David Wotherspoon has backed Tony Watt to get over a Saturday afternoon to forget when St Johnstone face Livingston on Wednesday night.
The St Johnstone striker was denied a goal by a wonder-save from St Mirren keeper Craig Samson at the weekend, missed a sitter and then saw Samson foil him from the penalty spot.
But goals from Wotherspoon and Matty Kennedy ensured that bouncing back in West Lothian will be a lot easier than if points had been dropped.
“You get days like that,” said Wotherspoon.
“He just has to pick himself up and get himself right for Wednesday. It’s a big game.
“He was really unfortunate with his header in the first half – there was nothing wrong with it. It was just a great save.
“In the second half he had a chance that came off his heel but he had the courage to take the penalty. He got it on target but the keeper has saved it again.
“It’s just unfortunate that things didn’t go his way today but he’ll pick himself up and will back himself to score a winner on Wednesday.
“It’s a lot easier to get over things like that when your team wins. You don’t dwell on it. I’m sure Tony will get himself right.”
