    Was a save mate, don’t actually think it was going in but was * unlucky. Biggest plus in both boxes for us.

    Didn't realise that. Was right at the back of the North Stand today so quite far away.

    Loved his tussles with Brown today at the corners. Certainly going at each other, neither backing off.

    McGregor had a few with him as well:56:

    Honestly was delighted when Broony went off, game opened up, done a cracking job on Kyogo. Stood between him and our midfield, was * annoying.

    I miss him

    Lustig and Matthews, that's a good level to start with aye. He can't handle more skilled players down that side, let's not pretend we can't see that. Again, great at the weekend, but we need someone else to start those big games.

    Will he improve or stay at this level though, for all he's been good for us but is this his peak?.

    You can say that about literally any player. Only time will tell

    Those diagonals were new, he’s obviously been working on them at training and been given the all clear to unleash them. The team is built on %’s, moving the ball and creation. That ball now signals that their RB can’t come inside to help mark the middle without letting Jota run into space.

    Am sure he got whacked early doors and thats why he had to go off. Another really good shift, hope its nothing serious. Quality assist again.

    Didn’t get to watch him but get the impression he’s the type that wouldn’t go off unless it was a bad one.

    Will be heart sick for him if he’s out for the final

    Big man was excellent as always, just praying he's not out for long.

    Was always a possibility playing both our right back's constantly..

    Gutted for him. Have a feeling Juranovic will probably take over the RB spot from now on.

    Some cross for the goal. He pulled up after it but could well have been McKay stamp on his ankle early on that was the cause.

    Just saw the replay of it on Sportscene and it definitely deserved a card of some colour.

    Think he'll be a bigger miss if out for a bit than most realise. With him and CCV out we've got literally no physical presence at all and his contribution in forward play and passes out to forwards varies our play and quite often keeps opponents on the back foot.

    Our lack of fit decent LB’s has cost us here with Ralston not getting a break with Josip on the left.Montgomery at LB for the rest of the year is a big worry.

    Ange mentioned Taylor is maybe getting close in his interview after the match.

    I'd play Montgomery on Sunday if he keeps performs in training. Can't bring him into a game like yesterday's and then drop him straight off.

    Will be a big miss, starting to be a real presence in the team.
    But we have a really decent option with Josip, so no worries.
    Its just that of all the options at LB, jury is out on all.
    I hope he runs with Monty, he has shown enough to be considered, after all its the like of Dundee Utd etc, not some European big hitters we will be up against.

    Wee Hun McKay did him early, should have been at least a yellow, wonder if that caused it..
