St Johnstone will be going all out for a win at Pittodrie, manager Tommy Wright has insisted.
The Perth side could lose and still finish fourth in the Premiership, but Wright is not looking upon the Dundee derby derby as a safety net.
“We can only go and try to win the game,” he pointed out.
“When you look at the team we’ve got, with Danny Swanson, Michael O’Halloran and David Wotherspoon in there we’re always going to be looking to go forward.
“We’ll still have to be hard to beat but the Celtic match was a good example, we can do both aspects of the game fairly well.
“Obviously we’ll have to be more clinical in front of goal but we’re confident that will come together.
“So there’s no point us going there, playing for a draw and hoping for a favourable result in the Dundee derby.
“That would make no sense. All we’ll be trying to do is win our game and if we do that then we know we’ve finished fourth.
“We have had a right go in all our games lately so this weekend will be no different.
“No matter what happens it has been a great season for us again.”
A big Saints support is expected to travel north on Sunday.
“The fans are excited about the possibility of another crack at Europe but that will hinge on Sunday and then wait and see what happens,” Wright said.
“I think we’ll take a good crowd up there because those European games have caught the fans’ imagination.
“Aberdeen have dropped the prices and you have to credit them for that, it’s fantastic.
“We have something to play for on the last day of the season and I think our supporters will go up in decent numbers.
“Our away support has been good all season, they give the boys great backing and hopefully it will be the same this weekend.”
