A poor defensive display from the Jambos watched Declan Gallagher, Sherwin Seedorf and Jermaine Hylton locate the internet for the Steelmen.

Captain Marcus Fraser netted a winner since Ross County beat against St Mirren 2-1 at Dingwall. Ross Laidlaw’s blunder seemed to have cost County success as the free-kick ended in the back of the net in the 72nd minute of Tony Andreu.

The home side had started the scoring 10 minutes earlier when Ross Stewart struck a brilliant volley.
