Police Scotland are asking fans attending tonight's Queen of the South match against Hibernian to listen to safety instructions.

Terregles Street will be closed for the duration of the match, due to the increased traffic expected.

Unfortunately at the last match we had difficulties with people simply ignoring instructions being given, particularly around health and safety, so please if you're given instructions by stewards and or police officers go with what they're telling you to do."

– Chief Inspector David McCallum
