Queens Park eased to a comfortable win over Annan at Hampden Park.
Jamie Longworth put the Spiders ahead on the half hour, tapping home from six yards for his 18th goal of the season.
Ian Watt then made it 2-0 in the 71st minute, turning in Anthony Quinn's cross from 12 yards.
Annan could have given themselves a glimmer of hope in the 87th minute but defender Jack Steele shot wide from the edge of the box.
The Galabankies remain three points adrift of the play-offs with two games left to play while Queens Park will secure second spot if they beat Stranraer next week.
