Squad rotation will continue to be a big factor for St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson as the run-up to their second semi-final of the season, and hopefully final, begins this weekend.
The strength and adaptability of Davidson’s player pool has been one of the key reasons Saints are still fighting on two fronts at this late stage of the campaign, with European football open to them through league and cup.
And he believes that will remain the case.
“We are looking towards the semi-final now,” said Davidson.
“We made changes to the line-up for the Clyde game in preparation for the back-to-back games against Rangers.
The man of the moment.
What a performance from @Zanderr1 yesterday.

“And we will try to manage the squad again this weekend with the semi in mind.
“I’ve always said it’s a squad game and everyone will be playing their part.
“I have belief in them all anyway so I don’t mind what team I put out. Whoever plays we’ll be capable of doing well.
“It’s about getting game time into people and making sure we are ready for the semi when it comes around.”
