It's been while since we played well and we will need to raise our game for this one. 5 at the back may allow them to push us back and not allow us the chance to attack their main weakness- defence. Their record at Ibrox is good so we can't underestimate the task. Daz is a huge miss but Ali and Docherty can hopefully fill the gap.

451 for me doesn't leave us so narrow in midfield and we can't kid ourselves that we will defend all balls into the box as we did on Tuesday.

I'd go:
Woods or Matthews
Adams Sarris Devlin McMann
Donati
Docherty Gillespie Crawford Imrie
Bingham
Hopefully everyone gets right behind the team from the off. Even if the ticket sales have been poor, let's get the away end rocking.

I like Bingham but he can not play up top by his self. he cant hold the ball up or win headers. Brophy would be a better choice.

Yeah, Brophy can definitely hold it up and win headers :? It's a choice between Bingham and Brophy, so Bingham has to start. I'd much rather D'Acol though.

Absolutely right. Up on his own he needs to look to run into the channels and behind their defence; as he isn't the best at holding up. That said the midfield need to support him quickly.

As said..Brophy can't hold anything up, usually not even himself, falls on his arse far too much. Neither the strength or pace yet to compete with most defenders.


woods
adams sarris devlin mcmann
gillespie donati redmond
Crawford
Bingham D'Acol

Not a formation we've used previously, think it's a good balance of pace and creativity.

Bingham has to start for me aswell. He isn't great but his pace alone could terrify Clint Hill and whoever plays along side him. Hopefully we actually try to play some decent balls for him though instead of constant lumps up to him.

Think we will be in for a repeat of Tuesday night. Suspension hitting us, too many players coming back that are not fully match fit, 50 000 rangers fans screaming abuse, Rangers probably needing to at least get to semis, more than Accies, to save their season, Its gonna be a long nail biting day.

If we score first there will be a little ray of light but if they score early....

Not a chance. Lucky if there will be 35,000 Rangers fans screaming abuse.

I missed Easter Road, the win at Celtic Park and the 3-0 win over Aberdeen that took us four points clear at the top. I can't make tomorrow. Just saying.

I missed the Celtic game but took them to at 11/1 but went to the other 2 games. I've got accies at 17/2 tomorrow and not going. Just saying.

48 minutes gone, 2-0 Rangers, games a bogey. Yet another goal from a corner.

Least we can concentrate on trying to stay up

Here's the thing. If we'd lost that 2 or 3 nil, after the poor decisions against us and because we'd been pushing up to try and get back in to the game then fine. Be annoyed, take it on the chin, and move on.

But to totally give up and conceed four goals in the last 13 minutes, is disgraceful. Embarassing even.

Martin Canning has to go. If he's not capable of firing his team up at half-time, 1-0 down in a quarter final with video evidence that we were perhaps dealt a raw deal, then what will it take for him to fire his team up.

Poor performance again and shocking decisions didn't help. Thought the setup was right other than playing Imrie on his wrong side to accommodate the atrocious and disinterested Kurtaj.

We ran out of steam at best and gave up at worst and the change to a back 5 was just change for the sake of it. Gills was poor even before his howler.

Referee was shocking but we need to dig in and move on and try to get our best 11 on the park.

Fair play to those who attended that. Must have been horrendous. Shocking ref and assistants, who must be relieved that they will be under even less scrutiny than normal, given Accies inability to defend.
