A second half penalty was enough to separate the Saints from their Russian first division opposition in today's friendly which marked the end of the four-day intensive training session in southern Spain.
It was route one stuff for the Russians. On 60 minutes, a long kick out was mis-headed by Darragh Maguire and with Stephen Quigley subsequently finding himself trying to mark two players he bundled over one player in the box for the Spanish referee to award the Russian's second penalty of the match. This time they made no mistake from the spot.
