Hearts return to action in the Scottish Cup fourth round against League One opposition after the winter break searching for their first win since beating St Mirren in November.
There has been some big changes at Tynecastle since Hearts' last outing, a 1-1 draw with Aberdeen at the end of December. The winter break has seen boss Daniel Stendel make some significant decisions. Captain Christophe Berra has been moved to the reserves, as have Craig Wighton and Jake Mulraney, while Glenn Whelan has been moved on. A host of the club's youngsters have been recalled to add vibrancy to the first-team squad. With that in mind, how could the team set up on Saturday?
