MEN WHO MATTER DA D NNYLENN NNON ON PA PAUL U OSE S RG RG O IO DANNY LENNON After four successive defeats to Hearts a draw confirms an improvement in Saints, even though they probably just about deserved the win. Has built a good squad and created great spirit so looking good for top six. 7 PAULO SERGIO HE is getting it from all angles. Trying to keep peace with players while asking them to do it for him on the park. Fans on his back for performances. At least he stopped the rot after back-to-back defeats. 6 VERDICT th t f IT'S rare that fans go away having had such value for money in a scoreless draw. Plenty of entertainment and good football on display with chances at either end. Only thing lacking in the game was elusive goal.

MAN IN BLACK STEVE CONROY had as easy an afternoon as he could have wished for. The man in the middle didn't have any big calls to make and wasn't forced to reach into his pocket for a card once. 7
