MAN BY MAN.
Dusan Pernis 6
Had no chance with Higdon's deadly double. Not at fault in slightest.
Sean Dillon 6
Lost footing for Higdon to capitalise but refused to let his head drop.
Paul Dixon 5
Delivered some decent crosses into the penalty box but his side could have helped him out.
Scott Robertson 5
Battled hard to get things going in midfield but it wasn't to be.
Danny Cadamarteri 5
No lack of effort but could have done with a bit more support.
David Robertson 5
Happy to do the dirty work and rarely shirked a 50-50 challenge.
Morgaro Gomis 5
Playmaker showed some decent touches without ever running show.
Prince Buaben 5
Never gave up trying but became frustrated towards the end.
Garry Kenneth 5
Won most things in the air and pretty solid on the deck.
David Goodwillie 6
Fans' favourite never got the kind of service he thrives on.
Keith Watson 6
Youngster kept things simple and put in some dangerous crosses.
Subs: Jon Daly - had little impact, 2. Ryan Dow - can't be faulted, 2. Johnny Russell - too big an ask, 2. Not used - Banks, Douglas, Shala, Armstrong.
Craig Samson 6
Couldn't have envisaged having such a quite night. Barely tested.
David van Zanten 6
Full-back scrapped for every loose ball and used pace to start attacks.
John Potter 7
Skipper marshalled the troops superbly well from start to finish.
Hugh Murray 4
Forced off in the first-half because of heavy concussion.
Michael Higdon 9
Two super strikes sealed the points. Can't ask for much more.
Darren McGregor 7
Never put a foot wrong and not afraid to simply clear his lines.
Jude Travner 7
Used his able left peg to fire over some decent crosses.
Marc McAusland 7
Took no chances which was a wise policy and served him well.
Gareth Wardlaw 7
Strong running kept the United defence on their toes.
Paul McGowan 7 Set-up clinching second goal and was always a threat.
Patrick Cregg 6
Grafted hard from the word go to win his side's fair share of the ball.
Subs: Sean Lynch - took over from Murray, 5. Kenny McLean - played his part in running down clock, 2. Not used - Mathers, Brady, McCluskey, Mooy, Lamont
