Derek McInnes fears the form of Cillian Sheridan and Francisco Sandaza will see scouts flocking to St Johnstone to watch the strike duo.

Sheridan and Sandaza were both on target in Saturday's 2-1 win at Kilmarnock and McInnes has been delighted by the duo's impact this season.

Former Celtic forward Sheridan has scored four goals during his loan spell from CSKA Sofia, while Sandaza has netted seven times in all competitions since arriving in the summer from Brighton & Hove Albion.

Saints boss McInnes said: "My worry is everyone will talk - and everybody comes looking at them. That's a real concern.

"But as long as we've got Fran and Cillian we'll enjoy working with them. I said at the time that I felt we were fortunate to get both players within our budget and both players are showing their quality.

"They'll get a lot of headlines - and that's right, because they're making the difference - but it was a team effort."
