    Games are coming thick and fast this month...

    Gordon

    Lustig Jozo Benkovic Tierney

    Brown McGregor

    Forrest Christie Edouard

    Griff
    Few players out in loads against Rosenberg and today, thought Rogic looked really shaky after he crouched down injured for a while so have him on the bench for this.

    Sinclair had a shocker today and Griff needs minutes, I like Edouard having space to run at players. Christie/McGregor can be switched as and when.

    Broony back in, with no Boyata a wee bit extra in midfield will go a long way...

    Think Brown comes back in, this is the game of the 3 from Rosenborg, Aberdeen and Motherwell in a week I was worried about personally. The other 2 there was no need to gee ourselves up for, this is a crucial 3 points and we could be doing with fresh impetus.

    Rogic and Sinclair are needing benched for this. Brown back in.

    I'd rest Lustig as well, mate. He was looking a wee bit leggy again today IMO. Today and Salzburg are far more important than all the other games combined.

    I considered it but I hate changing the defence too much, Gamboa, Jozo and Benkovic have very rarely played in the same team as each other. With Lustig there it’s just Jozo and Benkovic.

    Motherwell are gash this season, but 3 games in such a short space of time might take an effect on us plus it's away from home. Brown, Griffiths and Simunovic should all come in for this. I can see this being a tight 1 or 2-0.

    True, mate. I think the reason we see this differently is because I'd quite happily risk a defeat on Wednesday if it gives us a better chance against Salzburg.

    I think keeping up the momentum will be of more use against Salzburg. Give Jozo and Benkovic a game together, can introduce Gamboa on the weekend.

    Thought Forrest looked pretty tired yesterday, the lad he was up against played him well tbf.. the thing is for me Morgan isn't a winger, MJ needs to go on loan to get more senior game time, Hayes is a risk & Arzani is out for year.. it's a position we need to strengthen in Jan.

    Forrest must of played 30 odd games this season for club and Country. With his high paced style it will take a toll and he needs to be rested. Its a shame with arzani, otherwise I think he could of filled in a few games or made taking off Forrest easier

    I'd play two up front for this.

    Don’t want to change the backline since it’s as solid as it’s been for a long time. Forrest needs a rest and wouldn’t drop Christie McGregor or Rogic so Sinclair can sit this one out. Confident that line up can score plenty. Time for Morgan to get a chance.

    Play the strongest 11 so that includes Forrest, I agree Sinclair should be dropped he's rank.

    Need to show a bit of bite in this one. The likes of Campbell and Turnbull will be launching into our midfield with some aggressive tackles most likely. Would maybe rest a couple who are a tad jaded.

    This, however, is a massive game. One slip-up and the huns can go top properly. Can't be having that at any stage of the season. Think the motivation of being close to them in the table will spur us on though.

    3-0.
