Griffiths' sizzling form this season at Easter Road has brought him 13 goals, and earned the 22-year-old striker his first Scotland cap when he came on against Luxembourg earlier in the month.

However, the Saints boss, whose side are fresh from a 2-1 win over Kilmarnock at the weekend,is wary of Hibs' new found robustness as much as the on-loan Wolves player.

"Leigh Griffiths is on fire at the moment," said Lomas.

"We had it last season with Fran Sandaza who won a lot of games from nothing for us with his goals.

"So Leigh Griffiths is very much their main man but I wouldn't want to take away from any of their other players.

"Pat Fenlon has got good, solid, reliable SPL players like Alan Maybury, players who know the league and who won't be bullied, which tended to happen in the past.

"Pat has put his stamp on that team and by all all accounts they were unlucky to lose against Aberdeen at the weekend, they dominated the game but that seems to be the way in the SPL this season. Everyone can beat everyone else.

"It's all about taking chances and there is a massive incentive for us.

"We are at home, we want back-to-back wins and we can push ahead of them in the table, but Hibs will be wanting to bounce back from their defeat.

"So it has the makings of a good game and we are looking forward to it."

et again Barcelona try to convince the world that they only play the most virtuous of football. I've never seen a team so willing and able to dish out lumps but feel so self-righteous that no opposition player should ever have the audacity to tackle them.
