The Saints, who currently lie fifth in the SPL table, looked to have done enough with a goal each from Steven MacLean and Dave Mackay either side of John Baird's reply, but a late equaliser from Mark Stewart denied them the win.

And Lomas felt his side should have had the three points sewn up well before Stewart struck after appearing to be in an offside position.

"It's very much two points dropped. It can be a cruel game sometimes," Lomas said.

"We should have killed them off by scoring or through just being professional. Ultimately when you don't kill it off then the other team gets a chance.

"Dundee's goal was a little bit fortuitous but they got it and stuck it away so it's a missed opportunity.

"With the extra man you've got to kill the game off and we didn't do that. We've done it to other teams. There were some good saves from Rab Douglas but ultimately we should have been out of sight."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
