BRENDAN RODGERS is sticking to the starting line-up that beat St Johnstone 2-0 at Parkhead for the Premiership encounter against the same opponents at McDiarmid Park this afternoon.

It means midweek goalscorers Callum McGregor and Ryan Christie will again take their roles in the midfield against Tommy Wright’s outfit.

On-loan Borussia Dortmund defender Jeremy Toljan is the only change to the bench with the former Germany Under-21 ace taking the place of Ewan Henderson.

The Hoops have triumphed in all five of their games in Perth under Rodgers, scoring 20 goals.

TEAM: Bain; Lustig, Ajer, Simunovic, Iizaguirre; Brown, McGregor; Forrest, Christie, Sinclair; Burke. Subs: Gordon, Toljan, Bitton, Hayes, Johnston, Weah, Edouard.
