St Johnstone had plenty of the ball against Motherwell – but failure to do anything with it cost them at Fir Park according to Craig Conway.

The Well registered their first win of the season against the Perthshire Saints. Allan Campbell’s driving effort after just four minutes was all it took for Stephen Robinson’s side to claim a big three points.

But for Callum Davidson’s side, it was a frustrating afternoon. They had plenty of possession and chances to punish their hosts but none were taken. Veteran Conway has explained why it’s something they have to work on.

“The game plan was to not give anything away cheaply but we do that after four minutes,” said Conway. “We started slowly and found it hard to get going. We never really got going until the second half.

“We probably got what we deserved even though we could have done. We never worked the keeper enough and we made it easy for him. When they scored I don’t think Elliott had another save to make after that.

“We didn’t take out chances and they sat in and defended well. They were happy to give us possession but we didn’t do much with it. We are creating chances and it was the same against St Mirren.

“But, we are not taking them and that is something we need to work on.
