Football - Banks in goal for semi-final

St Johnstone will put their faith in 41-year-old goalkeeper Steve Banks to see them through their League Cup semi-final with Aberdeen on Saturday after regular number one Alan Mannus was ruled out for six weeks.

The Northern Irishman - suspended for the Tynecastle clash - has also suffered a fractured thumb and Banks will take over for the meeting with Derek McInnes' side.

Former Scotland striker Chris Iwelumo could make his Saints debut but defender Tam Scobbie is suspended while midfielder Murray Davidson and striker Steven McLean (both knee) remain on the sidelines.
