Neil Lennon has watched his team close the gap with Rangers to a single point with two games left as the title race enters its final week.
Tonight Walter Smith knows only too well that a win will take them to within 90 minutes of securing a third championship in a row. The thought must consume him.
That means Lennon will watch the Rangers-Dundee United match with an eye to an unexpected end to this championship story.
"What we're looking for is somebody to compete and give Rangers a game," Lennon told the Herald this week, referring to the epic drubbings Rangers handed out to Motherwell and Hearts since the league split. "There's not been much evidence of that in the previous two games," he added.
"United have got something to play for now. Results went for them at the weekend, they are looking for a result on Tuesday then a result from us on Wednesday."
