Queen of the South facing Uefa battle
Tuesday 26 August 2008
Queen of the South manager Gordon Chisholm has urged his men to believe they can overturn their Uefa Cup deficit against the Danish side Nordsjaelland. Queens lost 2-1 in the home leg after conceding two soft goals, the first in the second minute.
But Chisholm is more optimistic after studying the game again on television. "I think they might have a wee bit more belief," he said. "I was saying we are capable of beating them. I felt we deserved something, so hopefully they are thinking in the same vein now, and I will say it to them again before the game.
"We pushed them back second half. For the first 25 minutes we were the better team. We played well, the only thing we did was lose two bad goals. Apart from that we played some good stuff. On the night we were really disappointed, but we are going out positive."
Chisholm will not risk wide midfielder Gary Arbuckle after he tweaked a hamstring in the 2-0 victory over Dunfermline in the Alba Challenge Cup but otherwise has a full squad.
