    Forster

    Frimpong
    Jullien
    Ajer
    Taylor

    Christie
    McGregor
    Rogic

    Johnston
    Morgan

    Griffiths

    If Ntcham is available I would swap him for McGregor, or Bitton. Need to wrap it up early and get a few rested.

    Would definitely be good to see Afolabi get minutes. I'd imagine he is fitter and sharper than Griff at the moment plus he is a physical unit.

    Plays well and he could be a wildcard for the bench on Sunday

    We have enough injury concerns at the moment so I'd be tempted to rest a few key players for this. The league is of course priority but we should be able to rest players and still beat Hamilton convincingly.

    Forster

    Frimpong
    Jullien
    O'Connor
    Taylor

    Brown
    Bitton
    Rogic

    Morgan
    Griffiths
    Johnston

    Would also be nice to see some youngsters get minutes from the bench if possible: Robertson, Afolabi, Oko-Flex or Dembele

    Griffiths

    Tempting to rest more ahead of the final, but it's too much of a risk making wholesale changes. Hopefully have this wrapped up by the hour mark, sub Ajer, McGregor and Forrest and we'll have a fresh XI for Sunday.

    Tbf he scored a good goal on Thursday mate, and did well for third goal on Sunday but apart from that he’s still been pretty weak n anonymous

    he has improved from previous games but it would be hard not to cause he was murder

    Give Griff a start to give him some game time before cup final.

    Agreed would definitely start Griffiths in this one and give Brown and McGregor the night off as well. No need for 2 holding mids so Biton can step in. I think assuming El Hamed is unfit for the weekend I would rest up Frimpong as well and give Bauer the start at right back.

    Can’t take our eye of the ball with this one. It’s going to be backs to the wall stuff for Hamilton. Early goal required and then hopefully no injuries before the final.

    Griff must start, if Ed is out * going with Morgan into the Cup Final, he's down well but I don't thinkits fair to play him out of position up front.

    Whack as many goals as we can.

    I'd go with

    Forster
    Frimpong Jullien Ajer Taylor
    Brown McGregor
    Morgan Ntcham Johnston
    Griffiths
