St Johnstone boss Callum Davidson couldn’t find fault in the effort his team put into their game against Hamilton on Wednesday. What he could find fault in though was his player’s finishing, as the Perth side passed up a host of chances and were forced to settle for a goalless draw.

Davidson felt his side dominated the game and played more to his half-time instructions in the second-half. However, the winning goal still eluded them.

“We dominated the game”

“We dominated the game. The attitude of the players was terrific. We created enough chances to win maybe two or three games. But we don’t take them, and ultimately we come away with a draw” he said.

“First-half probably critical we didn’t get shots off early enough, we tried to walk it into the net. Second-half we did what I asked, another day we’d have won the game comfortably” Davidson went on.

Davidson was disappointed that the team didn’t cause more problems for Hamilton’s goalkeeper Kyle Gourlay. But he was pleased to see that chances were created.

“Put him under more pressure”

“I think we had 28 shots during the game, but we had very few on target. A lot of them were near misses, so I think we could have tested the goalie a bit more. Maybe put him under more pressure.

“I think players are getting there. I’d be worried if the players weren’t getting into positions to get the chances. But they are, and just keep plugging away at that” he concluded.

St Johnstone are in next in action on Saturday when they face a trip to Ross County, who will be full of confidence after a 2-0 win over Hibernian.
