You gotta make the best of whatever advantage you can get

Another home win would be welcome tomorrow against the Buddies Neil Lennon wants to make home advantage pay every time ahead of St Mirren's visit to Parkhead tomorrow. Celtic are back in top spot, with nine games left for both Old Firm clubs, when they swept Hibs aside with ease 3-1 at home on Wednesday night. With most post-split fixtures yet to be decided, Lennon expects twice as many away games as home games to come and he knows they cannot afford to slip up. Lennon said: "I watched St Mirren beat Motherwell three or four weeks ago and they were impressive that night, hungry and well-organised defensively. They scored a good goal on the break and it was a big win for them to beat Hamilton. It was very important as it enlarged the gap between them and Hamilton and they have backed it up with a good win against Aberdeen. All of a sudden they seem to be finding the net so we just have to focus particularly on our home form and hammer home the three points and just keep winning the games between now and the end of the season. Again, every game has its own difficulties on its own merits and Saturday will be no different. With nine games still to go, I think we have six away to look at, so it's very important we win our home games because away games can be unpredictable at times."
