New Queen’s Park head coach Callum Davidson got off to the perfect start as his side came from behind to beat cinch Premiership promotion chasers Raith 2-1 at Stark’s Park.
Rovers had taken an early lead when Jack Hamilton converted Dylan Easton’s cross in the third minute.
The Spiders, who beat Dunfermline last week to end a 15-game winless run in the Championship, were level three minutes before half-time when midfielder Cameron Bruce curled in a right-foot effort from the edge of the box.
Queen’s Park – who started the afternoon second-bottom of the table – turned the match around in the 56th minute when debutant Sean Welsh, signed after leaving Inverness, headed in from a corner.
Raith went close Hamilton’s header was well saved by Calum Ferrie, but could not get back on level terms and sit behind leaders Dundee United on goal difference after a first league defeat since the end of September.
