Danny Lennon felt his St Mirren team showed all sides to their game during their 2-2 draw with Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
The Paisley side went ahead thanks to a goal from new signing Lewis Guy before two goals in six minutes had the Highlanders ahead. However the Buddies showed their battling qualities, rescuing a point through a last-minute goal from Darren McGregor with Guy seeing red moments later.
After asking for an end to the ‘gloom and doom’ surrounding Scottish football, the former Cowdenbeath boss was happy with the quality of football on show from both sides.
He said: "We knew Inverness are a strong physical team and they didn't let us get started but it was important and brave of our lads to keep playing and then I thought for the last 25 minutes of the first half we started to find space and took a hold of the game.
"We got good quality into the box, scored a very good goal and Lewis should probably have even scored another one.
"In the second half I must compliment Inverness on the way they changed the game tactically.
"Terry was very positive in his approach and they caused us a lot of problems, although we also caused ourselves a lot of problems.
"They then went ahead but what pleased me is our lads had the desire and courage to roll their sleeves up, go again and get the draw."
Lennon hopes both sets of supporters were encouraged by what they saw on offer over the 90 minutes, adding: "The game had absolutely everything, even the way the rain came down in the second half.
"I think that sets the standard. If I were a season ticket holder then I would feel very entertained.
"I was certainly entertained as the manager of St Mirren and I think it was a terrific advert for Scottish football.
"Let's just hope that continues, not just here but everywhere because that is the only way we are going to get people to fall back in love with the game - to entertain them."
