This will be my first game of the season. How we'll line up depends on our injury issues - if Meekings is fit again then you'd assume he'll come back alongside Devine as our central defensive pairing with Draper moving into the midfield at the expense of Polworth. Williams is apparently doing a decent job at full-back, which is promising as we really need attacking full-backs to give us width.

Being away to Celtic I can see Hughes maybe playing it a bit cooler, perhaps putting James Vincent in the team to give us a bit more solidity in the middle. Iain Vigurs made an impact when he came but his fitness needs a bit of work. His set pieces could be useful at Celtic Park, having Tansey and Vigurs as right and left footed free kick specialists gives us a good option in that regard.

Lopez is taking pelters for his performances for us. I haven't seen him so will reserve judgement but we really are short up front. The only other fit striker we have is Ali Sutherland, who is 18.

You'd have to assume that Celtic will win this. I'll be happy if we show some threat going forward and score a goal or two.

If we play the First XI that we'll play against Malmo, we should win easily. If we rest players/rotate it could be another struggle like last night

Delia will not want to risk injuries to key players just days before the most important game of your season so far. The Malmo game will define your season a lot more than playing this game against Inverness. I'm sure the Celtic board will be reminding Delia that beating Malmo over the two legs will earn Celtic millions and will certainly earn Celtic a huge game against one or two of the seeded teams like Barcelona or Chelsea in the group stages.

I fully expect a second string Celtic side to play us who will still be too strong for our patchwork makeshift team.

No first choice XI players should be playing for Celtic this weekend, except Craig Gordon.

Apparently Scott Allan will be Celtic player by Saturday, so maybe he'll get a game.
