St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin was not happy with his side’s finishing last night despite coming from 2-0 down to rescue a point against Motherwell – and insists his side should have won a game they “completely dominated.”

The Buddies fell behind to Tony Watt’s first-half double before Eamonn Brophy responded with a brace of his own to send the St Mirren fans back to Paisley with a share of the spoils on a miserable night in Lanarkshire.

Goodwin did have some praise for Brophy after he had to retake the penalty for his second goal after the officials judged ‘Well keeper Liam Kelly to have moved off his line too early when he saved Brophy’s original spot-kick.

“I should be happy with a point away from home, especially against a team battling for their lives after three consecutive defeats.

“We knew they’d give a reaction, but I can’t believe we’ve not won to be perfectly honest. When you look at the stats, we have completely dominated that game.

 

“The second half we had so many opportunities to win the game and Kelly makes some good saves.  I think Tait and Kiltie would like to have those chances back as either side of the goalkeeper and those aren’t getting saved.

“All in all I’m really pleased with the character the boys showed.”
