Davidson frustrated after St Johnstone held to a draw

Wed 30 December 2020 | 23:27

St Johnstone boss Callum Davidson believes his side missed two points against Hamilton in a disappointing goalless draw.

Saints

dominated possession and chances but, with

Stevie May

and

Chris Kane

missing opportunities in either half, were frustrated throughout by a resolute

Hamilton

defensive display.

The draw against Hamilton stretched

St Johnston

e’s winless streak to eight games in the

Premiership

and just three points clear of the relegation zone.

Davidson

said: “

After Hamilton’s early chance in the first couple of minutes we dominated the game and the attitude of the players was terrific

.

“I thought we created enough chances to win two or three games but we didn’t take them and, ultimately, we’ve come away with a draw.

“In the first half, I was critical that we didn’t get our shots off early enough; we were trying to walk it into the net, I think.

“But in the second half they did what I asked and on another day we would have won the game comfortably.

“All credit to Hamilton, they came and defended for their lives. They chucked themselves at things and they ensured they made it as difficult as they could.

“After the run we’ve been on, sometimes you go and shut up shop and try to take a point to get back on track.

“But I thought the players tried to win the game, and I’ll take that all day. But it is two points dropped after the way we’ve played.”
