The Bhoys boss has just signed a new contract with the champions but faces selection problems for the visit of Terry Butcher's in-form side, with several key men struggling for fitness.

Forward Giorgios Samaras, wingers James Forrest and Derk Boerrigter, striker Anthony Stokes and playmaker Kris Commons are all potential absentees and Lennon will delay naming his squad as long as possible.

By contrast, Butcher has a fully-fit Inverness squad to pick from as they look to keep up their impressive start to the season, during which they have kept three clean sheets in their three victories.

Defender Garry Warren has a slight concern over a hand injury, but is still expected to take the field.
