Queen of the South 1-0 Alloa Athletic

Queen of South narrowly beat 10-man Alloa Athletic to move to within two points of third-place Rangers in the Scottish Championship.

Kevin Holt's second-half header proved to be enough to extend Alloa's winless run to 12 games.

Wasps goalkeeper Craig McDowall twice denied Queens' Derek Lyle.

The visitors almost levelled when Isaac Layne's effort was cleared off the line before Kyle Benedictus was dismissed for two bookable offences.
