Match Recap

St Johnstone's run of five consecutive victories came to an end after a hard fought draw with Killie. 

There were very few chances as both sides struggled to find a creative spark.

In the first half Tony Watt's backwards header from close range was the best opportunity, but the Saints striker nodded over.

Zander Clarke saved brilliantly from Greg Stewart before ex-Killie youth product, Matty Kennedy's looping shot crashed off the post.

The result means St Johnstone have gone a club record six games without conceding, and remain fifth in the Premiership, a point behind Kilmarnock in fourth.

Comments

Steve Clarke:   “I think we probably shaded the game but the only thing I would say is we didn’t do enough in the final third. We got into good positions but the final ball wasn’t quick enough and we didn’t work the goalkeeper enough.  When we did work him he made a hell of a save, although Tommy will point to the one they hit the post with. I think both teams showed what they’re good at, the disappointment for us is we didn’t make the most of the positions we got into.  What St Johnstone do is they sit in a low block and double up on your dribblers when you have the ball. They defended well, they have six clean sheets in a row now so it shows they are doing something right.”
Killie had a shout for a penalty in the second half when Kris Boyd claimed he was manhandled by Joe Shaughnessy.: “I will leave it to the guys on television to look at it and say we should have had a penalty. From where I was standing it looked as though he was wrestled to the ground and on another day we could have got it. The referees are there to make those decisions and you just have to get on with it, but it was a decent shout.”

Tommy Wright:  “A draw is the correct result, we knew it would be difficult because Kilmarnock are a good side. They set out to frustrate you and they did that.
