    ICT 2nd leg thread

    Do we think Safranko will make it from the start? Maybe from the bench? Same with Butcher, arguably a bigger loss if he doesn't play

    7300 home end tickets sold as of this morning, should see 8000+ arabs tomorrow as lot of people will buy on the day

    Good effort

    Butcher should be ok, Pawlett is struggling.

    If Pawlett is struggling, same set up as start of the second half Tuesday with Cammy Smith in for him. Would need Pawlett and Pav on the bench though if they are fit enough for that.

    few tough decisions for Neilson tomorrow with alot depending on injuries.
    the team id go with......
    Benji
    Watson Connolly Reynolds Booth
    Mcmullan butcher Harkes Robson
    Safranco Clark

    Depends on how Butcher and safranco is tbh. hoping both can make it esp butcher but if not then id put bouhenna in there for physical presence. ideally id bring bouhenna at the back as i prefer him to connolly but doubt thatll happen.

    I like having booth and robson playing as it seems to make us abit more secure on that side. Got to get clark in team imo. he helps link the play well and can score. save sow for later stages when he can go full pelt without needing to worry about burning out.

    hoping Stanton is on bench just as an option even if butcher is ok. suddenly look weak in middle after releasing gomis and fyvie

    Papers last night mentioned that Butcher had suffered a cut to the head but that he was fine and no other issues. No mention of the hobbling off at the end so assume he is ok which is probably the best news of all as against this lot it’s actually him that is the key player for us. Safranko is up in the air a bit. He may well be fine but it depends on the nature of his illness, the fact that he managed at least the 45 mins on Tuesday would hopefully suggest he’ll be ok. He’ll certainly be on the bench but if he feels able to start, Neilson will start him.

    Hearing that Butcher is out but not seeing it confirmed. Bouhenna should be solid enough but lacks the distribution that Butcher brings.

    No way the will be any confirmation of that until the team is announced. A blow if true but not fatal.

    Definitely not, the first two meetings with Inverness this season were 1-1 home and away, we were the better side in both, that was long before the January window

    A clearly unfit Fyvie and Stanton played in both

    And there is a lot of talk about the cup match but we've beaten them twice since then. Do I think it'll be tough? Yes. Do I fear Inverness? No.

    Yep, seen stuff on Facebook regarding that. So long as Bouhenna starts it should be ok although not ideal. If he has a brain fart and starts Stanton instead though...............................

    You never know but Stanton wasn't even in the squad on Tuesday!

    My main concern is in the event of pens, benji is crap at pens, just need to put it to the side of him and he is beaten,they'd have to be terrible on theirs to not progress in that scenario

    Phuxache, I'm in a sweat even thinking about that! 😬

    As documented on here before, that keeper gives me the fear - He was flapping again on Tuesday in the first half.

    We desperately need to come out firing tonight and get the first goal. Play Clark - We are the ones at home, lets boss this and win it.

    C'mon United. Off to the pub for a pre match swally.

    Thought Benji was pretty composed for the most part other than the duff kick

    Even that was a little unlucky hitting the ICT player and going right to their player.
