JAMES FORREST makes a surprise start as one of three changes by Ange Postecoglou for the match against Dundee United at Tannadice tonight.

The Scotland international winger has been a bit-part player this season, but comes in along with Giorgos Giakoumakis and Liel Abada for what could be the title decider on Tayside.

Kyogo Furuhashi, Filipe Jota and Daizen Maeda, who all starred in the 4-1 victory over Hearts at the weekend, are among the stand-by squad.

Japanese midfielder Yosuke Ideguchi also makes a return to the squad on the substitutes’ bench.

The Hoops, of course, only require a point to seal their tenth title in 11 years after an incredible run of 30 league games without a loss.

The last time they sampled a defeat was at Livingston back on September 19 and since that frustrating afternoon in West Lothian, the team have surged towards the finishing tape in breathtaking fashion.

Tannadice has been a happy hunting ground in this campaign with two 3-0 victories, in the league in December and the Scottish Cup in March.

Let’s hope for the hat-trick on this occasion.

TEAM: Hart; Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Taylor; O’Riley, McGregor, Hatate; Forrest, Giakoumakis, Abada. Subs:¬†Bain, Ideguchi, Welsh, McCarthy, Rogic, Turnbull, Maeda, Jota and Kyogo.
