Mark Stewart's double helped Raith Rovers to a comfortable win over play-off hopefuls Queen of the South.

Mark Millar had gone close before Stewart's 23rd-minute opener when he fired into the top corner.

Ian McShane had two near things for the visitors before Stewart netted with another strike on 78 minutes.

Lewis Vaughan then wrapped up the win when he found the bottom corner from 14 yards, leaving fourth-placed Queens just one point ahead of Falkirk.
