Steve Lomas: The Saints boss points the way into Europe

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."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
