May was on the scoresheet, along with strike partner Nigel Hasselbaink, as the home side eased past Motherwell 2-0 on Sunday afternoon, scuppering the lacklustre visitors' hopes of climbing up to second behind leaders Celtic.

"Nigel and Stevie May were a handful up front. Nigel's done really well in the last few weeks," said Wright.

"I am really pleased that we're getting more end product from him. He was alert and he worked hard. With the amount of hard work, he is getting his rewards now.

"Stevie plays with energy and mobility and a tempo about his game. He is a real live wire and he plays like that every week.

"I think Gordon Strachan was here and Stevie put in another good performance. We are just concentrating on getting him to continue to improve at his link-up play, which he is doing, to get into the box more and get more goals in the box.

"If he continues to do that, he will go to the very top of the game.

"We said to them before the game to win it and get in the top six. To beat Motherwell and be in the top six is pleasing. We now have a difficult tie away to Morton."

Well boss Stuart McCall said: "I'm naturally disappointed. It was an

uncharacteristic performance from us. We were off it today and we got beat. I didn't see it coming.

"The conditions don't make it great for great football but, when the conditions are like that, you have to look to win it in different ways. St Johnstone deserved their victory."
