WANDERERS midfielder Ali Crawford was on target in St Johnstone’s 2-0 win at Dundee in the Premier Sports Cup quarter-final.

Crawford found the bottom corner with a clinical strike from the edge of the box after some good work by Callum Booth on the left wing.

It is the midfielder’s first goal for the club since leaving the UniBol on loan in search of regular playing time this summer.

"It was a really tough game,” Saints boss Callum Davidson told BBC Sport. “Dundee had a go and so did we. They had the slightly better chances, but after we scored we settled down a bit.

"That's why I brought Ali (Crawford) in, for that attacking side. He gives us that other dimension, and Shaun (Rooney) seems to turn up and score these goals at the right moment. Hopefully that can continue."

The Saints now face a trip to Hampden Park for the semi-final as they look to defend the trophy they won last season.

The draw will take place following Celtic’s clash with Raith Rovers this evening.

Meanwhile, Ronan Darcy made his Sogndal debut in a 2-0 defeat against Asane in the Norwegian Cup.

The youngster managed 45 minutes after a training injury had kept him out of action for his first few weeks in Norway.

Darcy initially had problems getting into the country after agreeing to play for ex-Leeds United star Eirik Bakke until the end of the year due to a change in quarantine laws.
