Queen of the South 2-0 Greenock Morton

Two first-half goals were enough to give Queen of the South victory against Greenock Morton in the Scottish Championship.

Gavin Reilly headed Queens ahead early on and Ian McShane's strike doubled the hosts' advantage in the 18th minute.

Nacho Novo, Jonathan Page, Joe McKee and Tony Wallace all threatened as bottom club Morton tried to work their way back into the match.

Daniel Carmichael and Paul Burns came close to adding a third for Queens.
