Ton Up Lyle Sinks The Pars

Last updated : 28 August 2016 By Queens Mad





Derek Lyle's 100th goal for Queen of the South maintained their unbeaten start to the Scottish Championship by winning away to Dunfermline Athletic.

The Pars had a huge let-off in the 12th minute when Lyle's free-kick hit both posts before David Hutton cleared.

Andy Dowie's header at the far post was converted by Lyle for his third goal in as many games.

Dunfermline were reduced to 10 men in the 62nd minute for Jason Talbot's two-footed tackle on Kyle Jacobs.

Queens now sit joint second in the league behind leaders Hibernian.
