Lee Croft will not be rushed says St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright.

The 28-year old former Manchester City and Norwich City winger has joined the Saints on a short-term deal after failing to land a contract at Millwall but Wright insists the club will not bring him in ahead of time.

"He needs a couple of games and unfortunately the under-20 game was cancelled on Tuesday,” he said.

"We have got to make sure we don't overwork him or put him in too early because it has been a long time since he has played any football. Other than the long-term injuries, we have a fully fit squad so there is no big rush to bring him back.

"He's a player that can make things happen in the final third, has a good delivery and a good eye for goal as well. I'm looking forward to getting him fit."
