Danny McNamara was instantly thrown in at the deep end upon his return to Millwall from St Johnstone.
The Irish youth international was impressive for Callum Davidson’s side in the first half of this season, featuring 22 times following a loan move from Millwall. It was form that caught the eye of his parent club.
Millwall moved to recall the right-back following St Johnstone’s last match with Ross County and McNamara has already made his debut following this. He featured for 90 minutes on Saturday as the Den side beat Boreham Wood 2-0 in the FA Cup.
There was another SPFL face to look out for on the opposing side too. Junior Morias started up top for the non-league side following a loan move back down south from St Mirren. He scored two goals in 47 appearances while in Paisley.
Meanwhile, St Johnstone have demanded an SPFL investigation into why their weekend match with Dundee United was postponed. The match was called off less than two hours before kick-off due to a frozen pitch, Dundee facing Bonnyrigg Rose in the Scottish Cup across the street at Dens Park just hours later.
The game will now be played on Tuesday night but a Saints statement reads: “We are disappointed the game was called off just over 90 minutes from kick-off. With Dundee United having undersoil heating, we fully expected the fixture to go ahead. We did not expect this.
“We now fully expect the SPFL to look into why the game could not be played and why it was such a late call off.”
