Goals from Gary Harkins, Steven Thompson and Sean Kelly secured the win over the Championship side in the fourth round replay as memories of the home side's stuttering start to the season continue to fade.

"We're delighted to be through to the next round. Queen of the South were very energetic and I'm surprised where they are in the Championship table at the moment," said Lennon.

"That's a fifth clean sheet in nine games now and that shows how hard we're working as a team.

"What they threw at us we coped with very well. Marian Kello only had one save to make.

"Gary Harkins shows the true quality he has, He's never been out of my plans, it's just the boys that have come in have held the jersey. I was also delighted for Sean Kelly to get his first senior goal."

Queen of South manager Jim McIntyre added: "We looked nervous and St Mirren were deserved winners tonight.

"That's a sore one because we're better than that. St Mirren made the most of their second opportunity, we didn't."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
