Manager Ray McKinnon was absolutely delighted as a 2-1 victory over St Mirren took his side to the top of the table.

First-half goals from Scott Fraser and Simon Murray soon turned it around after the hosts had conceded for the first time in more than ten hours of football.

The Tangerines are now unbeaten in fourteen games in all competitions and a couple of points clear in the Championship following Hibernian being held to a 1-1 draw by Raith Rovers.

“I’m absolutely delighted with the win even though we made it harder for ourselves than we needed to,” McKinnon admitted to BBC Scotland. “It was unfortunate for Cammy Bell that he didn’t get that club record but I was delighted the way the team responded to going behind to get the win.

“The run we have been on and their attitude to win from my players has been tremendous and it is always good to be sitting top of the league,” he added. “We are still looking to strengthen up front though. It is important that we bring one more player in but it is going to be an enjoyable Christmas for us now.”
