League leaders rampant in victory
Derek Lyle netted twice as Queen of South thrashed 10-man Stranraer 5-0.
The Scottish Division Two leaders went a goal up after 17 minutes when Paul Burns fired past David Mitchell from the edge of the area to score his first goal since September 15.
Things went from bad to worse for Stranraer seven minutes later when Mitchell was sent off for a professional foul on Doonhamers striker Nicholas Clark in the penalty area.
Substitute goalkeeper Russell Cadwell's first job was to pick the ball out of the net after Ryan McGuffie placed his penalty into the bottom right of his goal to make it 2-0, before Lyle added a third from 10 yards out before half time.
The visitors made it 4-0 up after 59 minutes when Clark found the top corner from the edge of the area before Lyle grabbed a second from 20 yards out 12 minutes later to make it 5-0.
