MATT O’RILEY is in at the start for the injured Aaron Mooy for the visit of Hibs this afternoon.

The smooth midfielder was a 77th-minute substitute for the Australian World Cup ace in the 3-0 Scottish Cup quarter-final win over Hearts at Tynecastle last week.

However, Ange Postecoglou has given O’Riley the nod to be in place for the kick-off on this occasion.

Daizen Maeda also takes up his position on the left with Filipe Jota on the opposite flank.

TEAM: Hart; Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Taylor; Hatate, McGregor, O’Riley; Jota, Kyogo, Meada. Subs: Bain, Haksabanovic, Abada, Turnbull, Kobayashi, Oh, Bernabei, Summers and Ralston.
