Robbie Neilson’s men stopped the rot with a victory away to St Mirren on Saturday and followed it up with a very impressive 2-0 win over Aberdeen at Tynecastle Park in midweek.
Here’s how the Hearts boss is expected to set up for the trip to Tannadice.

4. CB - John Souttar
Souttar will play on the right side of Halkett and in a back four that could become a three when on the attack, with Atkinson moving further forward
