Robinson: We earned the right to play

Tuesday, February 6, 2018

Stephen Robinson felt his side earned the right to play some impressive football after a hard-fought first half performance.

Two second half goals and a dominant showing in the second period ultimately led to another 2-0 home victory, and passage back in to the top six.

But it was all down to the effort and determination shown by his players from the first whistle.

“I thought it was a very good, well-deserved win,” the Northern Irishman said, “in the first half I picked a team that would be physically strong because we know St Johnstone are a hard team to play against.

“But I thought we outfought and out-battled them in the first half. We could have got the ball down and played a bit more though, but we earned the right to do that in the second half.”

He added: “In the second half I thought the performance was terrific. We had a lot of chances and we could have won the game by more, but that’s what we were about in the early parts of the season. We physically dominated teams, then earned the right to play.”
