Queen of the South 2-0 Livingston

Queen of the South all but secured a place in the play-offs with victory over Livingston.

Goals from Ian McShane and Iain Russell tied up a victory that leaves Queens three points ahead of Dumbarton and with a much better goal difference with one game left.

The hosts took the lead when McShane went through on goal and slotted under Darren Jamieson.

And Russell calmly converted a second to put the result beyond doubt.
