Gregory Tade, Rowan Vine and Dave Mackay netted for Saints, but Lomas was impressed with the recovery from his charges after a mistake from Callum Davidson allowed Josh Magennis to set up the leveller.

Lomas said: "It was a great win and well deserved. The lads responded very well and I thought it was a comfortable win.

"Gregory did so well with the opener because he had just missed a chance. He could have been forgiven for snatching at the second chance but he was very composed.

"We looked pretty comfortable but then a little slip from Callum and Magennis got past him and they got a goal just before half-time.

"That could have caused a problem psychologically but the boys stuck to their task. To get two goals in two minutes was brilliant and we could have got more.

"It has been our Achilles heel all season but in key periods we were ruthless in front of goal."
