Team News: Hearts
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Hearts gaffer Robbie Neilson to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group of players. Jamie Brandon (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) is out of contention.
Team News: Hibernian
Due to a mostly healthy squad, there’s only a single fitness issue for the Hibernian manager Jack Ross to be concerned about. Christian Doidge (Achilles tendon problems) won’t be playing here.
Our feeling is that Hibernian and Hearts should both be able to score here although it’s hard to pick a clear winner.
There should be little in it, and a draw looks to be quite a realistic result. We’re therefore predicting a very even match with a score draw at the end of the match.
