Wright salutes Saints for turnaround
Hamilton Accies 0 St Johnstone 1
ST JOHNSTONE manager Tommy Wright praised his players for recovering from an awful start to the season as they moved to within four points of the top six with a hard-fought victory away to Hamilton.
The Perth side were bottom of the Ladbrokes Premiership table earlier in the month but have put together a four-game unbeaten run to move up to ninth.
Ali McCann’s goal 10 minutes from time was enough to win this lacklustre encounter against Accies. Wright said: “We’re absolutely delighted to get three points and another clean sheet.
“If we can win on Sunday against Ross County, that will finish the year off pretty well.”
