Queen of the South late show downs Morton
Three second-half goals gave Queen of the South a 3-0 Ladbrokes Championship victory over promotion-chasing Morton.
Stephen Dobbie came closest to breaking the deadlock for Queens in the first half when his dipping volley went narrowly wide and at the other end Lawrence Shankland got on the end of a free-kick from Ross Forbes but saw his header come back off the post.
The hosts went ahead in the 71st minute when Dominic Thomas played in Derek Lyle and he made no mistake in firing past Derek Gaston.
And Kyle Jacobs doubled the lead seven minutes from time when Jacobs' shot from distance went in off the bar.
Joe Thomson then wrapped it up in stoppage time, when he capped a superb length-of-the-field run with a cool finish past Gaston.
