Matty Kennedy admits St Johnstone’s sinners are out to atone for a 3-0 Fir Park loss which wrecked their top-six ambitions.
The Perth club, like Motherwell, narrowly missed out on making the cut but the former Cardiff City winger insists Tommy Wright’s men are determined to reward their fans with a win to mark their final home game of the season.
“There’s definitely something to play for with us and Motherwell fighting for seventh place,” said Kennedy.
“The boys have talked about it in the dressing room and we want to make sure we hold onto that spot.
“I’m the type that wants to be the best I can be in every game I play and I believe I can beat any full-back I am up against.
“I certainly don’t want to be losing the last two games against Motherwell and Hamilton.
“And we want to put in a better performance than the last one when we lost 3-0 at their place.”
Kennedy warned Saints will have to rein-in Rangers-bound winger Jake Hastie and dangerman David Turnbull.
“I was impressed with Hastie and Turnbull when I played against them,” said Kennedy (24).
“Turnbull carries a real goal threat from midfield and Hastie likes to get on the ball and take players on.
“They might be young but they are doing the business.
“We will have to watch them both but we have been bringing through good young players here as well.
“Liam Gordon and Jason Kerr have already formed a good defensive partnership.
“Jason is probably better on the ball while Gordy is better in the air.
“They played together when they were younger and they are a good combination.
“Gordy hasn’t had as much game time as he deserved but Joe Shaughnessy has been captain and just so consistent for us.
“It’s good for the future of the club that they have such a good partnership.
“I have also been impressed with Callum Hendry up front and Chris Kane has been getting goals.
“So we have been bringing through younger players of our own.”
