Danny Lennon claimed his St Mirren side had done well against a Ross County team who have proved difficult to beat at home.
The main talking point of the game came when Saints' Lee Mair brought down Iain Vigurs on the edge of the area but escaped a red card.
Lennon said: "This is a very difficult venue to come to and they are a very hard-working side. But I thought we matched that and showed a bit of quality in the second half. All that was missing for us was a goal, but our endeavour and commitment couldn't be faulted.
"The final ball was fantastic. We drew a couple of good saves and hit the woodwork. There was absolutely everything bar the end product.
"I am absolutely delighted that we are getting there and, more than that, in the manner that we are getting there. I certainly believe we are starting to see a bit of the old St Mirren coming back in there."
The draw leaves St Mirren in the bottom two, one place and one point behind Ross County.
