Team’s Up – Edouard on bench as Ajeti starts

NEIL LENNON has named his team for today’s match versus Hibs at Easter Road. The manager has decided to make no changes for the vital match in Scotland’s capital with a strong team.

In goals, Barkas might have been expected to replace Scott Bain with the Greek Internationalist looking to settle following a slow start to life in Glasgow. However, Lennon has gone with Bain.

Kris Ajer returns and plays in defence beside Nir Bitton. Diego Laxalt will continue at left back with Jeremie Frimpong playing at right back.

In midfield, Scott Brown, Callum McGregor and Tom Rogic play as a midfield three. Ryan Christie continues after playing three games for Scotland with the manager. Moi Elyounoussi survived a COVID-19 scare whilst on international duty and has made the team having scored a hat-trick versus Motherwell before the break. He will be hoping to pick up where he left off today.

In attack, Albian Ajeti is preferred to Odsonne Edouard – who scored two goals for France during the international break.

On the bench: Barkas, Taylor, Duffy, Griffiths, Ntcham, Edouard, Elhamed, Klimala and Henderson.

Notably Stephen Welsh and David Turnbull are not involved after the news broke of a COVID-19 outbreak with Scotland’s U21s during the last few days.
