Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson hopes to have Sam Nicholson and Kevin McHattie back for Wednesday’s League Cup trip to Celtic.

As revealed in Tuesday’s Evening News, the duo are set to sit out today’s Championship clash with Cowdenbeath after taking knocks in last weekend’s goalless draw at Dumbarton.

McHattie suffered a blow to the knee and Nicholson sprained his ankle, but Neilson said: “We’d hope to have them back training at the start of the week.”
