No secret to Saints revival insists Lomas

Manager Steve Lomas does not believe that there is any 
great secret to St Johnstone’s 
rejuvenation.

The Perth club won their first game of the season at home to Celtic in the SPL in the middle of the month, when it looked like they could struggle to get off the bottom of the table. And they are now on a run which has seen them win three and draw one of their last four games, the most recent being the 4-1 Scottish Communities League Cup third-round victory over Queen’s Park in midweek. Ahead of the trip to Tayside neighbours Dundee in the SPL tomorrow, the McDiarmid Park manager said that the most obvious problems have been addressed.

“People like to over-complicate it and over-analyse it but it is simple,” said Lomas. “It makes a difference when you can score when you are on top. We are taking chances now which we weren’t doing and I think we have been harder to score against, so it is a combination. When we weren’t getting the results I was happy with the 
performances.

“If we had played like the way we did against Aberdeen in the first five or six games I wouldn’t have been happy. But I believed it was going to turn, when, was the question.

“It is a massive carrot for us to win three SPL games on the spin.”
