Sterling losing the ball twice as a result of the tattie field surface.

Sterling deserves a chance to settle. He's been here for 5 mins for fuck sake.  That was rotten today. We have absolutely no creativity at all. Something needs to change or we will be relegated. 

We don't have any Championship level centre forwards, it would be extremely kind to call our defenders error-prone, and without McAlister, Lyon or Jacobs we have a finished 37 year old and two League

I wonder what Raith team will turn up tomorrow the one that likes the astro or the one that is allergic to grass? Hopefully we get to see our Champions League player at some point in the game ideally scoring a late winner.

Kaz Sterling anytime imo. Genuinely no idea what to expect from this but we could really, really do with shitfesting a win given the games coming up.

McBookie offering 13/10 on that. Which is a shanner of an odd tbh.

I'd go for:

McAdams

Ledger - McLean - Fjortoft - Strapp

Jacobs (Millar if not fit) - Lyon

Nesbitt - Oliver - Colville

Sterling

McGinty has given away all three goals we've conceded in the last two games having previously looked a different player to last season. A McLean- Fjortoft partnership needs a shot, although I don't expect to see it with McGinty getting the captaincy.

I don't think Millar or Blues should be starting games but if Jacobs is still out it'll have to be Millar.

On paper those are clearly our strongest options for the three behind the striker, but Nesbitt has had two shockers in a row and could have no complaints with being dropped for this. The problem is that of the alternatives to be added to that midfield three, McGuffie, Muirhead and Salkeld have done little to justify a start in their appearances either, then you're left with Wallace who hasn't played a minute in the league, and Omar who admittedly hasn't played in that role which is supposedly his best position, but has been miles out of his depth in every appearance.

Aye no chance McGinty will be dropped and 2bf he has been generally good this season, albeit a few mistakes recently. Him and Marcus for me. 

Issue for me is none of the 4/5 wide men have shown any sort of form. All have had some game time recently and no one has impressed. Really need them to up their game otherwise Sterling will get very frustrated very quickly with the lack of service.

Jacobs and Lyon to sit with Oliver in the hole is the obvious middle 3 but Jacobs has played 8 minutes in the last 8 weeks so doubt he will be ready. Millar did well last week so let him stay in there.

We really need a win here, can't see us getting much out of ICT and Hearts away and Dundee at home. If we lose this, it's a relegation battle with Arbroath and Alloa.

All in with a Doyle Brunson

Is Lyon injured? 

See Jacobs is on the bench. 

There's a storm on the horizon

And for that I can't see the sun

For I'll keep a waiting on the pavement

For the ice cream van to come

That was far too easy.

McGhee needs some support, there's no-one backing him up.
Hayes playing it forward, Bell being forced to do it all alone, now forward from Marr, here's Ritchie, still Andy Ritchie, look at the control...

That is a marvellous goal from Andy Ritchie. Twenty minutes on the clock and Morton's supporters come alive. A goal which epitomises the control, the arrogance, the cheek of Andy Ritchie.

The effort’s there, just such a lack of quality going forward. We’d struggle for goals in League 1.

Nesbitt’s passing lately has been dire.
