Steve Lomas: Three points but little else for him to cheer about

Liam Craig grabbed the only goal on 33 minutes in a dour contest short of excitement and entertainment for the McDiarmid Park faithful.

"Some lost the will to live and I was nearly joining them," Lomas joked. "It certainly wasn't a classic!

"I think the accumulation of games told, I think it was about six games in 21 days.

"It has been a pretty hectic schedule and it's been the same 15 or 16 players who have been going week in, week out."
