The very best of luck to Queen of the South at Hampden Park this afternoon. Apart from the blue half of Glasgow, just about everyone else in the world wants the Doonhamer's to pull off a shock Scottish Cup win against Rangers. Several fleeting ex-Dumbarton men are now at QoS, so that's me settled. Burns' bidding aside, it's a massive mount to climb. The 'Gers have had two major trophies clawed away from their grasp over the past ten days, so they will be in no mood to concede to First Division opposition, however brave. Queen of the South, for their part, haven't played a competitive match for a month now. Rested they might be, but a cup final is no sinecure.
