St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright admits he wants to go into next month’s Scottish Cup final as underdogs.

St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright admits he wants to go into next month’s Scottish Cup final as underdogs.

The Saints are into the decider after beating Aberdeen 2-1 at Ibrox on the weekend and will take on Jackie McNamara’s Tangerines at Celtic Park on May 17.

Ahead of that potential history-making fixture, Wright is looking forward to entering the cup final as second favourites behind the Taysiders.

"Dundee United are favourites, no doubt, and Jackie knows that. They have a young squad with a lot of talent that everyone is talking about, and we love being underdogs so we're hanging on to that tag,‚ÄĚ said Wright.

"There is five weeks to go but we have got to refocus on the massive game against them this weekend. We still have hopes of catching them in the league and we want to finish fourth."
