St Johnstone sign goalkeeper Zlamal on emergency loan for cup semi SNS Group

St Johnstone have announced the signing of goalkeeper Zdenek Zlamal from Hearts on an emergency loan to cover the Scottish Cup semi-final.

The Perth club have been dealt a blow with news that four players will miss the Hampden clash with St Mirren following a Covid-19 outbreak.

St Johnstone boss Callum Davidson had been sweating over the fitness of Zander Clark, whose heroics helped the side knock Rangers out in the quarter-finals, but the keeper has been declared fit.

However, Saints have still moved to bring in Zlamal on a seven-day loan.

The Hearts goalkeeper previously played for St Mirren in three games earlier this season when coronavirus hit the Paisley club’s squad.
