Queen of the South's latest fixture against Inverness CT ended in an away 2-1 loss. I expected more from Queens. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Queen of the South was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 74 minute.
Dunfermline Athletic's previous game in the competition versus Raith Rovers ended in an away 1-1 draw. The whole team didn't turn up, so in the end the draw was a good result. Dunfermline Athletic was not convincing in the first-half and scored in the 79th minute.
So far, QoS plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.50 points per away game on average compared to 0.75 points at home. Although Queen of the South is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 25% home clean sheets.
Dunfermline Athletic has picked up 3 points from the previous six league games. Dunfermline Athletic don't feel the pressure of playing away. So far, they earn an average of 0.50 points per game, both home and away. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Dunfermline Athletic kept a clean sheet in just 0% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Queen of the South or Dunfermline Athletic to win.
Both teams struggle in defence and concede on regular occasions. Queen of the South failed to keep a clean sheet in 25% of home games, while Dunfermline Athletic conceded in 0% of away games. On average, both teams score in 67% of Queen of the South's home and Dunfermline Athletic's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
