CONFIRMED: JULLIEN’S EURO RETURN

1

CHRISTOPHER JULLIEN will make his long-awaited comeback in the Europa League Group H game against Sparta Prague in the Czech Republic tonight.

The French centre-back hasn’t figured since the 5-0 win over Ross County in Dingwall in September, but Neil Lennon is satisfied with the player’s progress following a back injury to name him in his starting line-up.

Jullien is one of four changes from the side that drew 2-2 with Hibs at Easter Road on Sunday.

Odsonne Edouard, who netted against the Edinburgh side after coming off the substitutes’ bench, gets the nod to start in place of Albian Ajeti who is among the stand-by squad.

Hatem Abd Elhamed will replace Jeremie Frimpong, while Olivier Ntcham comes in for Tom Rogic.

TEAM: Bain; Elhamed, Ajer, Jullien, Laxalt; Brown, McGregor; Ntcham, Christie, Elyounoussi; Edouard. Subs: Barkas, Hazard, Taylor, Duffy, Soro, Bitton, Rogic, Frimpong, Henderson, Ajeti.
