    The set play thing is my big fear for this game they are a big team and we are not. I can see them scoring from a corner or freekick.

    What we need to do is take the game to them from the off and get in front whilst doing so. The game at Christmas there we should have been a couple up and were dominant for the opening half. We tired Bitton got sent off and managed to get beat without conceding a shot on target.

    Taking our chances and cutting out the howlers will be vital tomorrow. I fully expect if we get a result we will be stronger post the international break with time for some new players to come in and familiarise themselves.

    Obviously hoping we turn them over but given the way this season has went so far and the improvements we’ve made I wouldn’t be too upset with a draw.

    Hart

    Ralston Starfelt Welsh Taylor/Monty

    Turnbull McGregor Christie

    Abada Edouard Kyogo

    3-2 to the famous Glasgow Celtic. Christie, Kyogo and Abada

    I haven't seen them do that this season.

    Yeah it's notable that we are quite a small team and with the refs you know they will always get free kicks. Big square heid scored directly off a corner in their last league game and it something we are going to need to stand up to.

    Well it's just about all they do. Get it wide and fling in crosses. If you watched any of the Malmö 2nd leg it was raining crosses in to their box. They scored off a corner in their last league game as well and it's something they put a big emphasis on, especially against us bcos we've been so bad at dealing with it.

    After Thursday think this is our best team. Sounds like Ange might play Taylor and Juranovic though. We need all the height and heading ability we can get for Sunday for corners and set plays so we should stick with Ralston.

    Strange feeling about this game. Only way I see them winning is with the refs help.

    We battered them in most games last season without winning and that was them at their best.

    Wouldn't be to displeased with a draw but if we come out flying and get a couple of early goals they will crumble.

    Having said that our defense still terrifies me.

    1-3 Celtic

    Something deep inside tells me this will be another 5-1 to us.

    Similar to what I would go with. Maybe Forrest instead of Abada to offer a bit more cover then Abada on later to run at tired legs but pretty much spot on I would say.

    Win, lose or draw the scum will be guaranteed the not so subtle assistance of the officials.

    I know Ange said we might get Forrest and McCarthy back but not really expecting that to be honest. I'm with Ange in that tomorrow our best defence is attack. 2 early goals to get them right on the backfoot and take it from there :50:. Not going to be dull as others have said.

    I would go with your team except maybe put Juranovic in at left back. Quality international player, he should be able to adapt and play there. Although not a long term solution.

    They basically scored 0 times against us in 2 matches. Avoid any own goals and it'll be the same tomorrow.

    It's that last bit we might struggle with. I do have to give credit to Starfelt, his own goal was up there with the best of them. It was like he had spent hours practising it! I know I shouldn't but I couldn't help but laugh.

    100/1 on a 1-5

    Why not, they have a depleted squad and we have goals all over the park in the league

    The depleted squad thing is a myth, outside of the mental keeper and Kent they are more or less full strength.

    Which I'm happy about I don't want them to have any excuses if we * them.

    They won’t be depleted maximum one or two players different but they will use it as an excuse once we pump them 3-0
