Inverness Caledonian Thistle won at Dundee United to move out of the bottom two of the Championship.

Caley Thistle threatened twice through John Baird early on before Iain Vigurs scored the opener with a deflected strike from the edge of the box.

Mark Ridgers immediately denied Scott McDonald an equaliser and Connor Bell tapped in a second for the visitors.

United goalkeeper Harry Lewis denied Carl Tremarco, while Ridgers tipped over James Keatings' free-kick.

After losing Fraser Fyvie through injury, Billy King's strike, deflected wide for a corner, was the closest United came to a consolation goal as the visitors comfortably closed out the win.
