There are three changes to the starting XI that defeated Hamilton Accies 3-0 on Boxing Day. The biggest news is that Vasilis Barkas returns to the side, while there’s places in the back-line for Christopher Jullien and Diego Laxalt.

@RobbieElz: “Lenny testing Barkas character today. Not because he is getting a shot to play but because of the weather. Seriously would it not have been better to continue with hazard keep building confidence?”

@capomendoza: “Well, Barkas gets another chance to show that he is a sound, trustworthy keeper. There has been no sign of that until now, but you never know.”
