    Both centre backs Jack Hendry and Boyata haven't travelled to Lithuania today so yet another makeshift defence tomorrow night against Suduva.

    Gordon

    Luistig Ajer Simunovic

    Forrest Ntcham Brown Tierney

    Rogic McGregor

    Dembele

    A tie we should be winning but I'm not sure if they are better these days or the way the draw works has been kind to them. With our defence, anything is possible.

    Hopefully go out and make a statement tonight.

    I imagine Dembele will start tonight which will be a big plus for us.

    Dembele could do with staying fit for most of the season tbh. He's a big player for us when he's fit and on form but he gets too many injuries.

    You saw the complete difference in us when he came on in Athens, like you say I really hope he can keep his fitness.

    Glad to see Gamboa start, he is a better option than Lustig now.

    Team looks a bit more solid than it did against AEK and hopefully Johnstone can be the one to open up their defence.

    Hopefully the defence can keep a clean sheet and get a bit of confidence up.

    With Gamboa playing it gives us an option on the right to be more direct coming out from defence, I think that's the way to play instead of knocking it between the two CBs.

    We've played really well and have totally dominated from start to finish.

    We're one of very few teams that could put a 45 minutes in like that and go in 1-1 at half time.

    Yet again a bombscare goal to give away, that apart we've done really well

    Everything seems to be going wrong for us just now at the back. Even though we're not good enough there, I would guess that the goals to shot ratio against us so far this season is a new world record. We have completely dominated this game from the first whistle and should be at least 3 up. I still think we'll win tonight and possibly by a few.

    This mob are probably the level of Livingston but you don't have to be a good team to score against us, just put a half decent ball in the box.

    Another centre back out, it's unbelievable the luck we carry.

    Another cut back... Another Suduva chance. We simply can't clear any ball into the box.

    I spent a lot of that match trying to work out what level that Suduva team would be at in Scotland. I’m guessing lower SPL or higher championship.

    Either way, we should be beating them by two or three, but we were ridiculously wasteful all through the game. The goal we lost is normal for us and overall we just don’t look convincing.

    We threaten to look good but it’s just not materialising at the moment. In saying that we really should have little problem with them in the second leg.
