Inverness Caledonian Thistle may only have won once in their last eight games, but St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright needs no reminding that the Perth men will need to be at their best to beat them.
Wright, who watched the last of the Highland side’s three straight defeats at Dundee, said: “This is a tough league and I’m not interested in how their recent form has been.
“I saw them at Dundee and thought they could have won the game.
“We have to look after ourselves and be better than we have been at home. To be better we have to make sure we cut out individual errors. Do that and we give ourselves a platform to get three points. It is very much back to basics and stop giving away cheap goals.”
Goal-scoring certainly hasn’t been a problem for Saints – even when they’ve been losing.
Wright said: “If you had said we would score two at Hearts and the same against Ross County you’d have expected more than a point.
“We have still been scoring goals but we have been built on defending situations well in recent seasons and we haven’t done that.
“We have a good away record but for whatever reason we have let ourselves down at home.
“We know that and the players don’t need me to bang on about it. We haven’t been beaten where we have been outplayed but we have cost ourselves too many points, particularly at home.”
Murray Davidson, Zander Clark and Joe Shaughnessy will all be available.
Wright added: “Chris Millar has been doing well it’s a week too early for him. Keith Watson got 90 minutes in the under-20s and I’m pleased with the progress he is making.”
