Queen of the South 1-3 Dundee United

Matthew Smith scores

Dundee United came from behind to beat hosts Queen of the South and go third in the Scottish Championship.

Dom Thomas struck from outside the box to give Queens the lead but Thomas Mikkelsen’s shot quickly levelled matters.

Matthew Smith’s drive early in the second period put the visitors ahead.

And Smith was credited with United’s third from close range as the Tangerines moved a point above Greenock Morton.

Csaba Laszlo’s side have four games in hand over Morton and three in hand over second-placed Livingston and leaders St Mirren.

United are seven points behind Livi and 17 off the Buddies.
