Chris Duggan stars as Queen's Park defeat Cowdenbeath

Chris Duggan scored both goals in a dominant personal display as Queen's Park won the Ladbrokes League One play-off semi-final first leg 2-0 against Cowdenbeath at Hampden Park.
Duggan fired home inside 60 seconds and doubled the lead from the penalty spot in the 66th minute for the League Two team, putting League One Cowdenbeath under severe pressure for Saturday's second leg.
Duggan gave the Spiders a perfect start, curling a shot past Grant Adam from the edge of the box.
The lead was almost doubled two minutes later as Sean Burns just missed the target.
Declan McDaid went close to bringing the visitors level, but his 30-yard effort flashed past the post.
With half-time approaching, Joe Bradley and Liam Brown should have done better from close range for the hosts.
Duggan forced a good save from Adam early in the second period just before Kyle Miller headed narrowly over for the visitors.
The outstanding Duggan again went close in an action-packed period of play that continued with each keeper making an excellent stop.
Duggan was unsurprisingly at the centre of the second goal. He was fouled by Chris Kane in the box and slotted the subsequent penalty into the bottom left corner.
It was nearly 3-0 with Adam denying Vincent Berry and Duggan hitting the post from close range.
Cowdenbeath came close through Dean Brett's shot and Kane's header but it stayed 2-0.
