Dont fear us playing anyone at the moment.

Killie are on a good run but so are we.

Would bring Campbell back in for Kipre and move McHugh to a back 3.

2-1 to the good guys with Cadds and Nads on the score sheet.

McHugh can't play in a back 3 and Jones will run by him all day long .This is where the manager earns his money,for me you put Charles on the right and bring in Hendrie on the left or go to a back four wth McHugh in the sweeper role and leave Tait and Charles in the full back positions .

This is a massive game in terms of top 6. We need the 3 points badly and i just feel we can get them.

McHugh sweeper and Aldred moving over is the obvious change. Or we might change to a four at the back as Kilie will be looking to push Jones up the park to nulify Cadden.

For right or wrong I doubt we'll see McHugh dropping back. Afaik Robinson hasn't done it at all this season and only did so last year out of necessity.

We should fully expect Hendrie to start next game. It's why we signed him. Cadden has previously nullified Jones and expect him to be given a similar role.

 

With both sides well organised at present, this is going to be tight. Too close to call.

Without big Cedric I think we should go wth a back 4, Tait, McHugh, Aldred and Dunne. Cadden and Frear wide in midfield roles would also allow us to get cover in the full back areas, especially down our right against Jones.

Fwiw I think Killie will have slightly too much for us. Close game but our makeshift defence and their quality in midfield will give them an edge. 1-2.

I never band about the phrase "must win" unless it's a mathematical fact (Unlike some posters here who say it in the 2nd week of September). I'm making this game an exception.

 

I think there's only one spot up for grabs in the top 6 and the momentum is well and truly with Killie. With 3 points behind us and 3 games in hand I do think we've got to take full points from this game to have any chance of the top 6.

He played mchugh in central defence in the 3-2 defeat by Thistle, however you are right in principle in that he did say at the AGM he feels that weakens midfield and he is not happy doing it so I imagine he will look at other solutions.

Personally i think if it is a back 3 it will be Aldred Dunne Hendrie, however we played a back 4 at Rugby Park of Tait Kipre Dunne and Hammell. Wouldnt be surprised if he went Tait Aldred Dunne Hendrie.....time will tell

Killie have been a revelation since Clarke took over but weve hit a bit of form since the winter break also.

With Kipre suspended and Hartley injured our backline is severely weakened, Campbell may be out still also, I fear that Killie will have too much.

You never know though.
"In his book, "Rogue State: A Guide to the World's Only Superpower," William Blum warns of how the media will make anything that smacks of "conspiracy theory" an immediate "object of ridicule." This prevents the media from ever having to investigate the many strange interconnections among the ruling class -- for example, the relationship between the boards of directors of media giants, and the energy, banking and defense industries. These unmentionable topics are usually treated with what Blum calls "the media's most effective tool -- silence." But in case somebody's asking questions, all you have to do is say, "conspiracy theory," and any allegation instantly becomes too frivolous to merit serious attention. On the other hand, since my paranoid shift, whenever I hear the words "conspiracy theory" (which seems more often, lately) it usually means someone is getting too close to the truth."

Killie play Dundee midweek so hopefully there will be some weariness in them legs come Saturday at 3pm.

They build wins upon keeping it tight and have only won by more than a 1 goal margin twice in the league since October (both against Partick).
So, if we can score a couple we should be fine.

As someone said, we are in good form too so I expect us to compete and at least come away with a point.

Im back for this game. I think well go to a back four with Cedric out. Hopefully Campbell is back because him vs Mulumbu should be a cracking battle.
We all have our choices, these are what make man great, his ladder to the stars

Looking at the fixtures I tend to think you might be right.

 

With the Old Firm and St Johnstone in Perth as our pre-split finale at first glance it doesn't appear the easiest of run-ins and if we have any aspirations of a top half finish you would want to accumulate as many points as you possibly can ahead of those games.  

 

You would also want to, in fact scrub that, you really have take advantage of the opportunity that comes with facing a direct competitor on your home patch such as Kilmarnock on Saturday.  Failure to do so is going to leave us with a lot to do in some very tricky fixtures.

Killie are going to be playing twice a week for the next few weeks. I think that has a good chance of denting their good run of form. Many twists and turns yet in the battle for that 6th spot.

Agreed, absolutely massive game. Given Robinson's will to win I'm sure we'll be right up for it.

Gonna say 1-0 to us, Curtis Main with the goal.

Has anyone heard of Peter Hartley's scan result on his foot, I assume it is not good news as we would have heard if it was good news!!
