Peterhead 3-1 Queen's Park (agg 4-1)

Peterhead striker David Cox (right) scored twice in the first 10 minutes

Peterhead eased into the Second Division play-off final with a convincing win over Queen's Park.

Peterhead, already 1-0 ahead after the first leg in Glasgow, went ahead after four minutes through David Cox, who added his second six minutes later.

Top scorer Rory McAllister ended the game as a contest by stretching the lead further after 64 minutes.

Peterhead's Ryan Strachan was sent off with 10 minutes left, but Lawrence Shankland's reply came too late.

Cox had opened the scoring in the fourth minute when he neatly converted McAllister's pull-back from the right.

The same pair combined for Peterhead's second shortly afterwards.

This time, McAllister crossed from the left with Cox driving the ball into the bottom corner from 12 yards.

The home side added a third just after the hour when David Anderson brought down Graeme Sharp and Cox's free-kick was nodded home by McAllister.

Peterhead were reduced to 10 men when Strachan was shown a straight red card for violent conduct.

Although Lawrence Shankland pulled a goal back with a well-taken volley, the visitors comfortably held on to progress.
