St Johnstone manager Derek McInnes was happy to pick up a point away from home as his side struggled at St Mirren.
"We weren't at our best by any stretch of the imagination," admitted McInnes after the 0-0 draw.
"When you come away from home and you don't play as well as you can you have to depend on other characteristics.
"I thought we had those in abundance today and were worthy of our point, no doubt. The frustration for us is that we didn't do more to pressure them."
The goalless draw stretches St Johnstone's unbeaten run against St Mirren to 14 games.
"St Mirren were dominant in the first half and I was a bit disappointed with our organisation in the first half," added McInnes.
"I thought we allowed them to enjoy too much possession, but in saying that our goalkeeper hasn't had a save to make.
"A lot of their play was in front of us and we were just frustrated that when we did win the ball we didn't get at them.
"The second half was much more even, discipline and organisation wise, we kept the ball better and thought we created just as many opportunities but not as many as I thought we would do as we didn't get (Francisco) Sandaza and (Cillian) Sheridan one v one against their centre-halves as much as I thought we would do."
