David Wotherspoon completed the scoring with a calm finish 16 minutes from time.

The start was delayed by 10 minutes, but the home club confirmed they had taken the decision to postpone the match for safety reasons.

The Dons conceded an early goal to Ryan O'Leary before going on to dominate the game with three second-half strikes securing a well-deserved win.
Two goals inside 11 minutes at the start of the second half from Gavin Rae and Niall McGinn put them ahead before a last-minute strike from Scott Vernon wrapped up the points for Craig Brown's side.
St Johnstone joined Aberdeen and Celtic on 14 points with a 2-1 win at home to St Mirren, their fourth successive league win.
Nigel Hasselbaink netted the opener against his former side after 22 minutes and Murray Davidson added a second nine minutes before the break.
St Mirren responded three minutes into the second half through Lewis Guy, but they could not find a leveller.
