To dig one out from the ‘Ebook of Final Soccer Cliches’, Saturday’s tussle between St Mirren and Hearts was very a lot a story of two halves.

Stephen Robinson’s males took an early lead due to a Ryan Pressure free-kick, and went in on the break questioning in the event that they’d come to rue a number of missed possibilities to go additional forward.

It actually turned out to be the case after a second half the place Hearts out of the blue remembered easy methods to play soccer.

Saints might be happy that regardless of Hearts taking command of the sport after the break, they have been nonetheless restricted to only a few clear possibilities with solely an errant cross managing to interrupt by means of an in any other case stable defence and elude Trevor Carson. 

The actual concern for the Buddies shifting ahead surrounds the accidents and suspensions that are starting to pile up.

Goalscorer Pressure limping off after lower than 20 minutes might be added to a listing that now consists of, properly, kind of the whole St Mirren backline.

A late VAR-assisted straight pink card for Marcus Fraser solely serves to compound the headache now going through Robinson.

Friday night time’s league go to to Tynecastle – a quirk within the calendar on account of a double postponement – now offers an excellent sterner check at an traditionally sad searching floor.
