Anderson happy with a point
Steven Anderson admits St Johnstone were fortunate to claim a point from their 0-0 draw against Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership.
Saints returned to Perth with a share of the spoils just a few days after suffering a tough Europa League qualifying exit on penalties to FC Minsk.
Defender Anderson felt he could have earned his side a penalty after claiming his shirt was tugged by Kris Boyd but had no real complaints about the result at Rugby Park.
He said: "I thought it was definitely a penalty but we can't complain - we were lucky to get the point to be honest.
"Our goalkeeper had a couple of good saves and they had a couple of shots that hit the post and the bar.
"We got a point out of the game and that's really the only positive we can take."
Anderson felt Saints' European exertions may have played a part against Killie but was reluctant to use their continental campaign as an excuse for failing to win the game.
He said: "They have been hard games, playing Rosenborg and then having extra-time the other night but the boys have got to deal with it.
"Professional football players have got to be fit enough.
"But the boys did feel a bit leggy because it's hard to play a lot of games in a short space of time at this stage of the season.
"It gives us a head start on other teams I suppose."
