SPL leaders Celtic are in Saturday lunchtime action at Kilmanock this weekend (kick-off 12.30pm) and seeking to extend their advantage at the top of the table.

"I am looking for a good performance and I'm sure I will get that" - Neil Lennon
The visitors are likely to be missing right-back Mikael Lustig while forward Kris Commons has already been ruled out after both collected knocks during the midweek Champions league victory over Spartak Moscow.

However, midfielder Victor Wanyama is available again having completed a one-match ban, but Anthony Stokes, Paddy McCourt and James Forrest remain sidelined alongside Venezuelan striker Miku.

"We want to be consistent in the league and obviously work at our home form in the league in terms of improving that," manager Neil Lennon told Celtic's official website. "Our away form has been good and it will be a tough one as Kilmarnock beat us at Celtic Park last time we played, so I am looking for a good performance and I'm sure I will get that with the players being on such a high from the other night."

Kilmarnock are without Manuel Pascali as he completes a two-game suspension while Liam Kelly and Garry Hay are training again but unlikely to be involved.
