St Johnstone will have forward Steven MacLean back in their squad for Wednesday night’s home game against Rangers.
MacLean, a former Rangers player, missed the 1-0 away win over Kilmarnock as, due to medical advice, he doesn’t play on artificial surfaces.
Saints did OK without him, though, at Rugby Park as Murray Davidson’s goal gave them victory and continued their fabulous away form.
Boss Tommy Wright hailed his side after they weathered both Kilmarnock and Storm Barbara to pick up another win on the road.
The Perth outfit were faced with heavy showers and a swirling wind as they ran out at Rugby Park.
However, Davidson’s first-half strike ensured Saints collected their fourth away win of the campaign as they moved to within a point of fourth-placed Hearts.
It was Davidson’s second goal in recent games as he also scored in the 3-0 home win over Inverness Caley Thistle.
Wright said: “I’m happy with the performance. It was very difficult conditions and we lost a bit of control for about 25 minutes in the second half when Kilmarnock had a right go.
“They put a lot of balls in our box but we defended how we know we can.
“They had a few little skirmishes but not really any clear-cut chances.
“We saw the game out pretty comfortably in the end, so we’ve got to be happy coming here to a difficult surface and getting a clean sheet and a win.
“We handled the conditions well. I think both teams did. The surface is quick, a lot of balls going out of play but I think both teams tried to play. Ultimately we got the three points.”
