Hearts boss Steven Naismith has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Liam Boyce (Muscle injury) and Barrie McKay (Knee injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.

We’re therefore tipping both teams to score in a 1-2 win for Hearts after 90 minutes. It really should be an interesting one.
