Josh Ginnelly is set to return to training with Hearts.

He will report tomorrow morning with the rest of the first-team squad as preparations continue for Saturday’s Scottish Cup second round.

Ginnelly was in isolation for ten days after testing positive for Covid 19, missing Championship matches against Ayr United, Arbroath and Dundee.

His pace and direct approach were missed by Robbie Neilson’s side and he will be welcomed back to training first thing in the morning.

“Ginnelly is back training with us tomorrow so that’s a boost,” Neilson told the Evening News. “We’ve missed him while he’s been out and I think everyone can see the quality he brings to the team, so it will be nice to have him back involved.”

Hearts will want the on-loan Preston North End player available for the weekend cup tie against either Camelon or Brora Rangers.

Those two teams meet in Denny tomorrow night to replay their abandoned first-round match.
