Dundee set themselves up for a League Cup section decider against Aberdeen with victory in farical conditions at Perth.
A thick mist fell on Muirton Park just after half time and the game of continued throughout with neither goal visible from the half way line. A greasy surface made things difficult for both sides at the start and it was inevitable that a mistake brought the first goal.
Kennedy miskicked a harmless looking cross and, with Saints keeper Baines rooted to the spot FERGUSON ran in to head into the net after 12 minutes
Dundee were not allowed to settle and, with Morton showing up well down the left, Saints were by no means out of things.
Conditions reached farcical point 10 minutes into the second half when the thick mist enveloped Muirton. The referee called halt for two minutes to consult with his linesmen, then allowed play to continue. A conditions grew gloomier so did the mood of the spectators who made their feelings known at only seeing half the game.
Out of the gloom Dundee struck again in the 73rd minute just after Rutherford had almost equalised from a Gibson free-kick. The visitor broke down the left and the cross found MCCALL all on his own to shoot past Baines.
FERGUSON scored his second six minutes from time when again, he had all the time in the world to lob over the advancing keeper.
Saints gloom was complete when Stuart Beedie was sent off, apparently for a bad tackle.
