Queen of the South 1-1 Dunfermline Athletic: Gary Oliver earns point

Queen of the South striker Gary Oliver struck in the second half to deny Dunfermline Athletic a first win of the Scottish Championship season.

Kyle Turner gave Dunfermline an eighth-minute lead with a 20-yard shot.

Allan Johnston's hosts levelled against the manager's former club when Oliver finished coolly from a Kevin Holt pass.

Queens almost snatched victory late on when Dunfermline's Paul Paton hit the ball off his own post, but both sides are now on two points after two games.
