I'm usually reluctant to label any game a "must-win", but the way other games turned out, it was just as well we won.
An odd selection, I thought, but who knows who's playing with a wee niggle? After ringing the changes at Celtic Park, I thought we'd see more like the team before that, which it almost was - I liked the replacement of Lyon with Redmond in the starting XI, but not so much Bingham for Rojano, although Rakesh did well to be fair. Surprised no place on the bench for Gillespie, which now means he comes in cold for Skondras, unless Lyon gets the nod at right wing back.
I thought we were the better side in the first half, worth our lead, and with more luck in front of goal could have scored again and put it out of reach for County. Give them their due, they came back second half, we lost our way a bit, and it became a slugfest. Decisions didn't seem to go our way, but we lost our shape, got bogged down, and nearly ended up drawing a game we should always have won.
Redmond did well, very combative. Docherty is off the boil, but always gives 100% work-rate. I think Rojano will start again after today - Templeton certainly seems to work better with him, and both of them carry a real goal threat. MacKinnon and Imrie know how to win a game like today's. And great to see Ally back.
