Taking anything from a trip north is always a good result in my view, however we're at the stage of the season when we desperately need to be getting wins. The other teams roundabout us all picked up points, with Kilmarnock beating Motherwell, so our situation isn't any better than it was. It was an improved performance though and hopefully one we can replicate against Motherwell next week.
It was a much changed Saints line-up with goalie Marian Kello injured, Josh Magennis and Marc McAusland dropped and Paul McGowan completely absent. In came Christopher Dilo, Jim Goodwin, Adam Campbell and Gregg Wylde - the latter two making long overdue starts in my view!
The changes seem to have worked early on as went in front through Jason Naismith's second goal of the season. Reports seem to vary between it being a free-kick and a shot, but it went in and that's all that counts.
Caley Thistle drew level after a quarter of an hour threw Ross Draper - although it may have been a Darren McGregor own goal - before Greg Tansey had them in front before the break. However, we didn't buckle and Sean Kelly's first league goal just after the hour mark brought us level.
Our hopes were boosted further when Josh Meekings was sent off for chopping down sub Magennis as he ran through on goal. We couldn't make our advantage count - Dean Brill denying Kenny McLean with a superb save - so have to make do with a point.
