Both sides created opportunities to find the net on Saturday, the home side seeing Chris Kane thwarted by James Hill.

Shortly afterwards, Town won a free-kick with Jordan Rossiter intercepting the attempted clearance before seeing his shot blocked.

Rossiter then combined with Jay Matete and Harrison Biggins to find Max Clark, whose cross was sent wide by Ged Garner.

St Johnstone came close to opening the scoring midway through the half when they were awarded a free-kick 20 yards from goal.

David Wotherspoon’s effort hit the side-netting of Alex Cairns’ goal, even if a few supporters thought it had beaten the keeper.

Three minutes later and Wotherspoon dispossessed Matete before firing high and wide from distance.

Liam Craig saw an effort blocked by the Town defence, while Biggins had a shot deflected behind before the first half drew to a close.

The second period began slowly, though the hosts did see substitute Murray Davidson’s attempt easily held by Cairns.

Another replacement, Michael O’Halloran, saw his cross blocked by Tom Clarke before play switched to the other end.

This time, Biggins’ attempted through ball for Max McMillan was overhit slightly and collected by keeper Zander Clark.

Then, after Town had made a number of changes late on, they had one last chance to open the scoring.

Paddy Lane worked his way down the left-hand side before crossing into the box but McMillan couldn’t quite make contact with the ball.
