    Like to see a few changes and go back to 352, we need to make use of the squad but can’t imagine we’ll make many changes since we’re lacking match sharpness.

    Cannae wait for this now. Wish we'd come steaming out the blocks and try and destroy teams in the first half. Sunday was a * of a day and then that result was ill. Only consolation is its so early but that's also one of the reasons its so frustrating haha.

    After Livingston last season and Kilmarnock on Sunday teams have their tactics laid out in how to play against us so we need to start moving the ball quicker and stop allowing them time to reset their 10 behind the ball. St Mirren will probably use the same tactics on Wednesday so we need to be up to it from the start

    Every game is a cup final for us now .. long season but we don't wanna give Gerrard any oxegen or confidence . For me livi away for them they this Sunday they are dropping points but I think they get buoyed by yesterday and now I can see a winner going in deflected of ittens *

    I’d prefer Bitton in defence ahead of Ajer.

    Whilst I like that line up, I think Ncham deserves a start before Soro.
    Also would like to see Ely get a rest.

    Start with Ncham and Taylor. If needed hook Taylor for Boli. Swap Ncham with Christie and bring on Soro.
    Despite very little transfer activity we have the resources, but we need to use them.

    The points is all that matters, but really hope we see a performance, especially after yesterday's horror show.

    Hopefully we see a much more creative performance as well as the points on Wednesday. We were just so flat and slow in the final third Sunday.

    St Mirren are decent defensively so we can expect more of the same that we seen from Killie. We have to show the speed and creativity to break them down.

    I want to see 3-5-2 and the sooner Leigh Griffiths gets fit and back in the team to partner Eddy up front the better. Tom Rogic is the only truly creative midfielder we have but he will not play, our creativity comes from Eddy and Griffiths' link up play. People can say all the negative things they like about Griffiths as a professional and some of it is correct but it was seen many times that no defence in Scotland could handle Griffiths and Eddy coming up at them. Its a winning formula and we need to get back to that ASAP.

    Soro’s style of play will be great against teams that try and sit in, he drives with the ball and gets the team forward. I like Ntcham but he’s best in the no.10 position rather than battling in the middle.

    If Taylor starts then I’d start Forrest, but Taylor plays best with someone ahead of him that’s my only worry about him at wing back plus lack of pace.

    Centre back, winger and striker then we’ll be sorted.

    Just praying this goes ahead now. Will be buggered if we've to watch the huns go 5-8 points clear because we have postponed fixtures. Not the kind of narrative we want.
