Full squad for boss


ever team I pick I’ve got players who I’ll have faith in.

“I need players who can go at it 100 per centfromth­estartando­therswhoca­nmake animpactof­fthebench.Obviouslyt­hegame could go longer than 90 minutes.”

Saints will be heading into the Hampden tussle in terrific form after brushing aside Motherwell at Fir Park.

Guy Melamed’s double – the first was a stunning hit – and a Jason Kerr strike made for a very comfortabl­e afternoon.

Davidson had made only two changes from the narrow defeat to Celtic the previous week and watched from the sidelines with a smile as his Perth players stepped up to the plate.

It was a performanc­e that had both neat football and guts and determinat­ion. That was pleasing for the manager.

Shortly after the game at Fir Park, he noted:“That was our most complete performanc­e of the season. In the first half we played some really good football in difficult conditions.

“We cut them open and had some great chances to score. Second half it was more about a battle and a fight and the guys responded really well.

“I couldn’t ask for any more and it’s a great selection problem to have.You look at the likes of Callum Booth. He came into the team with Scott Tanser injured and performed to a real high standard.

“Guy Melamed, Liam Craig, there are lots of players there pushing for a start.”
