Time for me to go. Thank you for your company this evening.
We finished the first half pretty strong and took that into the second half. Fair play to David [Wotherspoon], he didn't let it [the penalty being saved] affect him
Craig Angus: #bbcsportscot could be a huge, huge goal for Saints. Both the points and the confidence! Hope Kane gets a run of games
We just could not see the game out. A scrappy goal right at the end - a toe-poke. We lacked a little bit of penetration up top. The sending off changed the whole dynamic of the game and our decision-making
Chris Kane's late goal gives St Johnstone victory and moves them up to fifth in the Scottish Premiership.
Saints are now six points clear of tonight's opponents Inverness.
Three minutes of stoppage time being played.
Not long left in Perth.

More frustration for David Wotherspoon as his latest shot goes wide for the hosts.
Lee Ross: #bbcsportscot one of biggest myths in Scottish Football is John Hughes playing silky football. His teams play agricultural football.
Murray Davidson drives wide after Darnell Fisher's initial shot for St Johnstone is blocked.
That was the chance St Johnstone had been waiting for and they will be ruing that saved penalty.
Inverness have to see this game out with 10 men and would surely take a point now.
David Wotherspoon's attempt from 12 yards is saved by Owain Fon Williams and the midfielder cannot do anything with the rebound.
Gary Warren had already been booked and his second yellow card results in a dismissal.

Danny Williams this time cuts out a St Johnstone ball at the vital moment as Steven MacLean tries to release Chris Kane.

Second half started in Perth.
As a united fan living in perth. I've seen a lot of saints as part of my community support work Pre and post O'Halleron. They look lost and miss Mackay too. Terrible form Relegation form in fact.
A scoreless first half in Perth. Inverness had the better efforts, Jordan Roberts' early header and Iain Vigurs' free-kick going close. Saints have struggled to make an impact in attack.
A dangerous ball in from Saints' Simon Lappin forces goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams to turn the ball out, with attacker Chris Kane almost making a connection.
Neither side really taking control of this game. Inverness have had slightly the better possession without really dominating.
Danny Swanson cannot get the ball under control as St Johnstone try to force their way through and Liam Polworth does just enough to clear the danger for Inverness.
Inverness have a free-kick and it is in a good position for the left-footed Iain Vigurs, whose effort is not far away, just over.
Darnell Fisher's powerful shot is always rising but the St Johnstone full-back is applauded by the home crowd.
