St Johnstone 2-1 Ross County


St Johnstone moved four points clear at the top of Division One with a workmanlike victory over Ross County that should have been more comfortable.

Martin Hardie had already squandered a chance, as had Steven Milne, before heading home Liam Craig's corner in first-half injury time.

Substitute Collin Samuel met a superb Paul Sheerin cross to increase the lead after 81 minutes.

Mark McCulloch got on the end of a ball palmed away by Alan Main to reply.
