St Johnstone’s Wright eyeing Scottish Cup glory

Tommy Wright feels perhaps it will be St Johnstone’s year this year.

Tommy Wright feels perhaps it will be St Johnstone’s year this year.

The Perth club take on Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Ibrox on Sunday and after losing to the Dons at the same point of the League Cup, Wright feels his Saints are due some luck.

The former Newcastle United and Manchester City goalkeeper will be back on the touchline after watching recent matches from the directors box after having surgery to remove his gall bladder and is hoping he can influence his side to produce a winning result in their final four fixture.

"We have had a tremendous season, both in the league and in the cups. We got to the semi-final of the League Cup but the Scottish Cup is the premier competition, it's the big showpiece so it's a massive game for the club,” he told Sky Sports News.

"I have been attending the last couple of games and being involved but from the directors box but on Sunday I'd like to take my place in the dugout. Being higher up you get a better and clearer view of the game so I have enjoyed it and the chairman's company.

"In the last couple of seasons we have been sixth and third but this season it has been well documented that we have had to tighten our budget or cut the budget so we have had a great season so far.

"But it would be no good getting to the final and not going on to win it, so maybe it is out year."

The other Scottish Cup semi-final will take place at Ibrox on Saturday between League One champions Rangers and Dundee United.
