Match Preview

Lomas hopes for luck to change Steve Lomas hopes the old adage that refereeing decisions even themselves out over the course of the season proves to be true after claiming all the big calls have gone against St Johnstone since he took over as manager. Lomas replaced Derek McInnes at the helm in November and has guided the Perth club to fourth spot in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League so far and to within touching distance of a Europa League berth. But the Saints boss believes their impressive exploits are despite a number of decisions wrongly going against his side and he hopes their luck is about to change in the remaining five games, starting with Saturday's clash against Dundee United. Lomas told Press Association Sport: "We keep hearing that decisions even themselves up - that old saying that keeps coming out. "Well, since I've been in Scotland, we have not had decisions go our way. The key ones are definitely going against us. "I keep saying that referees have a really hard job. But that old saying that comes out that decisions even themselves up over the course of the year - not since I've been here. "Maybe you can only take it as bad luck. Referees call it as they see it. I would never question a referee's integrity. Never. It's a hard enough job. But we definitely feel we are not getting key decisions at the minute and it's hurting us." The Saints are boosted by the return of Jamie Adams from injury. Adams is back in contention after recovering from a hip injury which has sidelined him since September, while fellow midfielder Murray Davidson is fit again after a knee problem. Lee Croft is out with a hamstring injury and Jody Morris and Liam Craig are both suspended for the visit of United. United's recent form has given them a chance of overhauling Motherwell for the Champions League spot that third place will bring, with Rangers' financial problems seeing them excluded from European football. Peter Houston's men won six games in a row but their most recent game, a 3-1 defeat by Aberdeen, has left them realistically needing to take something from the Tayside derby. United striker Jon Daly said: "It's really Motherwell's place to lose. They've got a five-point gap on St Johnstone and six on ourselves. It's a big, big gap with 15 points to play for. "We're looking for them to lose maybe three games in the run-in and us to win basically all of our games. The pressure is not really on us. "We were in the bottom half of the table for a long part of the season. We always knew that once we got into our stride we could get into the top half. "At that stage we were just looking at the top six and see where we were going from there." Garry Kenneth will miss out for United with a Hamstring injury. Houston is unsure how long the centre-back will be missing for. Striker Milos Lacny is out for the season with a knee injury.
