Raith Rovers 2-1 Queen of the South

Calum Elliot scored twice as Raith Rovers came from behind to beat Scottish Championship rivals Queen of the South.

Gavin Reilly broke the deadlock in the second half when his right-footed strike found the top corner.

But Elliot levelled with a curling shot shortly after Raith had falled behind.

And Elliot secured victory for the hosts late on with a low shot from 12 yards, the result taking Raith to within five points of leaders Hamilton.
