Saint Johnstone manager Tommy Wright has picked up the Scottish Premier League manager of the month award for November.

Wright, who led Lisburn Distillery to the League cup in 2011, has helped his Perth side to a six-match unbeaten run, winning two and drawing one of their league games without conceding a goal last month.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s fixture against Hearts Wright said: "Form can change so quickly. People would have said playing us after Celtic beat us was the perfect time and look what happened. Managers don't sit and think 'they've lost three'... you think the other way, that they haven't won so they are due to pick up points.

"So it doesn't enter into my psyche or the players' psyche. Their form is not good but they are still ahead of us. It just shows you how tough this league is.

"They were unbeaten at the top of the league then all of a sudden the goals dry up and they slip down the league a bit.

"They will be disappointed with the run they are on but Craig is experienced enough to know how quickly it turns round."

The Saints' November form sees them fifth in the table heading into a hectic festive schedule for the top flight.
