'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Lennon wanted more protection

St Mirren boss Danny Lennon reckons that his busy forward Paul McGowan deserved more protection from the referee during their 1-1 draw with Dundee United at the weekend.

The on loan Celtic man was on the receiving end of a few heavy challenges from the visitors, whose midfielder Morgaro Gomis was finally awarded a yellow card following a number of clashes between the pair.

"You can see the quality that McGowan has got but I was getting frustrated for him because Dundee United obviously did their homework and know the quality he has - but I thought he could have been a wee bit more protected on the day," Lennon told the Paisley Express.

The former Cowdenbeath boss was not too disappointed with the performance of his side, however, despite a late Jon Daly equaliser nicking a well-deserved point for the visitors.

"For the first 25 minutes of the game I thought we did very well and we were bright," he added. "Dundee United then found some rhythm and showed the qualities we know they have. They love to get the ball into the wider areas with Craig Conway, and they were very dangerous at their set- plays.

"They kept getting good quality balls into the box and with that kind of traffic coming something was going to give."
