Queen of the South held off a late fight back from Falkirk to claim victory in their Championship game.

Queenof the south  4  Falkirk 2  HT: 2-0

Stephen Dobbie opened the scored for Queens, reacting first after goalkeeper Robbie Thomson's clearance hit off him.

Dobbie set up Lyndon Dykes for the second soon after and Darren Brownlie headed the third with 15 minutes left.

 

But Joe McKee's free-kick and a Jordan McGhee strike brought the Bairns late hope until Lyle Taylor settled the game with a stoppage-time breakaway.

The victory means Queens stay fifth in the table, while Falkirk remain second bottom.
