Tommy Wright pleased to see new St Johnstone signings score

St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright praises January signings Michael O'Halloran and James Dunne after both score their first goals for the club at Forfar Athletic.

St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright has praised January signings Michael O'Halloran and James Dunne after both scored their first goals for the club in Saturday's 4-0 win at Forfar Athletic in the Scottish Cup.

O'Halloran, making his first start since arriving from Bolton Wanderers, netted the Perth side's third of the game, before on-loan Stevenage midfielder Dunne came off the bench to complete the scoring on his debut.

Wright said: "Michael has been knocking on the door for a start and I thought he was excellent, he played really well and I'm pleased with him.

"James has come in and he's had to wait a couple of weeks to get on the pitch and I thought he was excellent when he came on and looked a really good player. And he took the goal really well, it was a great finish."

Following Celtic's shock exit, St Johnstone are now the fifth favourites to win the Scottish Cup, behind Aberdeen, Dundee Utd, Rangers and Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
