St. Mirren put on dominant display in Paisley against a Ross County that side that has gone a little astray of late, when Lewis Morgan struck past the keeper on the thirty third minute.
County were poor in the first half, but their second half performance could easily have stolen a point from St. Mirren, who should have done more with the possession and chances created.
The match started tamely for both sides, that was until County lost possession and the ball found its way out to Paul McMullen on the wing. McMullen then delivered a nice ball into the penalty area for Jaison McGrath, but was denied by a great save from Staggies keeper Mark Foden.
The big keeper was called into action moments later, when Cameron Howieson headed on goal and Foden got himself down to marshal round the post.
McMullan was creating havoc for St. Mirren out on the wing, but showed some fantastic footwork when he took the ball round five players and then laid on for McGrath, unfortunately his ten yard strike went high. McGrath then turned provider for McMullan, when he cut the ball inside and the shot was hit straight at Foden from twelve yards.
County were finding the going tough, and it got tougher still when Howieson made a great run through the centre before touching outside for Lewis Morgan, who was able to slot past the big County keeper from fifteen yards, 1-0. Minutes later, Morgan then sent a stray shot over the cross bar from ten yards.
County had been notable by their absence in the first half, but almost redeemed themselves on the thirty ninth minute. The ball found its way to defender Stephen Miller twenty five yards from goal, he planted his boot and sent a fizzing strike across the surface of the grass and inches wide of the Buddies goal.
