A review of Wednesday night's action in the Scottish Premiership, including St Johnstone's 1-0 win at Dundee United.

A howler from Dundee United goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierzniak presented Stevie May with his 22nd goal of the season as St Johnstone won 1-0 at Tannadice.

Cierzniak let May's speculative shot slip through his hands and allowed Saints to consolidate sixth place in the Scottish Premiership as United's five-match winning run came to an end.

Managers Jackie McNamara and Tommy Wright were both sent to the stand as United complained over several decisions from referee Crawford Allan as they searched in vain for an equaliser, notably appeals for a penalty after substitute Farid El Alagui went down.

Inverness warmed up for Sunday's Scottish League Cup final against Aberdeen with a hard-fought 0-0 draw against Hibernian in the Highland capital.

Chances were at a premium in a Scottish Premiership game that only very rarely flickered into life at either end.

The result, however, was enough to move Caley Thistle up to fourth in the table, while Hibernian remain in seventh, four points behind St Johnstone.
