Queen of the South 1-2 Cowdenbeath

Sean Higgins' stoppage-time strike earned Cowdenbeath a valuable Scottish Championship win at Queen of the South.

Queens started the match brightly and a stunning strike from John Baird was kept out by an equally impressive diving save by Robbie Thomson.

The visitors took the lead just before half-time, Callum Gallagher keeping his cool to slot home.

Derek Lyle headed the hosts level but Higgins got the better of Zander Clark one-on-one to seal Cowden's victory.
