Queen of the South 3-1 Alloa Athletic

Queen of the South pulled away from the relegation play-off zone with their first victory of 2014.

Queens hit the front through Michael Paton's deflected shot and doubled their lead as Gavin Reilly found the top corner with a brilliant volley.

Derek Lyle made the points safe on 55 minutes as he finished from close range at the end of a flowing Queens move.

Substitute Ross Caldwell gave Alloa hope when he turned home Ben Gordon's but the hosts held on.
