Raith Rovers 1-1 Queen of the South

Raith Rovers and Queen of the South drew, maintaining the three-point gap between the sides in the Championship.

Ryan Hardie capitalised on some poor defending to strike Rovers' opener.

Fifth-placed Queens levelled through Stephen Dobbie's 20-yard free-kick, but the hosts claimed the ball had not crossed the line after hitting the bar.

Christopher Higgins, Derek Lyle and Dominic Thomas passed up chances for the visitors and Craig Barr had an effort for the Kirkcaldy side.
