Match Preview

Logan pondering staying with Dons Aberdeen defender Shaleum Logan admits he could yet prolong his Granite City stint beyond the summer. The 25-year-old joined Derek McInnes' side on loan from Brentford in January, but his Griffin Park deal expires at the end of the season. And the Englishman is keen to hold talks with Dons boss Derek McInnes before making a final decision on his future. However, spending another year away from his Manchester-based family could yet sway his decision in favour of a return south. Logan, who landed a League Cup winners' medal after just seven games for Aberdeen, told RedTV: "I have definitely thought about staying here beyond the summer. "Derek and I will sit down at the end of the season and decide what happens. "I have really enjoyed my time here so far - it's been one of the best spells of my career in football with winning the cup and playing at places like Celtic Park, Ibrox and even Hearts. "Did I think I would enjoy it this much when I came up? Probably not. "It's surpassed my expectations and I have really enjoyed the city and the people up here. "I'm sure Derek and I can maybe come to some agreement. We will have to see. "It's a job, at the end of the day, so the money has to be right. But on the other side, you don't want to work somewhere you are not happy. "I have two kids that I have been living away from for the past three years. It's been a case of coming back weekly to see them. I just have to find the right balance for me. "But Derek has given me time off to fly back down to see them. He knows how important that is to me and I really appreciated it." Aberdeen face St Johnstone on Saturday - two weeks after the Perth club killed off their cup double hopes as they beat them 2-1 in the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-finals. But Logan insists clinching a Europa League spot is more prominent in their mind than gaining revenge for that Ibrox upset. "We know three points will secure a European place and that is all we are focusing on," he said. "But I know St Johnstone are a good team with some decent individuals, so it will be a tough game." St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright believes his team's Scottish Premiership feats are more impressive than their William Hill Scottish Cup exploits. The Northern Irishman has been nominated for the PFA Scotland manager of the year award after guiding the Perth club to the final of the competition for the first time in their 130-year history. He also oversaw two impressive away wins in the Europa League qualifiers and another decent run to the League Cup semi-finals - all while slashing over B#200,000 off his playing budget. But Wright insists it is his team's league performance which has shone brightest. The club secured top-six football for the third year in a row and could finish as high as fourth if they rein in Dundee United's three-point lead. Ahead of Saturday's Pittodrie clash with Aberdeen - who Saints beat to secure their Celtic Park final showdown with Dundee United on May 17 - Wright said: "As a club, we budgeted to finish 10th because our budget was cut. Even though we were successful last year on the pitch, our gates went down and we had to make savings. "But within this group, we made the top six our aim. I think we have improved this season and we are on course to surpass last year's points total. "The top teams have been better this year. We got third with 53 points but Motherwell have already got 61, so the competition has been tougher. "So I think our league performances have been more impressive than our cup feats. "So far we are more than satisfied with how the team has done, especially when you consider the injuries we've had. "We've lost Steven MacLean for 19 games, Allan Mannus for a while, Steven Anderson for three months, Gary McDonald for six weeks and had both Murray Davidson and Tam Scobbie ruled out for the rest of the season yet coped really well. "That shows our depth and how well we have really done to get into the top six."
