ANGE POSTECOGLOU has provided an injury update ahead of tomorrow's Scottish Premiership match against St Johnstone.

The Parkhead boss says both Josip Juranovic and James McCarthy are fit and available.

The match comes too early for James Forrest and Christopher Jullien though.

Postecoglou said: " Juranovic has trained and he is back available. McCarthy has trained as well so he is fit and available. 

"It pretty much means just Forrest, Jullien and Taylor who are not currently available for selection.

"Hopefully we will be getting to a place where people are really competing for places, which also helps.

"Ultimately that is how players perform at their best when they know they are getting challenged every day and they know they can't get complacent.

"Getting those players back from injury will certainly help with that."

On James Forrest Postecoglou added: "He has had a really disruptive time from pre-season onwards. He has had some issues and it has been really challenging for him.

"It is always hard when players are going through rehab because they have to go through it on their own.

"The medical team and the sports science staff are working really hard with him and he has made really good progress the last ten days.

"Without putting any targets on him I hope he will train with the team on Monday, which will be a major step forward for him.

"He hasn't been able to train with the group for quite a while, if we get him in on Monday then it will be a case of seeing when he is able to play. It has been the most promising news we have had on him for quite a while."
