THIS wasn’t, in the end, a Greek odyssey to the Perth tragedy for Allan Campbell’s Motherwell, but the Steelmen could still consider themselves a bit lucky to escape McDiamird Park with a point

With guests deprived of their young star due to his induced absence in Athens, it was a match where the drama was found off the pitch rather than on him with Scottish football plunged into yet another debacle reportedly at home in Homer’s epic story

There were fleeting moments of fun, and neither was Mark O’Hara’s beautiful opening game, but it was St Johnstone who was left to denounce what could have been as they failed to make it through. press Stevie May’s equalizer from the start

Unsurprisingly, Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson had only one thing on his mind after the game as he lamented Campbell and Barry Maguire were identified as close contacts as they returned home from service international

« We had named the team and were ready to go, but I was told on a phone call around 11 am from the GM [Alan Burrows] that the two boys [Campbell and Barry Maguire] couldn’t play. » said the Northern Irishman « It’s also a double punishment that they can’t play next week

“I know other clubs found out about it early on Friday so the communication was bad, really bad It must be better than that when you step into an elite environment – allegedly

« I am told that a member of staff tested positive and players were not retested before flying on two flights

« It’s not my problem if it didn’t affect Motherwell, but it’s bad today Allan Campbell is arguably my best player and I’m missing two of my three starters in midfield

« It can be done better I usually don’t try to jump on people because it’s difficult But the communication was a joke »

You wouldn’t have known it was a exhausted Motherwell Eleven when O’Hara completed a wonderful, smooth movement to the right to open the scoring There was a flair of Scottish magic to the exchange, with Stephen O’Donnell and Tony Watt pulling Scott Tanser and Jamie McCart out of position to create a Liam Polworth-shaped hole in the box. His attempt was blocked but O’Hara jumped out to strike past Zander Clark

It was less than 20 minutes but St Johnstone’s disdain was still audible They had been the better team in the opening period, full of verve and vigor in the midfield and eagerly chasing the hesitation of their guests in back

As the Saints fought, visitors had Aaron Chapman to thank when he left his line to block a rampaging Craig Conway and later Devante Cole appeared in his own box to outsmart David Wotherspoon on the turn.

The guests’ resolve finally cracked, just minutes into halftime, when the Canadian winger teasingly pushed the ball between May and Bevis Mugabi and the defender nibbled on the bait just enough to knock the ball down. ‘attacker May got up to kick the kick with aplomb

It looked like the Saints were now well and truly on the move, but a bad fall from Murray Davidson seemed to take some of their momentum away from them. As they scored within minutes of leaving the field on a stretcher, there is no doubt that he was part of the driving force alongside Ali McCann and his energy was lacking in a quieter second period.

The loss of the excellent Conway to an unfortunate fall after the break also didn’t help the Saints charge

They had the best of luck with Jason Kerr and Conway coming close with the headers and were left to wildcat Chris Kane Street in the evening sky with the last kick of the ball for Callum Davidson, however. , the condition of his midfielder was his most pressing concern

« He [Davidson] fell awkwardly and I can’t say much more than that, » Saints boss said « It’s more than a shoulder dislocation but I don’t know me Craig broke the nose

“We started brilliantly and got some good areas We pressed well in the middle of the field and then conceded a counterattack

« It was Ali [McCann] who took the ball and tried to get it right. He did his chores and thought he was excellent. »
