Match Preview

Davidson gets taste for international football St Johnstone's Murray Davidson has targeted further involvement with the Scotland team after making his international debut in midweek. The midfielder earned his first cap as a late substitute as interim national team boss Billy Stark secured a 2-1 win in Luxembourg on Wednesday night. Davidson's appearance may have lasted only a few minutes but was the first time a Saints player had represented Scotland for 80 years. He told the SPL's official YouTube channel: "I'm delighted to get the cap. "There has been a lot of support from St Johnstone - the fans, the players and people working here - so I'm thrilled. "Eighty years is a long time and it makes you feel proud. Fingers crossed I can do it again." Saints boss Steve Lomas said: "It's great for Murray to get a little taste of it. "It's a reward for all the hard work he's put in since he came here from Livingston as a midfield enforcer. "We think there's still a lot more to come from Murray. "We want him to be a goalscoring midfielder, it's something we have asked him to try to improve and he's trying to do that. "It's great for him and it's decent that Billy Stark has looked at clubs like Inverness and ourselves. "It's reward for players doing well. It's given Murray a taste and that's the carrot - if he works hard, the Scotland manager is looking." Saints secured an impressive 1-1 draw against Celtic last week and are hoping for maximum points when Ross County come calling in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League on Saturday. Lomas has been impressed by Derek Adams' men so far in their season in the top flight. He said: "All credit to Derek and his team, they've done very well. They've come up and been very competitive. "They are very well organised and they've got good team spirit. That - with a few decent players - can hurt you. "But we're at home and we want to get three points and we'll be aiming to do that." Grant Munro insists Ross County will not be on a revenge mission when they face St Johnstone The Highlanders saw their impressive 40-game unbeaten run come to an end at the hands of Saints, who claimed a 2-1 victory the last time the two sides met in September. Instead, Munro believes County should be looking to emulate the Perth club as they aim to survive their first season in Scottish football's top-flight. Asked if revenge will be a motivating factor at McDiarmid Park, the defender said: "I never think that way. "Football is a funny game. That day, we deserved more out of the game than we got but the couple of goals we lost were very poor, especially the winner." He added: "They're the benchmark. You've got to look at St Johnstone and the way they've performed over the years in the SPL. "They've always been in the safety margin. "It looks like they want to push on this year and it was a fantastic result for them on Sunday against Celtic so they'll be confident. "Hopefully we can impose ourselves on the game and keep their dangermen quiet. "They have got a lot of dangermen and they seem to be doing well this season." County will be without the suspended Rocco Quinn, while Russell Duncan misses out due to a knock and Martin Scott (ankle) remains on the sidelines. Mark Corcoran (groin) and Paul Lawson (hamstring) are back in training and a late decision will be taken on their involvement.
