The Light Blues are likely to face one of their biggest tests of the season to date against Jack Ross’ men who have won four and drawn three of their opening seven domestic games.

Goalkeeper Matt Macey has kept three clean sheets in his last four games and will want to build on that impressive form, while the Premiership’s top scorer Martin Boyle will aim to add to his 10 goals so far this season.

A victory for the Easter Road outfit could see them leapfrog the Gers and Edinburgh rivals Hearts, who the only other team yet to taste defeat.

The match will also serve as a tasty warm-up ahead of next month’s Scottish League Cup semi-final meeting between the sides at Hampden Park.
