Queen of the South 2-1 Cowdenbeath

Queen of the South held on to beat Cowdenbeath, despite a late rally from the visitors.

Christopher Higgins fired the hosts in front by turning in Christopher Mitchell's corner.

Gavin Reilly produced a neat finish from close range to double Queen's advantage.

There was a glimmer of hope for Cowden when substitute Sammy Stewart fired home but it proved to be too little, too late for the away side.
