That carpet plus their players booting anything that moves worries me a bit. Hopefully we can get a couple of early goals and put this one to bed quickly.

Professional football shouldn’t be allowed on garbage pitches like this one

I'm banking on Alfie to do the business. He's one player that never seem to struggle on these pitches. Does anyone know who Livi will play instead of McCrorie (assuming he can't play).

We’ve had a good start to the season and because of the behaviour of the Aberdeen players and one Celtic player we have the chance to open up a sizeable gap.

But that’s all it is, a chance.

We have to play every single game as if we are chasing the Tim’s.

We definitely have the skill and personnel to win most games but only if the attitude is right.

Look after ourselves first and worry about them when we play them.

Win every game is always our stance.

we’re better than all the rest.

More than ever, every game feels like a cup final.

I really don’t care about anything else for that 90 mins but getting 3 points.

Feel we've all been here before, but i'm starting to feel genuinely confident before games. Comfortable 2 or 3 nil. We're starting to click, and that lot are the ones under pressure.

Killie away and Hibs are gonna be the acid test this year. Not Livi. We should be far too strong for the rest this year.

Still hate watching the games on tv, I'm a fuqing looney in front of it, even the dog looks at me as if to say "you're an idiot". Sometimes just go out for a walk instead but at the same time dread missing it!

It'll be a battle. One I think we are equipped to deal with.

Bit of a wildcard opinion, but I think we'll see Itten in for Hagi. Itten has experience playing on plastic pitches in Switzerland. Helander starts for me, don't see the point in chucking Edmundson in up against Dykes, having not played in the last three games. Helander struggled in his first game there but breezed his second trip and handled Dykes with relative ease.

Aribo with his bulkier build and new found confidence must be chomping at the bit to dish out a bit of retribution after his first visit there in the cup last season.

I wouldn't risk Roofe on that pitch. Alfie gets the nod and I trust him to get goals, he likes a goal or two against Livi.

Whatever happens, 3 points, no injuries and a comfortable display. Time for us to stop fretting about these teams and these types of trips. We have a far better squad, we have a more varied squad (midfield aside) and we don't have any excuses to drop points there. We've won there in our last three games, the pitch isn't an excuse anymore. Livi have been in dreadful form of late and even though I expect them to up their game considerably, we should still have way too much for them to cope with.

We've gone to Livingston in the past, moved the ball with authority, dictated for the most part and smashed them.

They will be up for it on a poor surface but we will equally be up for it.

We've been given an opportunity to put points on the board before the bheggars kick a ball again - it's time we put that marker down after seasons of failing to do so.

Hibs smashed 4 past them at the Tony Macaroni.

Looking forward to see how we continue to develop on the park and how we deal with the opportunity of pulling away.

Obviously they will set up differently against us than Hibs, but we've won our last 2 league visits there very comfortably and have nothing to fear.

2 or 3 nil for me.

Keep the clean sheets coming.

Living are a dig in team on the worst park in league,and it's a game I keep an eye on for the dims as a point dropper,massive 3 points to get of a shitty team.
It will be a very hard game any kind of a win will do me and hopefully no injuries on that shite pitch.

Morelos plays well on the plastic and is still our most physical forward.

Arfield for Hagi is a possibility on that pitch.

I don't see the formation changing.

I think if Hagi drops out it's more likely to be Arfield who'll come in than Itten mate.

Arfield will be more comfortable playing behind Alfredo than Itten.

The big man is very much a striker.

I'm actually a tad nervous. I admit to being a serial panty wetter every time we step onto one of those plastic abominations. Not only result wise, but the threat of injury to a vital player that has befallen us in the past on plastic pitches.
Having said that, our form and the multiple goal threat from across the team is exciting and the games can't come fast enough.

Watching us over the last three league games I'm hoping for a bit of Bayern Munich ruthlessness about us. Gerrard mentioned more goals after St. Mirren and he wasn't exactly delighted after the second half showing in midweek - rightfully so.

Saying that, 1-0 tomorrow goes a long way, as does any win.
