The Celtic boss has warned his players they must avoid a third defeat in a week, get back to scoring after only their second blank of the season in the 2-0 defeat to Kilmarnock on Saturday, and start building a new home record after losing in domestic competition at Parkhead for the first time since August 21, 2011.
"Some of my staff were impersonating footballers on Saturday," he joked as he revealed he took his mind off the defeat to Killie by going to a fancy dress party at the weekend.
Ironically, before Killie took all three points away from Celtic Park, the last Scottish team to beat the Hoops on their own patch was tonight's opponents, St Johnstone, 22 games ago.
Steve Lomas' side were also responsible for inflicting a shock win over the champions when they met at McDiarmid Park on September 15.
All of these factors will be used by Lennon as incentives to get back to winning ways tonight.
With huge games coming up against, among others, Barcelona and Benfica over the next few weeks, the importance of regaining winning momentum is paramount.
Lennon wants that to kickstart tonight and reminded everyone: "We had quite a proud home record for over a year, which has gone now.
"Domestically, I wanted to go quite a while unbeaten.
"It was over a year since we lost to St Johnstone, so now we have to start from scratch again."
Lennon has warned his players who have been champing at the bit to start that opportunities to play will become even harder to obtain if they fail to fire as they did at the weekend.
"I want to utilise the squad," he explained. "But if we are going to play like we did on Saturday, I'll not be utilising the squad. I'll just go with what I have got."
He exonerated Miku from blame, despite the Venezuelan failing to make any impact and being substituted.
Nevertheless, Lennon will field a very strong side tonight, with Scott Brown, Gary Hooper and Victor Wanyama, who were rested at the weekend, in line to return.
On the injury front, Georgios Samaras is making progress in his recovery from ankle ligament damage and is training outside again.
Dylan McGeouch is also in line to return by this weekend after tweaking a knee ligament, but Lassad Nouioui is still two weeks away.
Contract talks are also continuing, and Lennon said: "I don't think we are far away with Gary Hooper.
"We're in discussions with Tony Watt and with Victor Wanyama, we may start negotiations again later on."
