Lennon happy with a point

Danny Lennon was pleased to see his St Mirren side round off a good run of form over the holiday period with a point against Kilmarnock.

Paul McGowen's penalty cancelled out Liam Kelly's opener and ensured Saints, with an eight-point haul from four matches, moved 13 points ahead of Dundee at the foot of the Scottish Premier League.

"I thought it was a terrific game," Lennon said. "I love playing against Kilmarnock because we both love to get the ball down and play.

"It's a wee bit of a boxing match, you have the ball and then we'll have it.

"Our workrate has been key in this wee turning point for us - we were putting Cammy Bell under pressure but we hit a boy on top form."
