CALLUM McGREGOR will return to first team action at Dundee this afternoon as Neil Lennon makes four changes to his starting line-up following last week’s frustrating goalless draw with Aberdeen at Parkhead.
The Scotland international midfielder will partner skipper Scott Brown with the crocked Nir Bitton missing out.
The injured Dedryck Boyata is also sidelined and Mikael Lustig will take his place alongside Kristoffer Ajer with on-loan Borussia Dortmund defender Jeremy Toljan coming in at right-back and Kieran Tierney on the left flank.
Mikey Johnston and Odsonne Edouard replace Ewan Henderson and Oliver Burke, who will start on the substitutes’ bench.
Filip Benkovic is also among the stand-by players after recovering from injury. Also on the bench are Dorus de Vries, Jonny Hayes, Timothy Weah and Vakoun Bayo.
The champions, who won 5-0 on Tayside in October, have the opportunity of going TEN points clear at the top of the Premiership in their pursuit of their eighth successive title.
TEAM: Bain; Toljan, Lustig, Ajer, Tierney; Brown, McGregor; Forrest, Johnston, Sinclair; Edouard. Subs: De Vries, Benkovic, Hayes, Henderson, Weah, Burke, Bayo.
