St Johnstone boss Steve Lomas is confident his team will bounce back from the thrashing against Celtic when they host Motherwell.

Neil Lennon's men exacted revenge for a 2-1 defeat by Saints in September with a 5-0 victory in the Scottish Communities League Cup quarter-final on Tuesday.

Lomas insists there is little point in dwelling on a bad night for the team and he is already preparing St Johnstone for the visit from Motherwell on Saturday.

"First and foremost I look at myself to see if I could have done anything better and I possibly could, I could have gone with a different shape," Lomas said.

"The players are honest enough, though, to realise they didn't play too well.

"We have always been pretty competitive against Celtic but we weren't good enough on and off the ball. But we have to put it aside, learn our lesson and go again on Saturday.

"There is no point in moping about. We have to pick ourselves up because we have a massive game against Motherwell."
