Callum Davidson has provided a fitness update on two of his experienced St Johnstone men, Craig Conway and Murray Davidson.

The pair both left McDiarmid Park injured on Saturday afternoon following the match with Motherwell. An ambulance picked Davidson up at the stadium after he landed awkwardly on his shoulder following a challenge with Robbie Crawford.

Conway meanwhile took a sore one to the face when facing Well defender Bevis Mugabi. St Johnstone’s manager has said both are being assessed, one already having a diagnosis.

“Murray fell awkwardly and he’s going to get checked out to make sure he’s OK,” said Davidson. “It was more he fell on the shoulder so we want to take precautions to get him assessed.

“I can’t say any more at the moment because I don’t know. Craig has broken his nose as well.

“So, it’s one of those, when you get one (injury) you get another. Hopefully they’re both ok.”

It was a 1-1 draw at home to Motherwell on Saturday for St Johnstone. A Mark O’Hara opener was cancelled out by Stevie May’s penalty, Davidson content with a point in Perth.

“The effort was there from the players, they were the ones trying to win the game,” he said. “I thought we started brightly, got into good areas and pressed really well from the middle of the pitch.

“On the flip side, we just need to do a little bit better when we get to that final third and show more composure. We got into good areas without really testing the goalkeeper.

“At the start of the season we might have lost 1-0. At Motherwell away they scored the goal after three minutes and we couldn’t score after that. The positive signs are there.”
