Surprisingly, although there was no victory for ALL Jambos through one of the games.

Craig Wighton was on the right track in the televised Championship game for loaner club Dunfermline – which he will definitely join this summer – and made a huge early impact for Pars.

The forward found his way to the net to put Stevie Crawford’s side 2-0 against Dundee after scoring Kevin O’Hara’s opening goal. However Dundee fought back to win 3-2.
