The headline news is of course that Fraser Forster displaces Craig Gordon in the starting lineup, just days after arriving for his latest spell at the club.

Vakoun Bayo has a massive chance to impress too, making his first ever start.

Having won our opening two fixtures in the competition, another three points is the order of the day. With a tricky trip to Ibrox next week to face Rangers, it’s vital we carry as much positive momentum forward as possible.

However, with an important European match coming up on Thursday to contemplate, Lennon has rested a couple of key performers like Odsonne Edouard and Mikey Johnston.

It’s certainly an exciting and somewhat surprising eleven.

Hopefully it’s strong enough to get the job done against the Edinburgh side.

Plenty of fans are on board with Lennon’s decisions, with some particularly pleased about seeing Bayo in action.
