St Johnstone boss Callum Davidson has admitted that he is unsure if Murray Davidson will be fit to feature in Sunday’s Betfred Cup Final against Livingston.

Davidson has been out with a calf injury since the start of February. He did return to training in a bid to make the squad, but the Saints boss has revealed that the player has suffered a setback in his bid to make the squad.

Now Davidson has disclosed that as it stands he isn’t sure if the 32-year-old will feature for the Saints in the Hampden Park showdown.

However, Davidson is going to give the player every opportunity he can to make the squad.

“We’ll need to see”

“He just had a tiny bit of a setback on Monday, so we’ll need to see how he is” he said.

“He is close, but we’re just not sure how close he is. That’s the only downside to this week. We will wait and see how he is.

“Give him every chance”

“We knew we would have to push him hard for this Sunday, so we’ll give him every chance to be available. I haven’t picked my team yet, so I’ll wait and see how he is” Davidson concluded.

Davidson will no doubt be desperate to feature in the game after missing out on St Johnstone’s Scottish Cup win over Dundee United in 2014.

At least his manager is giving him every opportunity he can to make the squad. This is a good thing for Davidson, but as it stands only time will tell if he features in the game.
