Hearts are back in action this weekend after the international break with their penultimate fixture before the split.
They travel to Ross County to take on Malky Mackay’s side who will be gunning for a victory to try and make the top six, which would be an excellent achievement for a team which stated with zero victories from their first ten games.
Hearts are on a strong run having won four matches in a five-game unbeaten run, though they’ll have a few injury issues to deal with.
Beni Baningime has been ruled out until next season with a knee injury, while midfield partner Cammy Devlin remains sidelined with a hamstring complaint.
John Souttar is absent with an ankle problem and the same goes for Michael Smith who continues to nurse a back issue.
Gary Mackay-Steven and Josh Ginnelly are back in full training.
