ST MIRREN manager Oran Kearney lavished praise on Adam Hammill after watching him score a wonder goal from inside his own half in last night's 2-2 draw at Hibernian.

Hammill caught out Hibs goalkeeper Adam Bogdan with an incredible strike from 50 yards after just six minutes but Saints still had to settle for a share of the spoils in the Ladbrokes Premiership clash.

Oli Shaw levelled for the hosts in the second half before Paul McGinn's header restored St Mirren's narrow lead.

But the Paisley outfit's hopes of picking up only their third league win of the season were dashed when Ryan Porteous headed in Stevie Mallan's free-kick in the 72nd minute.

Despite being frustrated at not picking up all three points, Kearney was quick to single out Hammill, who scored a 40-yard goal against Hearts just 11 days earlier.

He said: "It's like deja vu from a couple of weeks ago – the same again. He gets his head up and I said the same thing two weeks ago.

"It's one thing to see it, another to execute it – and this one is from even further out. It's a great strike.

"Adam would attempt those in training from time to time and get a bit of stick. He won't get any now."

Hibs assistant head coach Garry Parker admitted too many of the Easter Road players are under-performing as the Leith side's winless run increased to seven games.

He said: "It's just frustrating. They score a wonder goal, you've got to accept that, but at 1-1 I thought we'd go on to win the game.

"Then we give the free-kick away, don't pick up the men – we've given that goal away.

"It's frustration. What do you do? Some people are not turning up and not performing for us. They know who they are.

"The players know themselves when they step over that line that it's up to them. They can turn it around."
