Defender Callum Fordyce scored again as Queen of the South made it back-to-back wins with victory over Dumbarton.

Fordyce's header capped a dominant first half from the hosts which saw visiting goalkeeper Scott Gallacher keep out efforts from Shaun Rooney and twice from Stephen Dobbie.

Gallacher was called upon again to deny Dobbie.

Sons' substitute Calum Gallagher had a second half chance but Queens held on for a win that lifts them up to third.
