The Gers previous trip to Leith saw Alfredo Morelos sent off after John Lundstram has been wrongly dismissed as the Hibees secured a 2-2 draw. What does tonight’s contest have in store?

Beale has named an unchanged line-up to the side that started Saturday’s 3-1 Premiership win over Kilmarnock at Ibrox, with Croatian striker Antonio Colak again favoured over Morelos up front.

Winger Rabbi Matondo is named on the bench after a lenghty absence through injury but there’s no place in the matchday squad for John Souttar and Ridvan Yilmaz who stepped up their return to full fitness by starting for the club’s B team in their Glasgow Cup defeat to Celtic on Tuesday.

Bayern Munich loanee Malik Tillman is deemed not fit enough to be included, while Kemar Roofe and Tom Lawrence won’t feature until next season owing to injury.
