St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright is confident that scoring from penalty kicks will not become an enduring problem.
The Perth side have missed from the spot on four occasions so far this season, the latest against Motherwell on Saturday.
But Wright has revealed that there is no shortage of volunteers to take the next one.
And among those to put their hand up are the quartet who have failed to convert – Matty Kennedy (Motherwell), Tony Watt and Liam Craig (St Mirren) and Danny Swanson (Hibs).
“Missing the penalties is just one of those things,” said Wright.
“Sometimes you get runs like that.
“Matty’s wasn’t a bad penalty. It was a good save from the keeper so we just move on from it.
“Obviously a lot has been made of it because of missing two in one match and there have been a few in a short space of time.
“But we are not making a big deal of it and I’m certainly not short of people wanting to take them.
“In fact, the lads who have already missed one are desperate to get another chance.
“We will have a chat about it and see who wants to take the next one, but I won’t be short of people putting their hands up.
“A lot of the time it depends who’s on the pitch anyway but it’s not something I’m unduly concerned about.”
Wright isn’t dwelling on the team’s penalty misses and the defeat to Motherwell, which ended an eight-game unbeaten run, has also been parked.
He reflected: “I felt we did enough in the game to get something from it but we lost two bad goals and that cost us in the end.
“Watching them back, the first one should have been dealt with before the corner because we should have cleared our lines better.
“And for the second one, there’s a fair bit of bad luck involved because it has been miskicked before it’s put in the net.
“But it’s done now, we just have to look forward and get back to being solid again when we play Rangers on Sunday.”
