The win allowed Saints to leapfrog their hosts into fourth spot in the SPL table, with Rowan Vine netting a brace before the break, with Patrick Cregg adding a third on 58.

Leigh Griffiths pulled a goal back nine minutes from time but by then it was too little, too late for the Edinburgh side.

And manager Lomas said: "We really enjoyed our European adventure (last summer in Europa League qualifying) and we would love to get back there but it's so tight this year and we've got a lot of tough games.

"But I did say to the lads that we've got eight games and that's our cup run.

"What can we do? Treat each game as a cup final and see where it takes us."

As for the victory, he added: "It was very good from start to finish.

"We've had a few games this season where we have had good performances and sometimes haven't got what we deserved.

"But I thought we thoroughly deserved this win and if it had been by two or three more, there probably couldn't have been much complaint."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
