Callum Davidson knows his side’s home form is key this season as they look to add to their two Premiership wins already.
The Perth team played a goalless draw with Ross County where both teams had chances to win the game within the first 10 minutes. Stevie May rattled the post for the home side before William Akio – who was a threat throughout – hit the crossbar moments later.
David Cancola had a shot from range held by the keeper in the second half after Andy Considine registered a first-half header, before Nicky Clark closed in on the follow-up.
Saints boss Davidson knows home form is key, as is how they look to play in front of their home crowd.
He said: “I think the form at home has improved, we’ve tweaked the tactics a bit and tried to be a bit more attacking.
“We play with wingers and wingers and also play three up front. We try to be a bit more attacking at home and cause more problems.
“Home form is key for us to be successful this season. There were a lot of positives there, especially the last two home games.
“We have other matches to come where we can get points. We will get everyone fit and healthy and we will have a very strong squad to choose from.
There were a handful of cries for a St Johnstone penalty when Nicky Clark was seemingly brought down in the box, but Davidson wasn’t too convinced his side should have been kicked.
“I don’t know,” he added. “I haven’t really seen him.
“Again, I thought we got back into the game in the last 15-20 minutes.
“As a manager, I’m happy to see replacements coming in and making an impact.”
Ross County manager Malky Mackay has praised his young squad as they continue their break-in process.
He said: “People take Scottish football at their peril – it’s a tough league where no quarterbacks are given or asked for and the teams are well organised, well trained and fit.
“It’s a physical game and everyone has to get to that speed, which they are.
“We got Kazeem [Olaigbe] hit the bar and [Owura] Edwards had a good shot down the left after entering.
“These are guys who are starting in the division but they have threats. The backbone of my team was excellent.
