St Mirren 0-2 St Johnstone

Paul Hartley scored a very early contender for goal of the season to wrap up victory for St Johnstone against St Mirren.

The Perth Saints fired a warning to their promotion rivals with a commanding display, as striker Keigan Parker started the season in style with an opportunist goal after 17 minutes.

The Buddies had their best moment just before half-time, with Paul Rudden forcing goalkeeper Kevin Cuthbert into a fine save from a fierce drive.

Hartley extended their lead with a stunning strike after 53 minutes and Paddy Connolly and Parker were unlucky not to increase the tally before the final whistle.


St Mirren: Roy, Rudden, Kerr, McGowan, Robb, Dow, Gillies, McKenzie, McGinty, Cameron, Ross.

Subs: Guy, Lappin, Broadfoot, Yardley, Robertson.

St Johnstone: Cuthbert, Robertson, McCulloch, McCluskey, Murray, Maxwell, McCann, Reilly, Hartley, Connolly, Parker.

Subs: Dodds, Macdonald, Stevenson, Russell, Main.

Referee: W Young
