St Mirren   1 - 1   St Johnstone

Michael Higdon scores for St Mirren
Michael Higdon heads home St Mirren's equaliser

Michael Higdon headed his fourth goal of the season to earn St Mirren a point against St Johnstone.

The visitors led at half-time courtesy of Dave Mackay's first goal for the club and St Mirren initially struggled to get back in the game.

However, a double substitution sparked more life into the hosts.

One of the introductions, on-loan Celtic player Graham Carey, set up the 71st-minute equaliser with a curling free-kick into the box.

Both defences were on top in the opening quarter with neither side being able to capitalise on periods of possession.

Liam Craig forced the first save with another 25-yard strike which Paul Gallacher pushed over, but the visitors scored from the resulting 33rd-minute corner.

Ross cleared Peter MacDonald's hooked effort off the line after Michael Duberry had headed the ball down, but Mackay rattled home the rebound from eight yards.

The Perth side chased a second and Gallacher held MacDonald's header from a Danny Grainger cross.

The St Mirren goalkeeper was soon beaten to a Filipe Morais cross by Steven Milne but the striker's close-range header bounced off the crossbar.

Smith comfortably held Ross's long-range volley as the visitors held their lead until the break.

St Mirren pressed but made little headway and Mackay came close to his second when his header drifted just wide from Craig's cross.

Billy Mehmet's strength against Duberry set up a half-chance for his strike partner Higdon, but the former Falkirk man's 20-yard effort was weak and straight at Smith.

Gus MacPherson made a double switch on the hour mark, with Craig Dargo coming on for O'Donnell and Carey replacing David Barron at wing-back. Mehmet dropped into midfield to accommodate Dargo's arrival.

Milne sliced wide after latching onto MacDonald's flick-on before St Mirren carved out their best chance so far in the 65th minute.

Higdon laid the ball off after Dargo had helped on Carey's cross but Andy Dorman shot wide from 10 yards.

Mehmet saw a shot on the run deflect wide before St Mirren's pressure paid off in the 71st minute when Higdon guided Carey's left-wing free-kick into the corner of the net.

Morais was replaced by Paul Sheerin, whose first touch was a first-time volley that had Gallacher scrambling to hold. Another Perth substitute, Cillian Sheridan, had a shooting chance after good work from Jody Morris but he scuffed his effort from 25 yards.

In an open finale, Dorman headed across the face of goal from Ross's cross and MacDonald and Morris both just failed to convert in the six-yard box for the visitors.


St Johnstone manager Derek McInnes: "We were the better side in the first half. In the second half St Mirren had more of the game.

"There was a 15-minute period when we were forced deeper - we could have lost the game then.

"But I was delighted that we picked the game up again. In the scheme of things, I think a draw is a fair result.

"Dave Mackay is a very good user of the ball. He has been a great signing for us. He has done so well. I think he has played every minute of every game. He is a determined player.

"I think he was wasting too much of his career in the First Division. I always felt he had the quality to be playing here and he has shown that in abundance this season.

"Today was very competitive and it showed what is at stake for both teams."
