    Another tough away fixture but hoping we have enough to get the all important 3pts.

    Expect 3-5-2 again.

    If we come through this with maximum point's we'll have done excellently since the break..

    Forster

    Ajer
    Jullien
    Jozo

    Forrest
    McGregor
    Rogic
    Christie
    Taylor

    Eddy
    Griff

    We'll get more space and on a grass pitch again. They'll have a go at us which should hopefully play in to our hands..

    Good to get back to the grass, suits us much better and Fir Park is now one of the best surfaces in the league.

    Are we expecting any players back from injury?

    Forster

    Jozo/Welsh
    Jullien
    Ajer

    Forrest
    McGregor
    Brown
    Ntcham
    Taylor/Hayes

    Griff
    Edouard




    Welsh had a solid debut today, looked confident and assured. Motherwell away would be another step up so Jozo may come back in.

    Would like to see Taylor retain his starting place but Lenny may opt for Hayes as it was clear today that Taylor can struggle to beat his man. On the flip side, he’s the best defensive LB we have.

    Would also be happy to see Christie or Rogic start but it shouldn’t be at the expense of dropping Ntcham. McGregor could be doing with a rest.

    Elyounoussi was supposed to be fit for the end of January so he may feature on the bench.

    Elhamed cant be far away as well surely? That’s him being out for over 2 months.

    They'll definitely have a go which suits us, as long as we don't have any howlers in defence...

    2-1 Celtic.

    I think we can rack up a good scoreline here, Motherwell have been great this season but have hit a bit of a slump recently, Livingston were all over them and should have beat them 3 or 4-0. I think we'll concede but i wouldn't be shocked if we win 3 or 4-1.

    I'd go

    Forster
    Ajer Walsh Jullien
    Forrest Brown Mcgregor Taylor
    Rogic
    Edouard Griffiths/Kilimala

    Harsh on Christie but i'd be looking to ease him back in, bring him on at 60 minutes with Soro.

    Massive, massive, midweek.

    Hope we can start getting some players back. Elhamed and Moi will make a huge difference when they’re fully fit.

    If Frimpong’s fit then 100% would go for that

    4 out of 5 league games away in this last block and hopefully full points confirmed on Wednesday . Fantastic response from December's game. Personally think we look such a better team domestically with 352.. can see rogic take off with a bit of form now .

    Like the look of that team mate, need a Rogic in these type of games that can unlock a team defence open with 1 exquisite pass, was only for about 3 games last year then Christie got injured but the 3 games they played together was 0-5 Dundee, 5-0 Hearts and 5-1 killie was best fitba we played all last season

    That’s a * of 5 games before the split isn’t it!

    if we can take 10 points from 15 I will be happy!

    would expect 12 points from the 4 home games but just reading there if league was to finish as it stands we would have to go to 2 of Hibs/motherwell/Livi for a third time away!
