TOMMY WRIGHT is already looking forward to the midweek visit of Rangers after St Johnstone’s 1-0 win at Kilmarnock last night.
The Perth outfit have now gone four matches unbeaten, even though Rugby Park goal hero Murray Davidson will miss the meeting against the Ibrox side through suspension.
Wright said: “We created a few clear-cut opportunities and should have put the game to bed earlier.
“But we have got to be happy, coming here, difficult conditions, difficult surface, getting a win and a clean sheet. Not many teams have comer here and won recently.
“Rangers are on a great run and I will go to their game against Caley Thistle, but we’ve won, so I can enjoy my turkey dinner. Otherwise it might have gone into the freezer until new year!
“No, it is a game for us to look forward to. Fair play to them and their support they have sold out all their tickets, but is a game we can go into with a lot of confidence.”
It was another frustrating night for the home side, anger which eventually bubbled over when Luke Hendrie was sent off in injury time after two quickfire bookings.
The only goal arrived just minutes before half-time when Davidson was left unmarked from Blair Alston’s corner and his sidefooted finish left Jamie McDonald helpless.
