St Pat's picked up all three points on the road tonight following a 1-0 win against Cork City.
Christy Fagan's second-half goal was enough to give the Saints their first win in the league since June 29th.
The Saints have closed the gap on the top three, although Shamrock Rovers and Sligo are playing out the last few minutes of their league match in Tallaght.
