defeats).

Homesick Pars too short for Championship playoff first leg 

Expect a reaction from Dunfermline after their wretched defeat to Queen of the South last time out, but John Hughes’ men are still a long way from looking like near even money shots to win at Queens Park. The Pars went into their last regular season game with a chance of avoiding this relegation playoff, but after leading at half-time, blew up in the second half to lose at home to the Championship’s already-relegated bottom club.

Jeered off the pitch by their own fans, the Pars cannot afford any slip-ups against League One opponents that are unbeaten in their last six at their temporary home of Firhill Stadium. Don’t expect to see many goals here either because the pitch could be in an unfavourable state for flowing football after two games within the space of 24 hours.

The ground sharing arrangement between Queens Park and Partick Thistle has taken it’s toll and we note that only three of 20 league games played on it by both clubs combined since the turn of the year saw more than two goals scored.

Unders look good as Firhill Stadium pitch has taken a battering

Backing fewer than three goals is a similar price to Queens Park in the double chance market and our preference is only just on the ‘unders’ play here.

Pars boss Hughes has wretched play-off history with this division, having taken Raith Rovers down via them in the 2016/17 campaign. This has the makings of another bad night for Dunfermline, who are undergoing quite a few changes off the field with German investors planning for a bright future.

With no win in their last seven road trips, we feel this is unlikely to go their way on Wednesday and believe a 1-1 draw, – that would have landed in three of the last five Queens Park home games – is the logical correct score forecast.
