“I hate talking about referees, but Joe Shaughnessy headed the ball on to Melamed’s arm, which was in an unnatural position way above his head." he said.

Jim Goodwin

,

St Mirren

's Boss, claimed that the referee made wrong calls in the match against

St. Johnstone

.

He believes that he lost to wrong decisions and said:

“I hate talking about referees, but Joe Shaughnessy headed the ball on to Melamed’s arm, which was in an unnatural position way above his head.

“You’d be screaming for a penalty if that was a defender in the box, so why Steven McLean didn’t give it is beyond me.

“The sending off is another poor decision. The first yellow was borderline, Cammy got plenty on the ball.

“The second one is a mistake. Cammy clearly won the ball but for whatever reason it was deemed another yellow card"

Callum Davidson

, St Johnstone boss, also expressed his idea about 1-0 victory:

 “I thought the first half was a real tight game. Guy had the best chance of the half that he probably should have put away, but apart from that there wasn’t a lot in it.

“I asked the players for a bit more energy at half-time and we got the early goal. Once we did that and they got a man sent off I didn’t think we were good enough. But I’m just delighted to get the win.

“I thought we defended really well and put our bodies on the line as soon as one of their players got into our box.

“The three points are so important.

“When you haven’t won in a while it can sometimes be difficult to get over that line. I didn’t think we were good enough on the ball in the second half and we allowed them to get into certain areas, but I would say we defended very well.”
