St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson has admitted he was left “really disappointed” with his side’s performance in the 0-0 draw with St Mirren yesterday afternoon, calling it a “really poor performance” from his players.

While the sides shared the points, St Mirren really should have come away with the win after dominating for long spells at McDiarmid Park.

Davidson confessed the performance has given him something to look at over the coming days as he reflected on the point on a fairly miserable afternoon in Perth.

“That was a poor game and it was a really poor performance from us,” Davidson said after the final whistle.

“In the first half we didn’t compete well enough, we didn’t attack well enough and we lost the ball on the transition too many times.

“I just felt St Mirren played the conditions better and I was really disappointed in us when we got the ball. I will need to look at that because we gave it away too much and that’s not like us, but we need to do better.”

The result leaves St Johnstone ninth in the Premiership table, five points clear of Dundee and the relegation playoff spot ahead of the Dens Park side taking on Celtic this afternoon.
