I’ll get the ROTTEN IN DENMARK patter out the way early, because that’s exactly what we were on our last visit there, back in 2008 losing 2-1 at Aalborg in a disastrous display.

Gary Caldwell and Stephen McManus conspired to dump us out of the Champions League on that fateful November evening, but our defence now, while not exactly all conquering, is much more reliable for this level than those days.

It’s a 5.55pm kick off, so make sure and dog work on Thursday or make up an excuse to get to see it on BT.

We’re on some run and Copenhagen lost to the relegation threatened Esbjerg at the weekend so they won’t really be a problem.

Their star striker is also joining Astana, and has departed them.

A proper Q&A Preview will be done before the game, but anyone thinking this is a tricky tie are off their heads.

We should stroll it into the last sixteen no bother.
