St Mirren boss praises both teams after Dundee Utd draw

St Mirren boss Danny Lennon praised both his team and opponents Dundee United as they shared four goals in stormy conditions.

"I must give both sets of players a great deal of credit," Lennon told BBC Scotland after the 2-2 draw in Paisley.

"To put on a performance like that with the elements against them was absolutely terrific.

"The 3,800 fans that turned up were the real winners tonight. They had major part to play. I thank them for that."

The Buddies came into Wednesday's match at home just four days after beating Rangers there.

"It was important for us to follow up from a very positive result on Saturday and not to lose if you want to break into that top six," said Lennon.

Lennon's team are close to equalling their points total from last season, and only goal difference is keeping them out of a top-six position in the league.

"That's four games without defeat. We've asked the players for consistency," said Lennon.

"We'd still love to turn some of those draws into wins, but if we carry on like we won't be far away.

"It certainly won't be for lack of trying if we don't get into the top six. We'll continue each game as it comes and we now have to prepare for a very difficult one in the New Year away to Kilmarnock.

"Our football in Scotland's taken a hammering over the years and to put on a show like that tonight in those conditions is absolutely terrific for our game."
