Match Preview

Wright absent for Saints St Johnstone will be without suspended defender Frazer Wright for their Clydesdale Bank Premier League game against Inverness. Boss Steve Lomas will give left-back Callum Davidson (hamstring) and midfielder Murray Davidson (knee) every opportunity to prove their fitness ahead of the visit of the Highlanders. The manager has also yet to decide whether to include new signing Derek Riordan in the squad as the striker continues with his quest to improve his fitness. Inverness manager Terry Butcher has urged his players to make him eat his words after his criticism of their late collapse against Hibernian. Caley Thistle dominated for an hour against Hibs on Sunday but suffered their second successive home defeat when a late Leigh Griffiths goal sealed a 3-2 win for the visitors. The defeat saw second-bottom Hibs move five points behind Inverness and added to Butcher's frustration over a season ruined by injuries, missed chances and the concession of soft goals. Butcher hit out at his players over a "crazy 26 minutes" and wants them to put that right against St Johnstone, the team that inflicted their previous home loss. "We are making chances and looking hungry but we have to stop that sloppiness and giving opponents easy goals," Butcher said. "That sounds simple but what is required is concentration, work, spirit, togetherness and desire. "You can label these things but you can't physically give them to players. It's in the players' minds. "What they have to do is ram my words down my throat and say 'I can do this'. "If they can do that I'll be the first to hold my hands up and say well done. "I know if a manager of mine had said things like that to me, and they did because I have had a lot more criticism than I give to my players, I wanted to ram it right down his throat. "That included people like Bobby Robson and Bobby Ferguson at Ipswich. "I wanted to make them eat their words and be proud of me, that was my main aim as a player, that gave me more drive than anything else, and that's what I'm looking for from my players this weekend." Inverness winger Aaron Doran is in contention for a comeback. The Irishman has only played two games since August after a hamstring injury stopped short his return from a dislocated shoulder but he scored in a midweek reserve game against Falkirk. Goalkeeper Ryan Esson (groin), defender Chris Hogg (knee) and midfielder Andrew Shinnie (foot) remain out but the latter is running again and hopes to feature before the end of the season.
