Jack Brydon, Allan Delferrière, Emmanuel Johnson – FC Edinburgh

Brydon returned from injury to play the full 90 minutes at centre-back with Delferrière in midfield. But a Queen of the South side inspired by former Hibs kid Ruari Paton led 4-0 until a late Ryan Shanley consolation from the penalty spot.

Johnson was an unused sub. FC Edinburgh return to Dumfries on Thursday night on Challenge Cup duty.
