New Queen of the South manager James Fowler is expecting a tough first game in charge against Hearts.
But he's confident his team can get a positive result at home on Saturday.
Queen of the South have named their new manager: James Fowler.
He joined the club as a player-coach in the summer, and was put in temporary control after Jim McIntyre left to join Ross County.
Before taking the reigns at Palmerston he spent most of his career at Kilmarnock, where he made 401 appearances in the former Scottish Premier League - a record.
“I felt when I was given the opportunity that I had to work towards that and I feel that I’ve done that with the preparations and stuff. So not too much will change.”
Queen of the South are due to unveil their new manager later.
The club has called a press conference for two o'clock this afternoon (September 30). Queens have been without a manager since Jim McIntyre left for Ross County three weeks ago.
