Queen's Park underlined their promotion credentials with a deserved victory
The Spiders opened the scoring after 13 minutes when David Weatherston showed great skill on the left and crossed for Alan Trouten to head home.
The visitors clinched the points in the 73rd minute when Trouten was fouled
by goalkeeper Cammy Bell and got up to score from the spot himself.
