Craig Gordon is getting close to full fitness, and could be back for our Scottish Cup semi-final clash.

Our no.1 has been sidelined with a knee injury he picked up against Hibs back in January, and the initial prognosis was 12 weeks out.

However, it seems the 35 year old could be back a couple of weeks earlier than scheduled with the derby on 15th April being pencilled in as a possible return date.

Considering the performances of Scott Bain in recent games, some fans on Twitter believe we should keep faith with the 26 year old on loan from Dundee.

Verdict:

It`s a hard one to call. I would like to see how Scott does in upcoming fixtures before making a firm judgement on who to pick for the Cup tie. The experience of Gordon could be crucial, but he will be coming off a long injury layoff, and that could tip things in the favour of our no.29.
