Dundee 2-1 St Johnstone: Analysis

Andrew Petrie, BBC Sport Scotland

When managers talk about turning performances into results, you usually take it with a pinch of salt. This time though, Tony Docherty was spot on.

When Dundee come forward, it's like watching young boys play. Bags of energy and tricks, desperate to beat a man and have a shot - they just need to find that clinical edge.

You wonder if they'd have been able to rescue anything had they not been gifted a penalty. It was just the confidence boost they needed.

Starting McCowan, Tiffoney and Cameron together worked. They created bag loads of chances, but they needed a forward in front of them to finish it off.
