St. Johnstone vs Inverness: Post match reaction
St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson: “We all know how tough a season it’s been and where we were,” said Davidson.
“I’m so proud of the boys.
“A big thanks to our supporters.
“After that Kelty game they’ve stood by us and backed us in big numbers tonight.
“We weren’t very good first half – a bit nervous and ponderous but we got the goal.
“It was great for Stevie to get it.
“We’d lost Jamie McCart with concussion before the game and then Glenn Middleton at half-time with a hamstring injury.
“Stevie gives everything for the team and that’s the type of spirit we needed tonight.”
“People have asked me about winning the two cups and staying in the league,” he said.
“For me, this a bigger achievement.
“I know that might sound strange.
“But mentally, to play under pressure like this every single week after being bottom from January by quite a bit was incredibly tough.”
