Manager Danny Lennon is looking to end Celtic's 11-game winning run in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League when the Hoops visit St Mirren.

Included in that impressive streak of form which has taken Neil Lennon's side two points clear of Rangers at the top of the table is a 5-0 win over the Buddies at Parkhead in November.

Saints boss Lennon said: "Celtic have been absolutely terrific and it is a terrific run. They had a stop-start situation at the beginning of the season so Neil Lennon and his staff have to take a great deal of credit for that run and getting to the top of the table. It is fantastic management. But we hope we can bring it to a halt tomorrow."

He added: "Our level of performances have been excellent regardless of the fact that Rangers (on Christmas Eve) was the last SPL game we won.

"We have not had the results to go with those performances and that has been disappointing for us.

"We feel that whenever we take to the field we have an opportunity and we are certainly in a better position now than when we went to Celtic Park the last time.

"We learned a great deal from that game and so hopefully we can put a spanner in Celtic's good run."
