Queen of the South stayed third in the Scottish Championship after a victory over struggling Dumbarton.

Mark Durnan headed in a second from close range in the 69th minute before Derek Lyle nodded in his fifth of the season.

Queen of the South's victory extended their unbeaten streak to four matches, keeping them seven points behind second-placed Rangers.
