Playing Rangers on a Sunday, Celtic in midweek and the league leaders Hearts the following weekend is no chore, according to St Johnstone skipper Joe Shaughnessy.
Captain Joe Shaughnessy is set to make his first team comeback in the Betfred Cup this afternoon, as manager Tommy Wright faces up to the prospect of two of his centre-backs missing out through injury.
After suffering a badly-cut leg in a bike accident, most people would be content to sit and wait for medical help to arrive.
St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright will carefully weigh up whether to recall skipper Joe Shaughnessy from injury for the Sunday afternoon Premiership clash with Hibs at McDiarmid Park.
Liam Gordon has had to be a very patient Saint.
St Johnstone have suffered a double injury blow, with Joe Shaughnessy facing a race against time to be available for the start of the season and Brian Easton experiencing more problems on the comeback trail.
Jason Kerr has already stablished himself as a key man in the St Johnstone first team.
Joe Shaughnessy believes St Johnstone “owe the home fans” a win against Ross County tomorrow – after saving most of their good work this season for away trips.
The Joe Shaughnessy throw-in has been one of St Johnstone’s biggest attacking weapons in recent games. Probably THE biggest, actually.
There are four teams below them in the Premiership table and they are as close to the top six as they are the relegation position.
