Queen of the South battled to a first home win in six weeks by beating Arbroath at Palmerston.

Dan Pybus set them on their way with his first goal for the club when he latched onto Stephen Dobbie's ball and slotted past visiting goalkeeper Derek Gaston.

Arbroath held firm until late on when the hosts grabbed a fortunate second.

Scott Mercer swung the ball into the box and it was turned into his own net by Ricky Little.
