Queen of the South 1-2 Hearts

Scottish Championship leaders Hearts came from behind to beat Queen of the South in Dumfries.

Daniel Carmichael connected with Lewis Kidd's cross to give Queens the lead.

However, an excellent finish by Billy King levelled matters before the half-time interval.

The game appeared to be heading for a draw until Género Zeefuik's shot deflected into the net and Robbie Neilson's side are now 20 points clear of second-place Hibernian.
