The West Approach Road will be closed between Westfield Road and the flyover at Dalry Road on Sunday.

This could result in potential travel delays and the layby on the West Approach Road will not be available for coaches stopping.


Team news

Arnaud Djoum, Don Cowie and Harry Cochrane are making good progress on their injury comebacks but won't feature on Sunday, with all three set to train with the first team next week.

Kyle Lafferty will be assessed over the next 48-hours after a back injury forced him off in mdweek against Cowdenbeath.



Hearts haven’t faced Inverness since the 2016/17 season, after the Highland side suffered relegation from the top flight.

The men in maroon came out on top in that season’s encounters, winning one and drawing two.

Arnaud Djoum secured a share of the spoils the last time the two sides faced each other Tynecastle, back in February 2017, cancelling out Carl Tremarco’s opener with a close-range second-half finish.


The opposition

Caley have been the pacesetters since the group stage began, winning their opening match 2-0 at home to Cove Rangers.

That was followed up with a 5-2 success away to Cowdenbeath, before a late goal sealed a 2-1 home win over Raith Rovers in midweek.

Manager John Robertson needs no introduction, so we won’t give him one. We will, however, remember him as the legendary ‘Hammer of Hibs’.

Former Jambos in the Caley ranks include Angus Beith, Mark Ridgers and Brad McKay.
