Eckersley got sent off for an even stoopiter incident last time at east end park. 

So who do you play?

the guy coming back from injury and not match fit?

or the guy who has turned a number of good performances, had a mare on Saturday, but is fit, troubles the opposition and in form otherwise ?

Aye who would be a manager - whatever one Jack picks better have a decent game or Jack will bear much of the blame from some fans....

This week in training will decide - either of them not fully fit? Who looks sharpest and hungriest? - either way both are capable of playing well...

Eckersley played in both previous matches with them this season - the last time we won 1 v 0

I am a fan of each and every player in the squad. Each have strengths and each have weaknesses. Form varies, fitness and injuries intrude. Some are more exciting to watch than others.

At championship level - our daily bread and butter - our goals against record has improved in recent times and credit for this must go to our defence and the hard work of the men in front.

Mistakes have happened, mistakes will happen again. Sometimes even the opposition make them and we profit from it! Tough match? No doubt. Should we approach the game with fear? No?

Should we swagger into town and disrespect our opponents? No. The players at the club have a chance to make a little history and become local heroes, 

I know that all Saint's fans hope that they do. In itself the game on Friday is not a league decider.

The manager will answer that question on Friday

Stelios posted something on instagram about remembering and learning, not forgetting. Great attitude, he knows he had a bad performance. I want him to start on Friday

I agree, good attitude.

As for him starting on Friday, suppose it depends on how Ross see's the threat from Dunfermline.

I wouldn't be concerned if Stelios plays as Aberdeen and Dunfermline are a completely different class.

My point is - He is not a right back, Eck is....... Ecks was completely different- we were 3-0 down, game over he was peeed off.

I am not Stellios bashing- he can be very effective, but never a backs to the wall player, and in the run in, we need better options at the back, not yet another attacking option as a first off

Most of the players made a negative impact on Saturday. 

I am sure they will bounce back positively on Friday night. 

The Pars to be skelped. 

Did u watch the game?

I thought Cammy Smith was superb, Davis and McGinn fought really hard, Morgan was given the full respect treatment and Reilly showed his pace on several occasions. Who actually had a poor game? Apart from Stellios

We were the better team at 2-0 down, and TBF priority was to take care of the result and health last 43 mins................

Stelios has been good for most of the season. He was excellent against Dumbarton and shite against Aberdeen.
 
I'm confident he'll put Saturday's performance behind him and continue to be an important player for us this season.
Your right mate. Name a player who has not made mistakes this season. Sometimes you get away with them sometimes as with Stelios on Sat you don't. We're in a great position in the league let's get behind all the players. We could have made no mistakes on Sat and still lost 4.1. Coys

Never said any manager would say. But against a good team like The Dons you could easily lose 4.1 as Hibs found to their cost.

Dons are a good team, no doubt of that

Stelios will be dropped and I doubt we will see him starting again until and injury / suspension for Eckersley or Smith.  I am surprised that this is even up for debate after the horror show at Aberdeen.  Jack doesn't give second chances to unreliable defenders, just ask Gregor Buchanan.

Liam Smith had a shocker too on Saturday, he possibly could do with a rest soon.

Otherwise I would imagine we will start the same.  Reilly has played poorly against Dunfermline and missed some sitters in both games.  Hope some work is being done to mentally prepare him for this one, he obviously didn't have a good time there and it seems to effect when even when playing against them!

We should be able to take a point from this one, which would be a decent result.

Did you watch who was responsible for us getting the goal ? I' not sure he will be dropped Jack might think Stelios might correct his wrongs .

There's quite a few players starting to flag.  Now maybe that we don't have the distraction of a cup run,  we can concentrate our efforts on the championship.

Looking forward to this, it's always a test after a team get's pumped.

We've recovered from defeats this season already, which says a lot for the manager and the players.

We're already 15 points ahead of Dunfermline, win this and they shouldn't even be a thought for the rest of the season.

I thought 10th March.  Might still require 3 point to distance us from the Arabs.
