The wild card is that they won't know what to expect from us - not just how we'll set up, bet even who'll be in our team. We scarcely know ourselves! So the element of surprise may be on our side.
I'm not going to write this off, we may get something. But for once, the points are less important than finding a starting XI, a formation, and a way of playing that works. I'm looking for a performance, some new players bedding in, signs of confidence, and some indications that we'll do better in the more important games ahead. This is almost a warm-up game for the 6-pointer v Partick next week.
I expect we'll see the Sarris-Tomas partnership back in central defence, and I want to see that work; I'm looking for Van Der Weg to give us the same sort of strength and threat on the left as Skondras brings on the right (which is not to rubbish McMann, but he needs a break); I'm looking for Ferguson to step up, Scott to step in, and someone (Kozo?) to show a bit of creative flair from midfield; and I'm looking for Templeton to rediscover a bit of form and make a decent partner for whoever we play up top. If we get most of that, I could accept a narrow defeat. As long as our players walk off the park with their heads held high.
Skondras Thomas Gogic Van De Weg
Imrie Crawford Ferguson + 1 of the new guys (Redmond was really poor at Aberdeen)
