Widnes Vikings moved off the bottom of the Super League table with a narrow victory over St Helens.

The scores were level at the break with Theo Fages and Matty Smith crossing for the visitors and Alex Mellor and Patrick Ah Van going over for Widnes.

Saints took the lead when Mark Percival kicked a penalty, after the Vikings had been penalised for offside.

That looked to be the winning score, but the hosts eventually made their pressure tell when Ah Van crashed over.

Replacements: Whitley, Burke, J. Chapelhow, D. Walker.

St Helens: Bailey, Swift, Fleming, Percival, Grace, Fages, Smith, Richards, Lee, Amor, Taia, Wilkin, Thompson.

Replacements: McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Walmsley, Peyroux, Knowles.
