Steve Lomas: The St Johnstone boss will take his side into Europe for the first time this century
Steve Lomas insists the wait to see who St Johnstone face in the Europa League will not take the shine off their qualification.
The unseeded side have been drawn to face Kris Boyd's former club Eskisehirspor but face an anxious wait as their place in the tournament is not yet confirmed.
Saints could face Bursaspor should another Turkish club Besiktas win their appeal against being dumped out of the competition by UEFA at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
But St Johnstone boss Lomas says he is preparing his side as best he can and does not care who they face in the second qualifying round.
"Whatever the draw is going to be we are back in Europe and it's something for the fans to enjoy," said Lomas.
"It looks like we're going to Turkey, we just don't know for sure who we are playing.
"It's not going to be easy to prepare but we will get on with it and look forward to it. It's great for the club and it's great for the supporters."
