Dundee United fell further behind Championship leaders Ayr United as interim boss Laurie Ellis’ side lost out to the Honest Men.
On fire hitman Lawrence Shankland gave the hosts the lead on 21 minutes against a much-changed Tangerines side from last Saturday’s 5-1 home pasting by Ross County.
In the second half, substitute Declan McDaid secured the points with a rifled finish 17 minutes from time to keep Ian McCall’s side at the top of the second-tier – now eight ahead of United.
United travel through to play Partick next week with, surely, a new man in charge.
