St Johnstone v Trnava preview

St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright will have almost a full squad to select from for the first leg of the Europa League third qualifying round clash against Spartak Trnava at McDiarmid Park on Thursday evening.

Midfielder Gary MacDonald and defender Steven Anderson are both back in the frame for Saints after returning to training.

The duo missed both legs of the Scottish Cup winners' previous tie with Swiss outfit Luzern but McDonald is fit again after a back injury, while Anderson could also feature after shaking off his hamstring problem.

Midfielder Murray Davidson is the only absentee against the Slovakians as he continues to recover from knee surgery.
