  4. Contrasting fortunes

    FT: Dundee 2-0 St Johnstone

    So, a comfortable win for Dundee. The Dens Park side were dominant for most of the match and only looked vulnerable for a short period near the end of the match as St Johnstone started threatening.

    Saints' long wait for a win continues and they slump to sixth in the Scottish Premiership.

  5. FULL-TIME

    Dundee 2-0 St Johnstone

    Kane Hemmings was the difference this evening with both goals as Dundee ran out victors and overtook St Johnstone into fifth place in the Scottish Premiership.

    The Dens Park side are now level on points with Ross County.
