St Johnstone boss Callum Davidson is sweating over the fitness of two of his players after James Brown and Lars Dendoncker were both forced out of the 1-1 draw with Hearts at half-time.

The pair have been impressive for Davidson’s side recently and are rated “doubtful” for the weekend clash with Dundee United at the weekend as they look to end the Terrors’ seven-game unbeaten run.

Davidson admitted he was disappointed for both players after they had to be replaced at half-time last night as he confirmed they’ll be assessed ahea of the short journey to Tannadice on Saturday.

“I’m really disappointed for Lars (groin) and Browny (hamstring),” said Davidson. “Two young lads who performed really well.

“It was tough on them to have to go off.

“We’ll assess them but they’ll be doubtful for Saturday.”

Last night’s draw leaves the Saints four points above Ross County at the foot of the Premiership table and Davidson and his players will be hoping they can start climbing the table soon.

Performances haven’t actually been that bad but individual errors keep costing St Johnstone and leave them on the brink of being sucked into a relegation battle this season.
