Anticipation is building as Jack Ross’ side get set to face off with St Johnstone at Hampden Park this Saturday in the Scottish Cup final.

For Hibs fans, memories of David Gray leaping like a salmon to head home a last minute winner against Rangers in the glorious Glasgow sunshine are still fresh in the memory, and after near some near misses in the not so distant past, Hibees are hoping that the sunshine will once again shine upon Leith this weekend, even if fans are unable to attend.

A huge game requires a bold and brave team selection and while some players will be guaranteed a start this weekend, there’s still a selection dilemma for Jack Ross. Does he go with Darren McGregor or Ryan Porteous? Is Matt Macey the man to play between the sticks, or does Ofir Marciano get a chance to sign his Easter Road career off with a trophy?

We asked our fans via our dedicated Hibs Facebook page which 11 they would send into battle, and this is what they said.
