Albion Rovers 0-3 Queen of South

Queen of the South extended their lead at the top of the Second Division to 17 points with a comfortable victory at Albion Rovers.

Rovers could have taken the lead after Christopher Higgins' challenge on Marvin Andrews resulted in a penalty but Anthony Stevenson blasted the spot-kick over.

And Nicky Clark soon broke the deadlock at the other end with a close-range effort.

Queens were awarded a penalty of their own midway through the second period when Alan Reid fouled Clark.

Ryan McGuffie's effort was blocked by goalkeeper Ryan Scully but Derek Lyle converted the rebound.

Lyle then set up Derek Young for a tap-in to complete the scoring.
