St Johnstone and Hearts shared the points in their Scottish Premiership tie at McDiarmid Park on Thursday evening, with the match ending in a 2-2 draw.

The home side had been trailing since the 41st minute but eventually forced an equaliser in the 69th minute when defender Liam Gordon conjured up a penalty from thin air.
