Clark at the treble

Nicholas Clark hit a hat-trick as Division Two champions Queen of South claimed a 4-0 win at play-off hopefuls Forfar.

The Doonhamers were looking to avoid their first back-to-back defeats of the season after a midweek loss at Stenhousemuir, and took just 32 minutes to establish their lead. A good passing move ended up at the feet of Michael Paton, who fired the ball home from 12 yards out.

They doubled their lead eight minutes after the break when Paul Burns won the ball in midfield before feeding Derek Lyle, whose cross to the back post was tapped in by Clark.

Two minutes later Clark added his second and the Doonhamers' third. Burns was involved again as he set up the forward to score from the edge of the penalty area.

The win was wrapped up after 84 minutes, midfielder Derek Young playing the ball through for the clinical Clark to complete his treble with his 29th goal of the season.
