NEIL LENNON has kept the side the same as the one that started against Aberdeen in Saturday. That means Mikey Johnston will have to content himself with a place on the bench as James Forrest continues down the left wing and Ryan Christie out on the left. Olivier Ntcham will start as the number 10 position and this looks very much like the team that will face the Rangers on Sunday provided they take care of St Mirren today.
Three points are absolutely essential against the Saints to set us up for another Beautiful Sunday!
Fraser Forster as usual has the gloves while the back four is the same as played in the 2-1 win over Aberdeen last Saturday. Jeremie Frimpong is at right back, the central defenders are Kristoffer Ajer and Christopher Jullien and Boli Bolingoli starts at left back.
Skipper Scott Brown and Callum McGregor are in their usual number 6 and 8 roles and Olivier Ntcham is also in the team as the Number 10. That means Ryan Christie is on the right, James Forrest on the left and Odsonne Edouard leading the line.
The line-up looks like this for the St Mirren challenge.
Frimpong Ajer Jullien Bolingoli
Christie Ntcham Forrest
Subs are Gordon, Taylor, Bitton, Bauer, Rogic, Johnston and Griffiths.
Kick-off is at 3pm.
