St Mirren manager Danny Lennon is not getting carried away

St Mirren manager Danny Lennon is reading nothing into his side's early lead at the the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

The Saints are above Hearts on goal difference with four points from their first two games ahead of the visit of bottom club Hibernian on Saturday. Lennon, though, is aware that champions Celtic and Dundee United have have played only once and both are on three points.

And, when the Buddies boss was asked if he had taken a look at the table this week, he said: "No, not at all. We are not getting carried away with that. It is very early days."

He added: "Every manager will look at Glasgow Celtic and think, with the budget that they have, that they will walk away with this league, but we will all want to challenge and get as close as we possibly can.

"We are enjoying ourselves at the minute, we have picked up four points out of six and had a terrific win on the road last week at Dundee.

"It is down to the boys and us getting across to them how we keep continuing the progression.

"They are a fantastic group to work with and the difficult thing is that we can only pick 11.

"The ones that aren't playing haven't done anything wrong but they will get an opportunity to make an impact from the bench."
