St Johnstone manager Steve Lomas is still a fan of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League split despite his side coming off worst out of the top six teams ahead of the final games of the season.
The post-split fixtures revealed Saints will play just two of the last five matches at home, while being handed three away meetings in a row.
The Perth side host Dundee United, before travelling to Motherwell, Celtic and Hearts, and finally bring the campaign to a close with the visit of Rangers at McDiarmid Park.
Lomas said: "It's disappointing for the fans. Three away journeys on the bounce is hard for them in terms of the financial side of it. But I think the split brings more good to Scottish football than it does bad. I'm a fan of the concept.
"We've probably got the raw end of the stick but I suppose you can't please everybody. I'm disappointed mainly for the fans that they've got extra travel and three in a week is a lot of money."
Before the league split, Saints play host to Inverness and will be hoping for a return to winning ways following last week's 2-0 defeat to Celtic.
Lomas was unhappy with some of the decisions he felt went against his side, but insists it is time to move on from the clash at Parkhead and focus on this weekend's action instead.
He said: "It's done and dusted and I don't like to rake back over it. We move on and try to put in another performance. Hopefully this time we will get the rub of the green.
St Johnstone recently defeated the Highlanders 1-0 but Lomas says that match counts for nothing ahead of Saturday's clash.
He added: "This is a totally new game now. We know what Inverness bring to the party and we know that if we don't put a decent performance in, we will get turned over."
