Queen of the South 1-2 Raith Rovers

Promotion play-off qualifiers Raith Rovers extended their unbeaten Scottish Championship run to eight games with victory at Queen of the South.

Kyle Benedictus headed home inside eight minutes but it proved a half of few chances thereafter.

The hosts levelled when Dale Hilson rifled home after a good turn, but Craig Barr restored Raith's lead.

Rovers are four points behind third-placed Hibernian, who have two games in hand.
