The victory at Easter Road allowed Saints to leapfrog their hosts into fourth

Fenlon said: "It was bitterly disappointing to be honest. There was nothing in the game up until the first goal but, after that, we were all over the place and it wasn't good enough.

"But definitely tonight we lacked that little bit of urgency, hunger and desire. They looked like they wanted it a little bit more than us."
