Defeat not significant

Dundee United assistant manager Simon Donnelly says their latest defeat to St Johnstone will have no bearing on next month's Scottish Cup final.

Saints triumphed in the local derby at McDiarmid Park courtesy of goals from Steven Anderson and Stevie May.

"That's four weeks down the road," Donnelly told BBC Scotland. "We can play a lot better than that. Our focus today was on three points. Unfortunately today, the cutting edge wasn't there.

"We came here trying to get another three points to keep our challenge on the two teams above us alive and we've not got that," he added. "We didn't start the game particularly well and St Johnstone managed to get their noses in front. In these types of games, the first goal is very important."
