If Stephen Robinson wasn't the problem and we have a good quality squad, can someone please explain exactly how we ended up where we are?

If you ever work it out, you'll make a fortune. It happens in leagues across the world where even the same core squad with the same manager will do well one season and crash the next.

Once the rot sets in it's difficult to turn it around as a lot of it is psychological. In the same way, when you are on a roll, and can't stop winning.

Full game is on BBC Alba at 6:00pm for anyone who wants to avoid the score and watch it “live”.

Just take a look at Sheffield utd. Done very well last year but can hardly even score now. Wee bit of luck can make a big difference one way or the other

The BBC reports that Long and Carson are doubtful, which would indicate that the latter's injury is not as bad as we first feared. Should he fail to make it who will be our substitute goalie?

Aaron Chapman hopefully with PJ Morrison recalled. I wouldn't be risking Carson on that pitch today. Would probably say the same for Carroll at this point in his recovery. 

I'd be inclined to go with

Morrison

O'Donnell Mugabi Gallagher McGinlay Grimshaw 

Campbell Maguire Crawford 

Cole Watt

Frankly a poor looking lineup but with Carson and Carroll not worth risking, Donnelly injured and Polworth out of form, it's all that's available. Lamie, White, Seedorf and Hastie can all go as far as I'm concerned...

I'd play Hastie - I know he's not a fans favourite for many reasons but we need width and he offers that.   He and Polworth are the only players likely to offer anything creative in midfield (until we get new signings )

Doubt we’ll see Lamie.

I’m sure they will find something for him to do. After all someone needs to carry the kit.

I don’t know if a frosty plastic pitch is the right setting but Hastie should get one more run out before he is jettisoned.  Maybe wait till he is up against Tait next week.

I don’t have high expectations for today given how tricky a venue this tends to be. However, I’m intrigued to see if Lasley’s shape and personnel is noticeably different from what we’ve seen in recent weeks.

On early sign of Lasley's suitability for job will be if he selects Lammie.  If he does, afraid he rules himself out right away.

Could be 442 with grimshaw on the right of midfield, or 433 with grimshaw in a 3, or 3 at the back with o'donnell moving in one. I'll go with option 2.

Callum Lang missing, is he injured? Someone suggested the other night he was being recalled by Wigan.

limited options - it was either Mugabi, Lamie or McGinley  .

The other option is Maguire
