Callum Davidson has been up all night for the last few days – and he expects a fairly busy end to the transfer window at St Johnstone.
The Saints boss was a happy man on Saturday night as his side capped off a fine week with a 3-2 comeback win over Kilmarnock. 2-0 down at the break, second half goals from Guy Melamed, Murray Davidson and Ali McCann sealed a brilliant win.
It allows them to look up instead of down and Davidson was delighted but cautious not to get too far ahead: “The first half was funny because that was probably the best we’ve played recently, so I was disappointed to be two goals down.
“We used the ball well and my only criticism was how we defended both goals. I asked the players at half-time to keep showing that belief and I believed the next goal would be crucial.
“Fortunately, we got it and that gave us the chance to come back at them and I thought the players were brilliant second half – their attitude, the way they got on the ball and got into spaces to hurt Kilmarnock and when the chances came we took them.
“Some of them were scrappy goals but I’ll take that. It was also a fine finish from Ali McCann to win it. I’d told them to keep playing forward and retain that positive mindset and that’s what they did. I also told them not to panic or rush passes and they didn’t.
“But Kilmarnock are very good on the counter-attack and we couldn’t afford to let them score that third goal. It’s been a good week, winning the Betfred Cup semi-final and then drawing a tough game against Aberdeen and now this. Hopefully this will give the lads confidence for the matches to come.
