Robbie Neilson’s men will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in the league following the 6-2 thrashing of apparent rivals for the title Dundee last Friday night. In addition, a win would make if five on the trot this campaign after three from three in the Betfred Cup.

It is the final fixture for the Jam Tarts before they play their long-awaited Scottish Cup semi final against rivals Hibs at Hampden park on Hallowe’en. There will be plenty of interest in the starting XI ahead of that fixture. Will Neilson look to give Peter Haring more minutes, while also getting Steven Naismith some action? And could he rest some of those who have either been travelling, like Michael Smith, or played most games so far, such as Jamie Walker.?

We will have all the latest throughout the evening from Gayfield, including reaction and analysis at full-time.
