Falkirk lost their place at the top of the Scottish Championship after Gavin Reilly came off the bench to clinch victory for Queen of the South.

Bob McHugh fired wide from close range as the hosts threatened in the first half.

Team-mate Michael Paton directed a shot narrowly over after the break but Reilly soon came on to end the impasse.

The substitute headed in Derek Lyle's cross and then drilled home a left-foot shot for his second.
