St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson says it’s nice to have a selection headache despite injuries to two key players.

Number one goalkeeper Zander Clark missed out at the weekend after picking up a toe injury against Rangers while Scott Tanser is set to miss the rest of the season. Ahead of a Scottish Cup semi-final with St Mirren this Sunday, Davidson made seven changes to his team and still won 1-0 away at Hibs.

Providing an update on Clark and Tanser, the St Johnstone manager was pleased with his squad: “It shows the depth we have. I was pleased with the players I could put on and the players who came in were excellent and worked extremely hard. I probably did have a team in my head but people have now put question marks in that.

“That is good for me and makes it more difficult for me. Hopefully we will get through this week in training and everyone stays fit and healthy and we can look forward to Sunday. Over the last few weeks I’ve made a few changes with the aim of getting guys some game time. I am happy with any of the 18 players who I pick.

“Scott Tanser will probably be out for the rest of the season. It’s a bit of a blow The good news is it isn’t as bad as we first thought but he’s out until pre-season. I think Zander got himself involved in the celebrations (against Rangers) and someone stood on his big toe. Hopefully it’s not too bad. We will need to see how it settles down this week.”
