It was Saints' first win over United in 13 years and keeps them one point behind third-placed Inverness with two SPL games remaining.

Liam Craig's first-half strike at Tannadice earned them the points in an otherwise dull game, with Lomas still dreaming of Europe.

He said: "We are still in there fighting. We just wanted to take into the last game.

"We have a big game against Celtic next week. We know it will be difficult. There are a few walking wounded in there.

"But it is no coincidence that we had a tremendous away support, they played a big part today. For the players to come out and see 1500 away fans makes a big difference.

"I thought we deserved the three points, especially after the first 15 minutes. Our keeper didn't have a save to make."

Saints midfielder Craig- who has signed a pre-contract with Hibernian - scored on 38 minutes with a fine finish from inside the penalty area.

Craig said: "I want to leave on a high but it (Europa League) is out of our hands, all we can do is keep winning games.

"If Inverness hang on to third place then they deserve it."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
