‘Time to look forward’ according to St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright

St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright has insisted that the Perth team have to “look forward” as they seek to end a six-game run without scoring against Hibs on Saturday.

The Perth boss admitted that his players had endured a “rough time” in recent weeks but his faith in them is as strong as ever.

“You have to look back and learn which is what we’ve done,” said Wright. “But it’s time to look forward now.

“We are only four points off Motherwell.

“It has been a rough time lately but we’re all positive.

“It has been a tough schedule, we have played a lot of the top teams and we haven’t picked up the points we’re capable of.

“It hasn’t been nice but we are all very much together, my belief in the players is the same – I still believe in them strongly.”

Saints will be seeking to strengthen up front in January but Wright stressed that responsibility for getting the goals flowing again doesn’t rest only with the forwards.

He said: “When a team is not scoring goals that is obviously an area you have to look at, but it’s creating as well from wide areas and midfield.

“So everyone has to look to help the strikers.”

Meanwhile, Wright is hopeful that injured left-back Brian Easton will be back for a busy December.

He said: “Brian is going to be out for another four weeks, which isn’t as long as we thought it could be.

“The good thing is we have a break because Motherwell are in the cup final so he’s not going to miss that much football.

“After Saturday we don’t have a game until December, which is going to be a very busy month so hopefully we’ll have him back for that.”

Wright added: “Michael O’Halloran, Chris Millar and Murray Davidson will return to training this week but Stefan Scougall won’t because he suffered a muscle injury in training.

“He will be about a week to 10 days from when he did it so he won’t be available for Hibs this weekend.”
