"There were aspects of the game that did disappoint me and I've made that clear to the players" - Neil Lennon
The Hoops are bidding to immediately bounce back from their disappointing weekend Scottish Communities League Cup semi-final defeat to St Mirren - a result which shattered their hopes of a domestic treble.

Goalkeeper Fraser Forster misses a fourth successive game as he continues his recovery from a neck injury.

"The players know that the standards they've set themselves over the last six-nine months, they didn't maintain on Sunday," manager Neil Lennon told BBC Scotland. "There were aspects of the game that did disappoint me and I've made that clear to the players. I'm looking for a good reaction."

Kilmarnock have latest signing Sammy Clingan available but he is currently lacking fitness and is unlikely to be involved.

Manager Kenny Shiels has already confirmed he will rest several experienced members of his squad and include a few youth-team players.
