Jason Kerr's second-half effort was all that separated the sides as Queen of the South edged a win over Brechin City in a match which saw both teams reduced to 10 men at Glebe Park.
Brechin's Ally Love and Kerr both saw red for violent conduct as tempers frayed in second-half stoppage time.

Scorer: Kerr 60
Kerr had given his side the lead when he found the bottom corner after Connor Murray's corner was only half-cleared.
The visitors close the gap on fourth-place Dundee United to two points.
The hosts had the better of the first-half chances, with Sean Crighton testing goalkeeper Alan Martin before team-mate Connor McLennan's header sailed over the crossbar and Isaac Layne had an effort blocked.
At the other end, Stephen Dobbie fired his free-kick wide and Derek Lyle headed off target on the brink of half-time as the Doonhamers struck back with a couple of chances of their own, but the scores remained level at the break.
Lyle again went close with a barrage of headers as the visitors looked to break the deadlock after the break and their pressing paid off when Kerr gave them the all-important goal.
