Adams banks on Steve to impress at Perth
Steve Banks is no Dino Zoff but Ross County manager Derek Adams reckons the veteran goalkeeper will have no problems replacing Alan Mannus for St Johnstone today.
Legendary Italian international Zoff lifted the World Cup in Spain in 1982 for the Azzurri at the age of 40 while Banks, at 41, is making his senior comeback to replace injured Northern Ireland international Mannus (shoulder).
