Dare to dream, Queens ready for Danes

August 26th 2008 06:41
Queen of the South attempt to make football history tonight as they board a flight & head for Denmark, where they will play there return UEFA Cup match against FC Nordsjaelland.

Queens who had never played European football before in the clubs history, reached the competition by being the runner up in last seasons Scottish Cup final.

Queens midfielder Steve Tosh spoke to BBC about the up coming match "We are there on merit after what we achieved last season," Queen of the South midfielder Tosh told BBC Sport.

"We don't want to come in for just one game and get knocked out."

Queens will try and do what no other Scottish team has done in European football, no team in Scotland has ever come back from losing the first leg of a European tie. But the Dumfries based club are very confident of defying history, and coming back to Scotland with the next round of UEFA Cup action firmly in there sights.

Queens will be boosted by the poor form which Nordsjaelland has shown in recent weeks, where they have struggled in competition & recently lost to Sonderjysk 1-0 just last week.

The Doonhamers on the other hand, have started to show the form which seen them advance into the Scottish Cup final last season. Two recent clean sheets, and gusty wins over Partick Thistle & Dunfermline have lifted the spirits in the south of Scotland.

It is a big occasion not only for Queens but Scotland football in general, with 1,000 traveling Doonhamers making the trip to Farum Park they are sure to make some noise & do the country of Scotland proud.
