St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright wants to see his team pick up where they left off at Ibrox when Aberdeen visit McDiarmid Park tomorrow.
Saints were back to their best in the 0-0 draw against Rangers and they will probably have to reach those heights again against another of the Premiership’s big-hitters.
“The performance against Rangers is the type of one you need against good sides and we should take a lot of credit out of the game,” said Wright.
“It will be a tough game against Aberdeen and they have quality throughout their squad.
“We need to make sure we deal with them physically and also deal with their quality.
“We’ve had two good results and two good performances against them this season.
“On the back of a good performance against Rangers, we should really be looking forward to the game – and also be looking forward to getting as many points as quickly as possible to put pressure on the teams around us for top six.”
Wright will be without Zander Clark for the next few weeks but Cammy Bell’s clean sheet last weekend was proof that he is a high quality stand-in.
“That’s why Cammy was brought in,” Wright said. “He has experience and we knew he would deal with it.
“That is no slight on Mark Hurst, because I still think he has a big future.
“But we felt we needed an experienced goalkeeper in. We probably didn’t think we were going to need him but that is football.
“Injuries in football happen but Cammy has come in, was composed against Rangers and showed his experience.”
