Alloa Athletic 1-2 Queen of the South

Queen of the South won away for the first time since August as two Gary Oliver goals earned victory at Alloa.

Graeme Holmes fired Alloa ahead with a shot from the edge of the area after just 31 seconds.

Oliver converted a Derek Lyle cross at the second attempt after Andy McNeil had saved his initial effort just 10 seconds into the second half.

Alloa's Jason Marr's shot struck a post before Oliver netted the winning goal when he volleyed home Lyle's cross.

McNeil kept the score down with saves to deny Lyle and Iain Russell.
