Should be a tough game for us today, hopefully come away with 3 points but 1 would do us from a good St Js team.

Will it be same team as last week or will Lennon make changes.

C'mon the Hibs :flag:

Strong team and bench. Playing the old 'boyle's doubtful' trick. Having him one wing and barker the other looks dangerous.

Hopefully Hibs don't give the opposition a goal of a start this week. Hibs really need to score first to take anything today.

A draw wouldn't be a bad result against a decent team on their own ground. A win would be superb.

Happy with that, although I do still prefer Lewis at LB, particularly when there's a winger in front of him and he can concentrate more on defending.

Delighted to see Boyle back. With Barker on the other side we can do what no-one else has done for a while (maybe Celtic?), and that is, pull them wide. Their defence is good when they are compact, let's see how they do when they are pulled out.

Wonder why Lewis is not playing again?

A victim of our captain and one of the summer marquee signings being full backs.

I'm excited by that line up, Whittaker can be our best attacking option whereas Lewis can get into good positions and then slow play down. I'm thinking O'Halleran plays down their left and matching him up against SDG is a good idea

Unfortunately for him he's behind a current Scottish international in the queue for a game. Doesn't mean he's done anything wrong, just that he's not as good as him.

would prefer for stevenson to be playing left back and whittaker dropped to the bench, especially with us starting 2 wingers he would provide better cover defensively and can concentrate on just being a defender up against a good st johnstone team. apart from that like the rest of the lineup

I don't think Whittaker has shown anything in the games he's played to suggest he should be keeping either Gray or Stevenson out the team. Whittaker should be on the bench at the moment imo.

Disagree ... far more composed on ball and distribution is far better and creative tha both.

However I do have occasional concerns re his sometimes lacsidaisical attitude to get out to cut out the cross ball

If we're going to get in the top 3 then at times we're going to have to be bold and this lineup, against one of our rivals for those places, is a good sign of intent that we are going to be bold. Lewis is a good left back but SW is just a better attacking player in my opinion and gives us added goal threat while probably expecting SDG to be fully pinned down looking after their form player

Does every time someone gets dropped need an explanation? There will be changes through out the season. Whittaker provides a lot more going forward and his distribution is what gets him in the team IMO.

Lewis has done nothing to deserve being dropped IMO.I tend to agree. However when the window closed and I looked at the depth and quality of the squad we had with the likes of Porteous coming through and thought there'd be times like this when players will be rotated which will help us in the long run perhaps.

It's also Lennons shout about who best fits his tactics for a particular game. We'll see today. I suspect his decision re Lewis today is tactical only.

He got dropped after the Hamilton game and nobody could complain about getting dropped after that. We played well at Dundee so wouldn't have expected much to change.

Exactly. Lewis had a poor game against Hamilton and lets be honest he has barely had a rest in about 3 seasons. Played virtually every game. So, regardless of his form, an extended rest would be good - also strengthens competition.

Hibs don't seemt to be coping as well with the step up as we'd hoped. As mentioned by others, you have to take your chances as this level.

Same problem as the last 3 years, endless chances but not enough converted.


EDIT: Oh well, if the opposition score them for us, it's not so bad ;-)

Well, that means we have adapted quite well to he strength of the opposition.

If one more had gone in against Dundee and if we do go on to win here, will prove we are coping.

Stats currently showing Hibs at 68% possession, 11 corners (Saints 2), 6 shots on target (Saints 1), 9 shots off target (Saints 3).
Not half bad away to the team that have finished 4th in the premier league the last 2 years.
We're hardly not coping. Just need to be a bit more clinical.

A game similar to last week where on possession and chances we really should be winning the game. Just not scoring the goals though, an O.G saving our bacon again.

Plus an away game to Ross County where we also had loads of chances but couldn't score.
