St Johnstone need to make sure they don’t become a side that gets more praise than points, according to Scott Tanser.
The Perth men suffered their fourth 1-0 defeat in five games against Ross County on Saturday and the full-back is aware that a theme is developing that has to be nipped in the bud quickly.
“Hopefully we don’t become the team that plays other teams off the park, concedes and doesn’t get any points,” he said.
“It’s about taking our chances. Me included.
“I’ve hit the bar with my one at the back post that I should have been scoring.
“If we score the first goal in games it will be full steam ahead kind of thing but that’s not happening just now.
“When you go behind you end up chasing the game. The opposition can start time-wasting and sitting in. That’s the way they’ve played it but they’ve won the game at the end of the day.
“We’re playing really well so you can’t fault what we’re doing. We’re working hard and creating chances but we’re conceding soft goals at the moment.
“It’s Livingston next week and we just have to move on to that now.”
