Inverness moved up to second in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier League and dented Hearts' top-six hopes with a 3-2 victory at Tynescastle.

The home side were undone by a Gary Warren double which came either side of Billy McKay's 22nd strike of the season.

Yet Hearts had twice equalised through Jason Holt and a deflected Andy Webster strike - but both times handed the initiative back to their Highland visitors within minutes.

Defeat leaves Hearts in 10th place, seven points away from the top half of the league, while Inverness regained second spot with just their second win in eight games.

Motherwell dropped to third after they were brushed aside 3-0 by Ross County, who stretched their unbeaten run in 2013 to eight games.

Ivan Sproule scored his fifth goal in as many starts to give County the lead, while second-half goals from Richard Brittain and Iain Vigurs completed a fine win.

Rowan Vine's scrambled goal early in the second half consolidated St Johnstone's position in the top half of the league standings as they saw of St Mirren 1-0.

Saints are now into fourth, level on 40 points with Motherwell, who drop to third, while St Mirren are eight points adrift of the top six with six games until the split.

Aberdeen were unable to make their chances count as Kilmarnock battled back to earn a 1-1 draw at Rugby Park.

Rory Fallon's brilliant volley gave the Pittodrie side the lead before Paul Heffernan got Kilmarnock back on terms five minutes before half-time.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
