The Frenchman, who hasn’t appeared for the Jambos’ first team since the 1-0 win over Kilmarnock on August 12, headed home Jamie Brandon’s cross to seal victory for the visitors.

He also set up a goal for substitute Anthony McDonald with a superb slide-rule pass.

The Jambos had fallen behind just after half-time to a stunning long-range strike by Scott Allardice.
