Brian McLean's own goal handed St Johnstone a point at Dundee United

Peter Houston's men looked like winning their first home SPL clash since August when defender Gavin Gunning headed them into the lead inside two minutes, but an own goal from team-mate Brian McLean put paid to that as Steve Lomas' Saints side fought back to ensure a deserved share of the spoils.

Both sides had chances to win the game but neither had the cutting edge in front of goal and will have to pick themselves up in 2013 if they are to bring about a desired improvement.
