Armand Gnanduillet partners Liam Boyce in attack and Andy Irving is back with Steven Naismith and Gervane Kastaneer dropping out. Jamie Walker is on the bench.

@ThisMyStoryPod: “Not convinced this is a change of shape. I reckon McEneff or Halliday are playing wide with Boyce as the 10. For there to have been a change of shape it would be an acknowledgement of the 4231 not working or suiting our players. As much as I’d be buzzing if it was, I just can’t see it. I hope am wrong. Mon the Gorgie.”

@NJJarvie: “Really think McEneff could be unleashed today without Naismith playing in front of him. Irving back in too.”

@Liamr1874: “Interesting glad to see we’re finally playing with 2 up top.

@ozjambo51: “Thoughts. You wonder what Halliday has to do to get dropped. Good to see Irving. No Walker again? I'm not usually a fan of 4 4 2 but given how poor we are in the wide areas we don't really have much of a choice.”

@scottstevenson_: “I can only assume Jamie Walker isn't fit enough for a full 90 just now, better using that energy off the bench I guess.”

@RaymondGrant: “2 up front & folk are still moaning.”

@Masterton9: “Walker on the bench again? If he’s not carrying an injury then that’s a joke.”

@TheOldCastleRo1: “Nando and Boyce, great. Reasonably happy with this.”

@Amoruso1998: “No Charlie Adam for them which is a positive. For us would be great to see Irving at base of diamond perhaps with Halliday and McEneff driving forward and GMS playing in a free role to allow FB to provide width.”

@CraigTgolf17: “Actually a decent team that any chance of just putting in a decent performance today.”

@ellsmith1203: “I think some players are better coming off the bench, and I think that’s the situation with Waker.”

@Paphos_16: “No tippy, tappy, backwards, sideways, aimless passes today please. Up and at them from the first whistle till the last with maximum effort, desire and passion.”

@Mattlawson_6: “Starting with 5/6 defensive players at home Walker again on the bench, what does the guy need to do to start? Surely we should be starting with a strong attacking team, scoring goals and taking the game to them, instead of so defensive?”
