Livi aren't actually playing badly. They've looked quite dangerous going forward.

We've just been better.

Gillespie has made some good saves, we were up against it for 2 minutes after the second.

Gboly made himself available at a couple of throw-ins. We'll soon knock that habit out of him.

Not surprisingly we went off the boil a wee bit after the first 30 mins but what a difference!  Hopefully we can pick up again at the start of the second half and score a few more goals. Some excellent stuff.

I really hope we don't sit back on the 3 goal lead.  We should be looking to increase our lead and provide some more entertainment to compensate for all those games with zero to cheer about.

Part of that will depend on how Livi respond. They will be all out attack this half with nothing to lose.

Pretty cool how we all thought McCormack would turn our results around and it's actually been two of our youths.

FOUR penalties for The h**s this afternoon. Scored three, missed one. Have we been transported back to the 1970's and I didn't notice ???

I think the 2nd half performance is what you'd call "professional". 

Great result, and excellent performance - especially in the 1st half.

I guess, indirectly, that every other bottom 6 team dropped points today.

We are now the same amount of points clear of Hamilton as they have managed to amass all season. It's been a good day.

Time to look up - we're not ending lower than 9th. 

A win on Wednesday should see us in 7th...

We handled the second half well, making sure they didn’t get back into the game easily. We had a couple of breaks but were way more conservative overall, which is probably the professional thing to do. 

Thought Gorrin had a really good game, keeping things calm and collected in the middle and breaking things up. He and Campbell are giving the attacking mids the license to push on.  Hastie, Turnbull and Campbell are players you pay to watch, hopefully we secure hastie for a couple more years soon. I think we need to consider extending Gorrin.

Great to see main with the neat finish at the end of a good move, and I thought that Tait and grimmy were solid.

James Scott is a unit. I’m looking forward to him rag dolling defenders for the rest of the season.
