Hearts v St Johnstone injury news as 8 out and 1 doubt

Hearts continue their campaign without several key figures as their injury woes persist

Hearts are back in action in just over a week's time following the conclusion of the international break. Two of their beloved stars featured in Scotland's 2-2 draw against Georgia with Zander Clark making his first start for Steve Clarke's side and Lawrence Shankland providing a thrilling injury time equaliser.

Speaking of his international and club teammate, Clark said: "Credit to the wee man, it's a finish I've seen him do many a time. He's been in good form for our club, so I'm delighted to see him come on and get the goal to get us a point."

Steven Naismith will be hopeful that both his players return in similar form to what was seen against Georgia as they prepare for the next quarter of Scottish Premiership fixtures.
