There are those that are aiming to bring them down with a bump this afternoon.
They are better known as St Johnstone. Steve Lomas believes supporters will witness "an old-fashioned cup-tie" when his side face St Mirren in the fifth round of the William Hill Scottish Cup in Paisley. The hosts have followed up that semi-final win over Celtic with a 2-1 Clydesdale Bank Premier League win over second-placed Inverness in midweek, although Lomas thinks fans could be the ones in for a treat this afternoon.
"St Mirren have done brilliantly and they were doing well before Christmas so I'm sure Danny didn't want the winter break to come," said the St Johnstone manager. "When they have everyone fit, they are a good team. They have good players like Stevie Thompson, Paul McGowan and Gary Teale, who has Premier League experience, and they have good young players like Kenny McLean, so they have a good mix in the team and it is going to be a tough game all right.
"Our performance against Aberdeen [in midweek] was good, although I thought we also played well against Motherwell in the previous game to that even though we lost. But we were delighted with the result against Aberdeen and I get the feeling that this is going to be an old-fashioned cup tie with two teams who like to attack so there could be plenty of goals."
Lomas was pleased with the way his club emerged from the transfer window after he signed both Newcastle United's Mehdi Abeid and Swansea City's Gwion Edwards on loan until the end of the season. They join Michael Doughty, the Queens Park Rangers midfielder, who made his debut against Aberdeen after also joining on a loan deal as midfielder Kevin Moon left the club by mutual consent.
St Mirren were also able to secure a return for Paul Dummett, the Newcastle defender, on loan. The Englishman spent the earlier part of the season in Paisley and he is eager to consolidate a place in the team ahead of the League Cup final at Hampden.
"Some players will probably go through their career without playing in a cup final and I'm only 21," he said. "I'm desperate to get back in but Graham Carey has been playing left-back and I can't expect to come straight back in the team. Graham has done a brilliant job.
"But that's what is good about the team, having players that can play in different positions and there is going to be a fight for places and that can only help St Mirren get better results and climb up the table."
