JAMES FORREST makes his first start since his ankle injury in September when he faces Falkirk in the Scottish Cup third round tie at Parkhead this evening.

The Scotland international winger has struggled to overcome his problem after limping off early on in the 1-0 European win over Riga.
Interim boss John Kennedy has made three changes to his line-up from the team that drew 1-1 in the derby against Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox outfit a fortnight ago.

Leigh Griffiths, who played a cameo role in that game, leads the attack in place of Odsonne Edouard who is on the substitutes’ bench.

Tom Rogic and Forrest replace Callum McGregor and Mohamed Elyounoussi who both represented their countires, Scotland and Norway, in the World Cup qualifiers.

TEAM: Bain; Kenny, Ajer, Welsh, Laxalt; Brown, Christie, Turnbull, Rogic; Forrest, Griffiths. Subs: Barkas, Taylor, Duffy, Ajeti, Soro, Edouard, Elyounoussi, McGregor and Ralston.
