Celtic will attempt to press on at the top of the table when hosting Ross County at Parkhead on Saturday afternoon.

"It's a game I want to win and try to widen the gap at the top" - Neil Lennon
Welsh international midfielder Joe Ledley misses out with a groin injury but winger James Forrest may come back from hamstring trouble.

Elsewhere, forward duo Kris Commons (thigh) and Anthony Stokes (ankle) both remain on the sidelines.

"I thought we played well against St Mirren - probably as well as we have played for a while at home," manager Neil Lennon told BBC Scotland. "We are in a good vein of form, the boys are training well.

"Ross County are having a terrific season. They have got goals in them, they have no fear of playing anybody," he continued. "But it's a game I want to win and try to widen the gap at the top. We are four wins on the bounce and I want to keep that going."

The visitors are without the services of midfielder Martin Scott due to an ankle injury while there are also a few other doubts through illness.
