for when he first put pen to paper in Perth.
But he will continue to support his team-mates who have pieced together a productive spell of form in the Premiership to sit sixth.
Wright was present as Saints returned from the short winter break at the beginning of this week.
“I watched the Rangers game on the TV and found ways to watch the St Mirren and Dundee games as well,” he explained to the PA.
“In the Rangers game I couldn’t see us losing. We were dealing with everything they threw at us.
“After the Rangers loss it was great to win the two games going into the break. We’re in a really good place.
“On the penalty front I was up next. That was quite annoying as well. There’s not many of us left!
“Now I’m back in I’ll be going to pretty much all the games.
“It’s hard to single out players in our team. The reason we’re doing so well is because of the strength of the team from front to back.
“Obviously the likes of Tony Watt and Matty Kennedy have already been down south and performed well down there.
“Zander has been brilliant in goal. The rest of the back four have been brilliant as well.
“I didn’t know much about Jason Kerr but he’s been really impressive at such a young age.
“Richard Foster was great for me on my side of the pitch and Scott Tanser has got better and better with every game.
“We played for teams who played against each other in England but we can’t be sure whether we were on the same pitch.”
Two players didn’t return to training this week – striker Greg Hurst and midfielder Tristan Nydam.
Hurst has had his contract terminated by mutual consent while Nydam returns to parent club Ipswich Town.
McDiarmid Park manager Tommy Wright felt that 21-year-old Hurst needed to be playing more first team football.
He joined Saints from Stirling Albion back in 2015 and has since had loan spells with East Fife, Forfar Athletic and Berwick Rangers.
Boss Wright wished Hurst well, saying: “I’d like to thank Greg for his hard work and endeavour during his time here.
“However I feel that at this stage of his career he needs to be playing regular first-team football.
“I’m sure Greg can achieve that with another club and we wish him all the best in the future.” Nydam, meanwhile, has returned to the English Championship after his loan spell in Perth.
The Zimbabwe-born England under-19 international joined in the summer and went on to make five appearances.
His only start came against Hibernian at the beginning of November, a game Saints won 1-0 and one where Nydam struck the crossbar.
“I’d like to thank Tristan for all of his hard work during his loan spell at the club,” Wright said. “Due to a lack of first-team opportunities we feel it’s best for him to return to his parent club.
“Everybody at the club would like to wish Tristan all the very best for his career in the future.” Drey had worked up a great relationship with his team-mates
