Murray Davidson's strike set St Johnstone on the way to victory

St Johnstone lifted themselves up to second place in the Scottish Premier League with a 2-1 victory over Kilmarnock - their fifth consecutive top-flight win for the first time since 1971.

Murray Davidson's scrappy first-half opener was enough to earn the McDiarmid Park outfit another three points in a sequence that was sparked by an unlikely triumph over champions Celtic in mid-September.

With just a minute remaining, the persistent Nigel Hasselbaink - who earlier missed an open net - finally scored the second the Perth men deserved before James Fowler netted a consolation for Kilmarnock.
