Robbie Neilson makes four changes from the side that booked a Scottish Cup quarter-final place last week as the Jambos face St Johnstone this afternoon.
The men in maroon will be without the services of Craig Gordon and Liam Boyce at McDiarmid Park with the duo missing out through illness. They’re replaced by Ross Stewart and Josh Ginnelly, with John Souttar taking the captain’s armband.
Peter Haring comes in for Beni Baningime while Nathaniel Atkinson slots in for the injured Michael Smith.
Hearts line up as follows:
Stewart, Kingsley, Souttar, Haring, Atkinson, Devlin, Cochrane, McKay, Simms, Sibbick, Ginnelly.
Subs: McFarlane, Baningime, McEneff, Woodburn, Mackay-Steven, Moore, Halliday, Pollock.
