So... last time I watched us at Perth we were gubbed 5-2 & were pretty clueless on the night.
It was freezing as well. Won’t be making the trip this time (last time it was on my way home from work).

They were no better than stuffy opponents when they broke our hearts at the Vale, so if we are at our best we could get something. However, before I let my hyper optimism get the better of me, I would be delighted with a draw but suspect another narrow defeat, especially if we are missing Halkett & Gallagher

Even at full strength a draw would be good here, we don't seem to get that wee bit of luck on the road this season and if Gallagher and Halkett are out then I really can't see us getting anything.

Holt is maybe playing mind games though, he's done it already this season, just have to wait and see.

Think like most others im not expecting to take anything from this game although like Orco id bite yer hand off for a draw here.Reckon the injuries and suspensions have finally caught up with us.Il never write our lads off but would take something exceptional to get a result against a very good Saints team with a terrific manager in Tommy Wright.I know the boys will give it 100% and i wish them well for tonight Do it Livi!!!

Yeah, me too it was on my birthday as well. My earlier post was in reference to playing Saints though.

Well the legendary back line is intact but we have Sibbald in for Jacobs, Lamie in for Wylde & Erskine in for Menga

It wasn't a classic game as we cancelled each other out most of the night. It was hard fought by both teams and St Johnstone got the rub of the green on the night with their goal.
Couldn't fault any of the players. They all worked hard. Hardie didn't get much of the ball but when he did you could see his skill.
Sibbald slotted in nicely for Keaghan and didn't disgrace himself. Erskine was also decent though he maybe needs a couple more games to properly acquaint himself with the team. In the short time he was on Wylde looked better than he did on Sunday. Tiffoney looked ok too from what I saw.
St Johnstone, like us, are hard to break down but they do have guys up front who look like they can score
Dallas was his usual mystifying self seeing things that weren't there and generally getting too many decisions wrong. Halkett was booked for what was basically a dive by the Saints player.
McDiarmid Park is a pleasant ground to watch a game and the folk are also fine
Just Rangers next. If we don't get anything from that it'll be 4 defeats in a row. Glad we have those points in the bag from the first half of the season

Went as expected really, doesn't make it any less painful to endure though, hate us losing games. It isn't as if our away form is below par, just know the opposition team will stick away some chance in front of goal though, and we'll come away with a hard fought big fat zero.

If we can beat Sevco on Sunday then i'd have taken losing this game for that one, hope Menga will be fit to play, even if he doesn't score he still runs them ragged and gives us an out ball.

Having watched the highlights of last nights game this morning it seems we were unfortunate not to take some thing from the game.Couple of really good efforts on goal only to find their keeper inspired to make two good saves.Think Liam will be dissapointed with the way the goal came about but he did make some good stops himself.We knew Perth would be a tough place to go to at the best of times and they have a very good side but part of me feels it may have been an opportunity lost here.However having said that we are still 17 points clear of second bottom and still looking good to reach our goal.Yeh Sevco on Sunday who will be wounded,more about that at the weekend.Hardlines Livi.
