Tristan Nydam says he has remained patient and is hopeful of more time on the pitch at his new home, St Johnstone.

The Zimbabwe-born midfielder joined the Scottish side on loan from Ipswich in August but has failed to become a regular in the first team.

He made his first start early this month but was back on the bench last weekend. The 19-year-old has played just 126 minutes in total during his spell with The Saints, which is due to last until January.

In an interview with Perth Courier, Nydam said: “It was great getting my first start, I wanted to enjoy it,” he said.

“I haven’t scored for Ipswich so I know to add goals to my locker is something I have to do.

“I have managed to be patient. I have worked hard and the gaffer has rewarded me. I wasn’t matched fit when I first came up in August and had been injured. So it was understandable the gaffer didn’t throw me straight in.

“Hopefully I’ve done enough to stay in the team.”
