Dropping out are Christophe Berra, Steven Naismith and Elliot Frear with Mihai Popescu, Jamie Walker and Josh Ginnelly taking their place.

Here is a selection of Hearts fans views on the starting 11 for the Stark’s Park showdown:

Daniel McIver (@McIverTheMark): If we play a 4-2-3-1, this is our strongest team. Come on Hearts.

Hearts Till We Die (@HeartsTillWeDie): Walker better do something

Stephen Maxwell (@Smaxwell2981): Strong team. Nice balance (I have said this so many times in the last few seasons though)

Sam (@_SamCunningham): Two good wingers on the pitch at the same time our new number 9 should relish in this when he comes on.

Peter mccarter (@pedromccarter): Start Naismith and Haring instead of Halliday and Walker, then we’re talking

Aaron Fraser (@AaronFraser37): Halliday had better justify that start, anonymous in recent weeks

Ann Waddell (@AnnWaddell15): Finally seen the light regarding Frear. More like the team we've been looking for. 3pts tonight an absolute must

Shaun Donnelly (@Sdonnelly04): How is Halliday starting? A half fit Peter Haring is twice the player Halliday is.

Graeme Taylor (@graha1874): Will the other nine guys in this team be able to carry Walker & Halliday through this game?

Andrew (@A_McLean99): There is something incredibly heart-warming about seeing Gordon as skipper. Good to see Ginnelly in from the start. Would probably have brought Haring back in somewhere in the spine.

Evan (@EvanMcCallumm): I’ll take that, gnanduillet off the bench with 30 mins to go
