Scougall form pleases Wright

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

ST JOHN­STONE boss Tommy Wright is pleased with the form be­ing shown by mid­field man Ste­fan Scougall — and he feels there is more to come.

As the hours ticked away to to­mor­row’s away match against Dundee, Tommy said: “Ste­fan has been good for us since he came in dur­ing the close sea­son.

“He can hurt the op­po­si­tion but we have to get him on the ball in the for­ward ar­eas of the park more.

“Ste­fan has re­ally been ex­cel­lent and can con­tinue to be so.

“The same ap­plies to Michael O’Halloran.

“He’s been great for us and deadly in front of goal and we have to get the ball.”

Ill­ness forced Mur­ray David­son off at half-time in last Satur­day’s 1-1 home di­vide against Hibs but he is now back in train­ing.

If he comes through to­day’s ses­sion and shows no re­ac­tion, Saints will make a de­ci­sion on whether to play him or not.

Saints have 11 points from five games and Dundee have only one point but Tommy be­lieves the Dens men are a bet­ter team than t heir points tally sug­gests.

He com­mented: “I don’t read any­thing i nto their league po­si­tion as they have been cre­at­ing chances.

“I have no doubt this will be a very dif­fi­cult game for us.

“With three wins and two draws from our five league games, we will go to Dens with con­fi­dence but we will be cau­tious and give Dundee re­spect.

“They beat us 3-0 there on Hog­manay. We didn’t take our chances and they took theirs.

“My play­ers must take their chances to­mor­row and make sure they shut the door at the back.”
