But Spi­ders still in play-off bat­tle

waved away when Brady’s drive ap­peared to strike a de­fender’s arm.

Gus MacPher­son was then sent to the stand af­ter he com­plained about a crunch­ing chal­lenge on Mitchell. In­stead of let­ting the physio come on to treat him, Mitchell was or­dered to crawl to the touch­line.

MacPher­son prob­a­bly had not even reached a seat be­fore his team were a goal down. A long punt tempted Muir off his line, but Todorov poked out a long leg be­fore the keeper got there and then rolled the ball into the empty net.

Queen’s re­sponded well and Zanatta’s scuffed shot struck the wood­work be­fore half time.

Ma­ley again foiled the vis­i­tors early in the sec­ond half, this time turn­ing away Mitchell’s drive.

The in­jured Gavin was then re­placed by McIl­duff and Ewan MacPher­son came on for Cameron Foy. Orsi was then thrown on for Burns but soon af­ter Livi broke Queen’s hearts with a sec­ond. McGeever failed to deal prop­erly with a high ball and when it bounced to Mullen, he hooked it over his head and into the net.

The goal knocked the stuff­ing out of Queen’s as ruth­less Livi picked Queen’s off twice, through Mullin and Cad­den, although the fi­nal goal looked off­side.
