Cowdenbeath 0-5 Queen of the South

Derek Lyle scored a hat-trick as Queen of the South cruised to a win at Championship strugglers Cowdenbeath.

Lyle opened the scoring for Queens on the stroke of half-time, heading home Ian McShane's corner.

He then teed-up strike partner Gavin Reilly for his 11th goal this term and two minutes later Lyle lashed in his second before McShane added a fourth in the 61st minute from a Kevin Holt pass.

Lyle's third was a penalty after Thomas O'Brien fouled Iain Russell.
