Queen of the South 1-0 Greenock Morton

Queen of the South claimed their first win since August by beating Greenock Morton in the Scottish Championship.

Derek Lyle headed home Alex Harris's cross to give Queens the lead just before the quarter-hour mark.

Ryan Conroy's shot trickled wide and Harris' long-range effort was tipped over as the hosts pushed for a second.

Morton crept back into the game, though, and Alex Samuel had a shot from eight yards out for the visitors, but it went over.
