Well we should have been looking forward to a match with Dundee Utd tonight however due to a poor home performance we find ourselves in a Scottish Cup replay against Arbroath (take yer thermals)
Joe Ledley and Kris Commons are ruled out while Gary Hooper may be a doubt as he did not train yesterday. Another draw back is that tonight will not be a night for silky football. We passed that chance up at Celtic Park playing on a great surface. I would expect the pitch at Gayfield will be hard so it may be a night for long balls and runners.
I think we can afford to play 3 at the back similar to Saturdays system as I expect Broony and Victor to boss the midfield. I’m sure the Gaffer has made it perfectly clear that he will not tolerate a repeat performance of the first game.
Tonight the players will have to show grit and determination and I would hope the game is finished as a contest by half time. However you never know but I suppose you never know till the game starts.
Mon the hoops
No disrespect to Arbroath but we should be looking at at least a 2 goal win.
