Alloa Athletic 1-1 Queen of the South

Alloa Athletic moved six points clear of Championship bottom club Livingston and to within a point of Cowdenbeath with a draw against Queen of the South.

Derek Lyle gave Queens the lead before the break, applying a finishing touch to Daniel Carmichael's cross.

Kyle Benedictus's free header hit the frame of the visitors' goal early in the second period.

But Kevin Cawley levelled the match and ensured a point apiece when he fired home from Ryan McCord's pass.
