Conor Newton scored for the second successive match as St. Mirren continued their recent revival against Ross County on Sunday.
Kenny McLean gave the Buddies a first half lead before Newton - who also netted against Partick Thistle eight days earlier - added the second with a right-footed finish in the 51st minute.
Steve Saunders pulled one back but Ross County then had two men sent off as Danny Lennon's side claimed all three points to climb to eighth.
It was an otherwise quiet weekend for Newcastle's loan stars, with Michael Richardson and Romain Amalfitano playing no part in respective victories for Accrington Stanley and Dijon.
