Queens fans asked to behave at tonight's Hibs match

Fans attending tonight's match between Queen of the South and Hibernian are being asked to listen to safety advice given by stewards and police.

It follows on from some disorder at the Doonhamer's last high-profile home fixture against Rangers.

Terregles Street will be closed for the duration of the match, due to the expected increase in traffic.

Queens are four points adrift of the play-off positions so will be looking to make home advantage count against the Edinburgh side.

Chief Inspector David McCallum has this message for fans:

Police urge Doonhamers to listen to safety advice

Police Scotland are asking fans attending tonight's Queen of the South match against Hibernian to listen to safety instructions.

Terregles Street will be closed for the duration of the match, due to the increased traffic expected.

Unfortunately at the last match we had difficulties with people simply ignoring instructions being given, particularly around health and safety, so please if you're given instructions by stewards and or police officers go with what they're telling you to do."
