Queen of the South: a step closer to promotion

Queen of the South got off to a good start in their bid for promotion via the playoffs.

They beat Falkirk 2-1 in the first leg of their quarter final tie, on Tuesday 6 May.

If the Doonhamers can keep ahead on aggregate in the second leg away from home they will meet Hamilton Academical in the semi final and take another step closer to football in Scotland's top flight.

Queen of the South prepare for play-offs

It's that stage in the football season where every match is the biggest game of the season so far - the play offs.

With Carlisle United's relegated place confirmed, we look North of the border at Queen of the South.

The Doonhamers take on Falkirk at Palmerston Park in the first leg of their play-off Championship quarter final, tonight, Tuesday, 6 May.

Fiona McIlwraith has this report:

Queen of the South game abandoned after death of fan

Queen of the South's Scottish Championship game at Greenock Morton was abandoned after the death of a home fan in the crowd.
