Queen of the South recorded an emphatic victory over Dumbarton to claim their first win in three.

Only goal difference separated the sides ahead of kick-off, but they were level for just 17 minutes until Iain Russell headed in.

The home side's hopes of a third straight win were dashed when Derek Lyle's finish put Queen of the South 2-0 up.

And they put the game to bed when Kevin Holt found the top corner.
