Danny Lennon: “Every single point now that we pick up is more important”


St Mirren manager, Danny Lennon was happy with his sides point away to Partick Thistle. The Saints gaffer was in buoyant mood and felt that his side had enough decent spells to deserve the point on the night.

He said: “It was an evenly balanced game and we got off to a great start. We had a great opportunity, McGinn knows himself he should have taken the pop when it fell to his right foot.

“After that, you got to give credit to Partick Thistle they came at us and they showed a bit more hunger than us in winning first and second balls. They retained the ball better than us, I thought the boy Doolan, particularly in the first-half stretched the game fantastically well for them.

“They got themselves a goal up, it was a disappointing goal from our point of view, we’ve got three defenders in the box and he peels round the back and to be fair it’s a great finish from the lad. Also the cross comes in far too easily for my liking.”

The Paisley side now find themselves in seventh place with 35 points and are now on a run of four games unbeaten in the SPFL Premiership, Lennon added: “Once again I’ve got to praise the character of the players in terms of the last five or ten minutes of the first-half were we did show our first glimpses of what we are capable off.

“Particularly down this left side, we kept the pressure on, kept the kettle boiling and got a lot of quality balls into the box and that’s where the pressure came from for the penalty incident. I always fancy Kenny in the fine form he’s in so that’s very pleasing.”

Although Danny wasn’t entirely impressed with his side’s first-half performance, he felt his team’s performance in the last 45 more than merited the point.

He continued: “The second-half we started a lot, lot better and again we hit them on the break and on the counter attack and McLean hits the woodwork.

“Tonight wasn’t a game for the purist, I thought both sides cancelled each other out, in a strange way I thought it was a fantastic game, the atmosphere on a Friday night, the camera’s, the rain. It was a real emotional game in terms of it’s going for you or against you.

“Every single point now that we pick up is more important.”
