Qos Vs Aberdeen

Queen of the South reached their first ever Scottish final by winning a seven-goal thriller against Aberdeen.

Steve Tosh slammed home the opener for Queens, while a header from Andrew Considine levelled before half-time.

Paul Burns finished from close range just for Aberdeen’s Barry Nicholson to imitate , while Sean O’Connor fired the Doonhamers back ahead .

Considine bagged his second header of the day but John Stewart responded by lashing within the winner on hour .
The First Division side will meet either the winner of next weekend’s semi-final, with St Johnstone waiting to play the winner of the Partick Thistle v Rangers replay.

If Rangers were to progress, the Dumfries team would be assured of an area in next season’s Uefa Cup.

And some of Europe’s finest could also be quaking in their boots after a tremendous display from Gordon Chisholm’s men at Hampden.

Queen of the South made a bright start and fewer than three minutes had passed when Soutar battered an attempted clearance against O’Connor, just for the ball to rebound behind for a goal kick.

It was no surprise when the Doonhamers claimed the lead on 22 minutes.

Soutar did not punch clear Ryan McCann’s deep free-kick into the and therefore the ball broke to Andy Aitken, who slipped it back to Tosh.

The former Aberdeen midfielder carefully side-footed his shot from 16 yards high into the highest corner.

Queens had the ball within the net again but Burns had strayed two yards offside before gathering Dobbie’s pass.

Palmerston goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald was called on for the primary time as he gathered a header from Lee Miller.
