MORTON threw away an early lead to Queen of the South at Cappielow on Saturday as the Doonhamers netted either side of half-time to steal a 2-1 win.

Gary Harkins slotted home an early penalty kick after Bob McHugh was man-handled inside the area before Stephen Dobbie scored just before the break with a lovely first-time finish. 

Callum Fordyce poked home a rebound from a long throw three minutes after the restart to seal the points for Queens and end the game with a reverse scoreline from the previous clash between the two sides.
