    I'm well pleased with the results we've been getting but I don't think we had played near our best until today's game against Hibs where we played some really good football. If we play as well against Sarajevo with fewer defensive scares I would expect to win.

    If you play a 4 at the back you definitely do mate, he's more of a winger than a RB. Elhamed makes us much more solid..

    Think Lenny will keep it tight and use him as an impact sub..

    If we play any other formation with a 3 at the back he has to play.

    I imagine Eddy for Ajeti will be the only change..

    Christie will likely play even if he isn't 100% for this..

    Would be good to see the same line two games in a row tbf..

    Bitton brings a bit of composure too rarely let's us down.

    Can deffo see him starting it mate..

    Then maybe ring a couple of changes for Perth..

    Think they've scored 1 in 5 St Johnstone and conceding plenty..

    Then international break so would like a fairly settled side for next game and maybe likes of Jullien, Turnbull and even Griff to get some minute's in Perth..

    If we were to switch to a back 4 then I’d have him RW, he basically plays there anyway and would give us flexibility if we wanted to change formation in-game to a back 3.

    MOTM the past 2 games can’t be dropped.

    Aye agreed, but can see him playing Christie on the right if he's fit..

    Frimpong also took a fair amount of punishment today.

    We remain fragile along the back three although I think we're looking stronger with Duffy in. Ajer can be a nightmare at times

    Barkas

    Ajer Duffy Bitton

    Frimpong Brown McGregor Taylor

    Turnbull Elyounoussi

    Edouard


    Would start Brown for this and then rest him against St Johnstone at the weekend after his good performance today.

    Klimala, Ntcham, Christie (if available), Griff and Elhamed off the bench.

    Would like to try Elhamed at LWB at some point but this isn’t the game for experiments.
