Raith Rovers 1-0 Queen of the South

Mark Stewart's stoppage-time strike gave Raith Rovers victory over Queen of the South and moved them up to third.

Queens carved several openings with Stephen Dobbie among those off target in the first half.

Dobbie also threatened with a free-kick as time began to run out, Kevin Cuthbert making the save.

But Stewart slid in to settle the match and Rovers now trail Dundee United by one point and Championship leaders Hibernian by four.

The Doonhamers slip to fourth, two points behind their victors.
