Another impressive performance to add to the recent collection.
The Saints, to be fair, may have been unsettled by murmurings of a colossal move for Michael O’Halloran from an unnamed club in an unnamed Galaxy. But then again, maybe not.
Mackay-Steven finally looks to be hitting full stride and was involved in everything positive throughout the game. He scored his first of the season before some dreadful defending allowed Saints an equaliser. Jozo, standing with an invisible pole up his backside, left McLean unmarked for a soft goal.
Armstrong restored the lead before half time with a nice volley.
When Mackay-Steven hit his second, it looked like game over but we were dreadful at set-pieces, Gordon flapping about in no man’s land with Ambrose and Simunovic admiring the delivery. And, more often than not, our offensive moves had more passes than a Sevconian on Mastermind, without much end product.
But it was a comfortable win in the end and hopefully the aforementioned former Dundee United duo can kick on and show why they’re the best two men to play those wide roles. High marks again for the whole team, though.
