St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright doesn’t expect to add to his squad before the transfer window shuts.
The Perth boss explained: “There might be one more going out, possibly two, but I don’t anticipate much happening here before the window shuts next week.
“Unless it changes I haven’t been given the green light to go and get anybody. It looks as if we will go with what we have got.”
There probably won’t be any new faces but there will be three familiar ones back in the squad that heads to the Highlands to face Inverness Caledonian Thistle tomorrow.
“Chris Millar, Michael Coulson, Steven Anderson are all back in the squad,” Wright reported.
“Murray Davidson had a knock on his ankle but he’s fine. It’s too early for Keith Watson and Ally Gilchrist who train on Friday.
“Tam Scobbie had his cartilage operation a day early. It went well and he will be back in four to six weeks. Dave Mackay is still a couple of weeks away.”
Wright won’t be lulled into a false sense of security by Caley Thistle’s no points from three games start to the Premiership season.
“I don’t see it as being a more dangerous time to face them or being any easier just because they have lost three games,” he said.
“Arguably it could be harder because they will be determined to get that first win.
“This early in the season I don’t think it will affect their mid set and remember they had a good Betfred Cup.
“I watched them against Partick and there wasn’t much between the teams. Last week everything turned to gold for Hearts.
“I don’t read too much into previous performances and we always get a tough game up there.
“We have got to be good, to make sure we come up with a Motherwell type performance. Do that and we can get a result.”
Two of Wright’s goalkeepers got call-ups for their countries this week – Alan Mannus for Northern Ireland and Mark Hurst for the Scotland under-21s.
With Zander Clark also at the club, they have strength in depth that will be the envy of many of their rivals.
“We are well placed for goalkeepers,” Wright said. “There won’t be many clubs in that position.
“I have always wanted to have two top keepers and in the past we have had that with Mannus and Enckelman and Mannus and Tuffey.
“We have been well off for keepers in recent years and the emergence of Zander and now Mark Hurst has been a real boost for us. They will have big futures in the game.
“Alan had another good season last year and Zander got games towards the end of the campaign. Both have come back absolutely buzzing. They have both been brilliant in training.
“Alan has got the nod and has performed well. He will be wanting to hold on to that first team spot and at the international level put pressure on Michael McGovern with Northern Ireland.
“He has moved up the pecking order with Roy Carroll bowing out so hopefully there will be more opportunities for Alan to get caps.”
Wright added: “One or two clubs have been asking about getting Hurst on loan and something could be done in the next 24 hours. We are hoping to get that over the line.
“He was superb for the under-20s the other night but he needs games. I’m surprised we haven’t had more clubs in for him. He did really well on loan at Elgin last season, with 15 clean sheets.”
