To come back from two goals down with just over half an hour to go is a good result.

But, to do it in the driving wind and rain is even better.

Jon Obika struck twice for Jim Goodwin’s St Mirren as they recovered to pick up a vital point against Livingston at the weekend.

The Englishman was delighted to pick up his fourth and fifth goals of the season and reckons it was the sloppy second goal that was the catalyst for the fight back.

"Given the conditions and being 3-1 down, we really had to push ourselves to get back level," Obika said. "It feels like a good point despite not going on to win the game.

"We let in a sloppy goal just before half-time and I feel like that pushed the boys on to spark a comeback.

"Even when their third one went in I thought the boys pushed each other and were not going to lie down.

"For strikers to get the goals and assists is the icing on the cake. You want to deliver not only with your performance but also with goals. It's a good pressure for strikers because you know you're there to score."

Obika has urged his team-mates to use the result to pull further away from the bottom part of the Ladbrokes Premiership table.

This is the 29-year-old’s first campaign in Scotland after spending time with many different teams down south.

But never before has he felt the kind of bond with everyone at a club as he does in Paisley right now.

He continued: "This could be a turning point for us. I said in training in the build up we have to never give up.

"Even when we're four of five down in training the gaffer is always telling us to never give up. I think the boys drew on that and that helped us get back into the game.

"It's the first time I've come to a club where everyone is on the same wavelength, from the management right down to the chefs at the training ground.

"It feels like a family club so you want to do the best for everyone.”
