Good result, do have to question the squad’s mental character though.

In the great escape season it was very much down to a never say die attitude. 

That’s twice away from home this year we’ve drew 2-2 after being ahead twice each, this would be a crucial extra 4 points, but not to be...

Hopefully the players take confidence from a well won point into an important part of the season.

Yeah, can't ever remember a result like today's two seasons ago. It's not like we went to, say, Dumbarton, in the February of that season and drew 2-2 after being ahead twice. No, that didn't happen...

Which squad are you referring to W6Saint ? Pre-January or post-January ?

Only Paul McGinn and Anton Ferdinand started both fixtures at Easter Road and today at Aberdeen so I scarcely think it is fair to draw any conclusions about the "squad's" mental character by using these two matches as a guide.

Thought the team defended well at 2-1 Cosgrove took his goal well credit where due. Thought Ryan Flynn had his best game in a saint shirt.. left nothing on the park well done Ryan.

Hence, we’ll see how they react... that squad reacted well to what was thrown at them and stayed up.

Post, obviously. No conclusions being drawn.

Both squads have struggled to keep a lead. You remember the Hibs game at home just a few weeks ago too, yes?

I thought it was a spirited performance too. Will be interested to see how we react and hopefully this is a positive turning point.

Looks like we should have had a 3rd goal when Kyle was played through 1 on 1 to then lob the keeper but was flagged offside

He hasn’t kicked the ball yet in that picture and the defender is rushing out. Anyone got the moment the ball was kicked as a still shot?

Finally some passion and pride, low and behold we get a point at a very difficult place. Were there fresh shots of hope to be seen yesterday or will it just be a false dawn.

Hertz up next will be interesting before we have two winnable home games.

You saying the defender can run about 5 yards before I think it’s popescu kick can follow through and kick the ball

 

But here you go still well onside after the ball is away.

 

James hunter the media guy had posted it so take it he’s seen the replay

Just watched the highlights a bit unlucky. The pass is made our player is on side. But the saints player near the circle touched  the ball with his head when that happens our player is offside. On another day it would have been played on.

I haven’t seen the highlights yet it was James hunter the media guy that posted the pictures maybe he’s missed if Jackson has touched it but is clearly well onside when the ball was kicked.

100% he is onside when the ball is kicked.

Great point yesterday - of course other results went against us but I think we are up for the fight and its not over yet.

Im only just emerging after full on birthday bevy session - so this has eased my hangover!

Hamilton's result went our way. I think they are the more catchable of the two teams above us. I'd take 11th just now as I think we'd have a good chance of winning a play off.

Dundee have got Hibs and Hearts, plus both the bigot brothers in their next four games. Then us at SMP in the fifth game.

We might be able to claw some points back.

Yep - indeed - was disappointed that Dundee won but I guess we are one point closer to overall safety if two points further away from the playoffs.

I can only go on reports as was in pub but it does read like that we are beginning to gel.

Dundee got really lucky yesterday. Played the majority of the game against 10 men. Livvy keeper was poor with Dundee’s first and Livvy had a stonewall penalty turned down at 1-1. Obviously Dundee are on a high results wise, which is the most important factor, but I don’t think they are ahead of us in quality.
We should take a lot of heart from yesterday’s result and performance. McAllister’s goal was tremendous. He looks like he could have a similar impact in games to Morgan or Hammill. Dundee and Accies are still catchable, but I suppose we just need to focus on ourself and take each game as it comes. Yesterday’s result will hopefully be an important platform to build on, but I thought that after the draw with Celtic. Definitely think we are improving though.
