    Wee bit of a mixture of squad and full team. Give Ciftci the full game as a chance to get his confidence up, same with GMS

    Perfect game for fringe players to get a run out and get some match fitness. Agree with you that Ciftci should start so he can hopefully get another goal.

    I don't want to start messing around with the team too much, I agree with Ciftci, although would defo go 2 up front now.

    Get the job done, please no fk ups.

    Go with a strong team and make sure we don't take things too easily.

    Whoever we intend playing LB in the Europa needs game time.

    Think this is a game Forrest should definitely be rested for. Played Thursday/Sunday.

    Not bothered if we go out. The first team players need rested. Bigger fish to fry. Also fringe players could do with games. Our second team should be well capable though so play them.

    Of course I want it but getting out of or Europa group and keeping up a winning run in the league takes priority. Even if we were cruising in both competitions I am still in favour of squad rotation in the league cup. Our season starts very early and we have a heap of midweek games, we also have a big squad so use it. There is no reason why our fringe players along with a few seniors cant win the league cup.

    100% guarenteed if they knock us out you'll be calling for Ronny to get the sack mate.

    Just edited my team for Stokes to be put in, I'd have him in with GMS on the right.

    Bench to have the young 'uns Commons and Griffiths for emergencies.

    I'd like the likes of Nesbitt to see some action though.

    I actually wont and you can quote me on it. Perhaps if in a later round he makes a pigs ear of it then it might be different but if he plays fringe players against Raith and they lose, I will not mind. At this point the league cup should be well down in our list of priorities. I still want to win it though but with heavy squad rotation.

    I actually cant wait until we win a treble so that we can get it out of our system and go back to treating the league cup as a chance to play our fringe men.

    edit. for clarity if he plays our strongest side and we lose then I wont be happy

    Full strength squad for this. Still feel sick thinking back to Morton two year ago.
