St Johnstone are facing up to a mini injury crisis ahead of the visit of Kilmarnock at the weekend.
Murray Davidson could be out for several weeks, with three other players concerns for the McDiarmid Park match.
And, as well as the doubts over Davidson, Keith Watson, Danny Swanson and Graham Cummins, Wright will have to cope with the suspension of Liam Craig.
“We have a few injury concerns on our plate,” Wright reported.
“Graham Cummins was feeling his thigh and could be out for the Kilmarnock game as well as Danny (knee ligament problem).
“Murray hurt his thigh early on and it doesn’t look too good. We are probably going to get him scanned. The initial assessment suggests he will be out for a few weeks.
“Keith felt his hamstring after the game and it would be disappointing if he was out of the Killie game, especially as I thought he was outstanding after coming on for Murray. He had warmed up but maybe it is down to how quickly we had to make the substitution.
“But we have dealt with injuries before and it was a great result at Ross County missing players like Danny, Graham and Paul Paton, who was suspended. That shows the depth of the squad.
“Liam is suspended this weekend but Pates will come back in.”
Wright appreciates the significance of a win against one of their top six rivals in the Highlands, but post-Ross County he is also sticking to the script of not taking fifth or sixth place for granted.
“The win has taken us three points closer to where we want to be,” he said. “It was a huge win for us coming on the back of the cup defeat.
“I know people think the top five is done and dusted. It is all I hear. But we don’t have enough points yet to be in that position. We can’t relax or become complacent.
“It was an excellent team performance and even though we had the rough end of the stick at times with decisions we got the win.
“It keeps the gap with the teams below us and at this stage of the season it’s great to be so close to Hearts and Rangers, two clubs with budgets probably three and nine times our own.
“We are in a good position tucked in behind them.”
There had been a bit of dubiety in the stadium about the identity of the first Saints goalscorer against County but TV pictures confirmed this wasn’t one Steven MacLean could add to his tally for the season.
Wright joked: “He is a typical striker, they just claim everything.
“Macca was outstanding again for us, he is our best finisher and he showed his all-round ability. But he wasn’t even the closest Saints player to the goal. There’s no way he’s getting it. It was an own goal, no question about it.”
