Dundee United moved into the top six of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League with a crushing 4-0 victory over Kilmarnock.
Jon Daly netted from the penalty spot 10 minutes into the second half, after Liam Kelly was dismissed for a last-man challenge on Johnny Russell.
Paul Dixon blasted in a superb 30-yard effort to double the hosts' lead and John Rankin then slammed home after 70 minutes. With six minutes remaining Scott Robertson capped an excellent display with the fourth goal.
Daly passed up a glorious opportunity to open the scoring with the first chance of the game after five minutes. Russell combined with Robertson who slipped the ball inside to the striker, but his effort sailed well over.
Russell continued to be the heart of every United attack and he should have done better when he met Dixon's cross at the front post after 30 minutes.
The home side almost took the lead in controversial fashion as Rankin's free-kick, which was intended to be sportingly returned to Cammy Bell, looped just over the bar.
United were handed the perfect opportunity to open the score when Kelly upended Gary Mackay-Steven inside the area after he latched on to Daly's flick-on. Kelly also received his marching orders after referee Craig Thomson deemed that the defender was the last man. Daly stepped up to take the resulting kick and despite diving the right way, the keeper could not keep the ball out.
The home side doubled their advantage just before the hour mark when Dixon's stunning long-range drive left Bell with no chance.
Dixon struck the base of the post as United looked to put the game beyond the reach of their opponents and they eventually stretched their lead to three with 20 minutes remaining. Bell's punch from Willo Flood's corner broke to Rankin and the midfielder slammed the ball high into the net.
Stuart Armstrong was involved in the lead-up to United's fourth goal, chipping a sublime through-pass to Robertson and he made no mistake in firing low beyond Bell.
