Danny: I want to see our own kind back.

Byline: DAVID RINALDI

SAINTS boss Danny Lennon last night thanked the Israeli officials for getting their clash with Accies on but insists he wants their clash with Hibs next week to be reffed by a Scottish whistler.

Meir Levi took charge at New Douglas Park and was arguably man of the match in an encounter that failed to get going.

And despite being far from their best Lennon (right) was content with his own side's performance.

He said: "I thought over the piece the officials handled the game well and were confident and dominant in their decisions.

"I'm just thankful they have helped us out or else I wouldn't be here speaking to you.

"My message is I hope to see familiar faces at games next week. And what I would say is that in this day with modern technology let's use it."

Lennon felt the own goal that was chopped off for the Buddies was a bizarre decision.

He added: "At the time I thought it was a perfectly good goal and it's a strange one as the Hamilton player's put it in his own net.

"But over the piece I don't have many qualms. We told the players we didn't want any backchat and we've got one or two individuals who aren't great tacklers and we told them to be careful.

"I had a wee bit of crack with the fourth official Stuart Macaulay who said some things would go for us and some would go against us.

"But a foul in Israel should be the same as a foul in Hamilton.

"We didn't get out the traps and Hamilton put us under immense pressure but the way we defended was admirable.

"The plus points are we've not conceded and we've picked up a point."
