Hearts loanee Zdenek Zlamal will line up again for St Mirren when they face Celtic tomorrow night.

The 34-year-old keeper was drafted in at the last minute before the Buddies’ 3-0 weekend loss to Hibs. It came after the whole goalkeeper department was wiped out due to positive COVID-19 tests.

Goalkeeper coach Jamie Langfield had to take to the bench but now Peter Urminsky will occupy the bench. Normally third choice, the young stopper will be back-up to Zlamal after being ruled out of Saturday’s game as a precaution, follow-up tests confirming he doesn’t have the virus.

But it won’t be a start for him against a Celtic side who head into this one off the back of a 5-0 win over Ross County. Goodwin has confirmed Zlamal will be between the sticks as he looks to put last week behind him.

“Bobby Zlamal is going to be in,” said Goodwin. “He’s available, we are fortunate to have a goalkeeper of Bobby’s experience.

“Obviously I have had time to calm down after the weekend. (There was) an element of surprise that the game was going ahead. The result and the overall performance was very poor and it just summed up a really bad week for us to be honest.

“I’m still disappointed about the situation but we can’t afford to dwell on it too much.”
