St Mirren manager Danny Lennon praised the quality on offer at Fir Park after watching his side draw 2-2 with Motherwell.
Michael Higdon headed the home side in front before Conor Newton levelled with a long-range effort.
Lewis Guy looked to have scored the winner only for James McFadden to direct a 25-yard free-kick into the top corner five minutes from time to round off an exciting encounter.
"You could probably dig out the same reports you have done from the last couple of years," said Lennon.
"They are always fixtures I look forward to and once again both sets of players and supporters brought a great deal to the game.
"It was thoroughly entertaining - goalmouth action, quality goals - and football certainly won today again."
