Queen of the South 2-1 Raith Rovers

Queen of the South got the better of Raith Rovers in the Scottish Championship to strengthen their promotion hopes.

Iain Russell converted Ian McShane's corner to give Queens an early lead.

However, Lewis Vaughan struck following Christian Nade's pass to draw Raith level.

The hosts were back in front before half-time, Gavin Reilly netting from close range, and that proved to be the winner.
