Steve Lomas: Impressing at St Johnstone
St Johnstone boss Steve Lomas has played down speculation linking him with the vacancy at English Championship club Burnley.
Lomas has impressed in his first senior managerial role, guiding St Johnstone to a Europa league qualifying place last season after replacing Derek McInnes at McDiarmid Park last November.
Saints are currently second in the Scottish Premier League after the team equalled the club's record of five straight top-flight wins, dating back to 1971, with a 2-1 victory over Kilmarnock last week.
And the 38-year-old's success in Perth has put him in the frame for the Turf Moor job along with Falkirk boss Steven Pressley and former Watford manager Sean Dyche.
"I think it is just speculation," Lomas said. "There will be loads of people in for that.
"It is flattering and it proves that the lads must be doing something right but we are just focused on Inverness, it is a massive game on Saturday and we want to break that record.
"I don't want to talk about speculation, it is purely that."
