Callum Davidson is keen to make one more signing before the transfer window closes.
The St Johnstone manager will, however, probably have to free up a space in his squad to do it.
Craig Bryson became Saints’ latest recruit at the end of last week, joining Millwall loan duo Danny McNamara and Tanto Olaofe and veteran winger Craig Conway, who were snapped up in pre-season.
Davidson would still like to complete a further deal, with the attacking part of his squad the obvious area needing strengthened given the lack of goals scored by the McDiarmid Park side so far this season.
“Hopefully there is scope for bringing in one more player and it would be stupid not to keep looking,” said the Perth boss.
“There might have to be a bit of movement to get one in.”
Meanwhile, Bryson’s “flexibility” will be a big asset for Saints this season, according to Davidson.
The former Aberdeen man made a name for himself with Derby County as a box-to-box midfielder but there is much more to his game than that.
“Craig brings experience and quality and his energy levels are incredible,” said Davidson.
“He also gives me options with systems.
“Craig has probably adapted his game a bit. He can sit or press and get forward, like Ali McCann.
“So he offers us all-round flexibility.
“He is a wee bit short of full fitness just now so we will work on that.
“We have to build him up and make sure he’s ready.”
Davidson’s belief in his players and the style of football they are producing isn’t on the wane, despite a run of four defeats out of five. They are dominating the ball week in, week out and getting plenty of crosses into the danger area. Now he wants to see greater desire to convert them.
“It was a similar scenario to the Motherwell game and it’s something we have to look at,” he said.
“We have played really well in the last three games but only got the win against St Mirren.
“People can criticise but I am still really positive about what we are doing. We can’t lose that belief.
“Crosses are where you get your goals from and we are getting them in.
“I think only Rangers have got in more this season.
“But we have to be more aggressive getting on the end of them.”
Callum Booth is likely to miss Saturday’s trip to Livingston.
“He has had an Achilles problem,” said Davidson. “We are trying to get to the bottom of it.
“Saturday will come too soon for him but hopefully he isn’t far away now.
“He was playing through a lot of pain so all credit to him. But we have a lot of games coming up and we have to make sure he is right and ready to go again.”
