    Genuinely think Johnston is next superstar.

    His enthusiasm with the ball, driving at defenders.

    Started the season on fire. Hope he hits the ground running when he’s back.

    How far away is he from a return?
    Would be great to have him for sheep.

    No chance of that. Out for a few more weeks at least going on Lenny's comments.

    We need him back soon, Elyounoussi has been great and Forrest playing well but currently we have no-one to sub on for them or rest them for as Hayes and Morgan are more defensively sound wide players rather than attacking and Sinclair and Shved arent in contention.

    Games like last night Johnston could probably win by himself as he can beat 3/4 men on his own. Forrest I think is badly in need of rest, last few games he looks done by 60 minutes.

    With Ntcham and Rogic back now as soon as we have Johnston and Griffiths or Bayo or both back as well then it's game over for the rest as we'll be able to rotate the players more which we've not really been able to do well so far without losing a good bit of attacking quality.

    NL: Mikey was back training so he may come in to contention.”

    Would be a great option to have come off the bench for Saturday if needed or even if we are in control to ease him back into things.

    Hopefully the wee man's been using the time out to work on a bit of upper body strength as well..

    Be great to have him back fighting it out..

    KT is the prime example. When he was out in the invincible season he bulked up ten-fold.

    Also Ryan Christie that personal trainer worked a dream for him!

    Would be a boost if we get him on for last half hour tomorrow.

    Got to imagine he'll learn a lot from Elyoynoussi..

    Would be ideal to have him rotate with both Forrest and Ely. That would gov all adequate rest periods.

    Hip and groin aye. Its definitely worrying if he’s getting close and breaking down. Wee guy is the real deal, will be gutting if he’s wrecked with injuries.

    Far too early to be worried about his injuries.
