Queen of Sth2Falkirk0

Queen of the South 2-0 Falkirk

Stephen Dobbie scored two fine goals as Queen of the South continued their unbeaten start to the league season with victory over Falkirk.

Dobbie broke the deadlock in the 34th minute, brilliantly curling the ball into the top-right corner from the edge of the box.

And shortly after the interval Dobbie chipped in sweetly off the crossbar after Lyndon Dykes' header was blocked.

Falkirke's Luca Gasparotto missed two chances as the hosts took the points.
