The Saints couldn't put a dent in Shamrock Rovers' title bid tonight in Richmond Park despite taking the lead.
A Ryan Guy header put the Saints in front after only two minutes and the Saints maintained that lead until right before half-time.
Gary Twigg equalised for Rovers before the break before second half goals from Thomas Stewart and Billy Dennehy gave them the victory.
