Hearts' predicted starting XI against Motherwell - with several stars in contention for return

Hearts go to Motherwell on Wednesday evening in the penultimate game of the cinch Premiership season.

With the Tynecastle side having long wrapped up third place, one eye will be on next week’s Scottish Cup final especially with a number of injury question marks around the side.

Robbie Neilson has already stated that John Souttar will be on the bench for tonight’s fixture but is unlikely to see any action, while Craig Halkett isn’t expected to return until Saturday’s league fixture with Rangers.

However, there could be a place in the team tonight for Aaron McEneff, Michael Smith, Cammy Devlin and Andy Halliday, all of whom have been absent recently with various ailments.

Beni Baningime remains a long-term absentee with a knee-cruciate injury.
