A rampant Queen’s Park continued their unbeaten start to the League Two season as they breezed past bottom of the league Brechin City 3-0 at Hampden.
The home side dominated the away team all game and the match looked to be done after 23 minutes following strikes from Jai Quitongo and Bob McHugh.
.Brechin looked deflated over the 90 minutes and with no creative impact to give them any chances, it’s no surprise they sit at the bottom of the table. Darren Lyon finished them off with 20 minutes to go.
On another good day for Ray McKinnon’s side, here are three things we learned.
A great defensive structure
It’s no surprise to see how Queen’s Park are yet to concede a goal this year in the league. Both centre-backs, Lee Kilday and Stuart Morrison, battle for everything. They are great at doing the basics, winning their headers and tackles and giving the ball out to either the full backs or midfielders to allow them to play.
Also, with Willie Muir in goals, he brings great communication and structure into the team, constantly giving his outfield players instructions whether it is to release the ball, push out or hold the high line.
Strong on the right
Quitongo and Michael Doyle have a great understanding of each other’s game as they dominated this right-hand side.
Signed this season from Dumbarton, Quitongo already has two goals in 6 appearances in all competitions this season. He is a very tricky winger, whether it’s taking on the defender and putting in a cross, or cutting inside to have a shot. He looks like a very good signing for Queen’s Park.
This is especially the case when paired up with Michael Doyle who was signed from Falkirk in the summer.
Brechin lack the fight
Although we are only 5 games into the League Two season now, it’s looking like the Brechin team will be nearer the bottom half the table as they sit rock bottom right now.
The team as a whole look low in confidence already which is a worrying sign for City fans, especially if they are at the lower end of the table come the season’s end.
