“Myko has had a bit of a setback,” manager Lee Johnson explained, as Martin Boyle, Kyle Magennis, and Aiden McGeady remain out.

“He’s at Manchester City, he went down on Thursday to have an ultrasound scan on the affected area so we won’t know until later what the full story is. I’m not that confident about that one – maybe for Hearts, but I’m not that confident going into the Sunday game in particular.”

Michael Beale could give some of his fringe players a run out with defender Connor Goldson a doubt for the game.

The Glasgow club are already without Borna Barisic, Ben Davies, Ryan Kent, Antonio Colak, Kemar Roofe, Tom Lawrence, Steven Davis and Filip Helander. Loan player Malik Tillman has already returned to parent club Bayern Munich after a hamstring problem ended his season early.

Beale said: “In terms of the young players, we’ve lost Bailey Rice and Zak Lovelace to international duty with Scotland and England Under-17s, at the Euros. So there will be one or two others get an opportunity.

“There’s players that have been injured for big parts of the season that need an opportunity as well and we are going to need everyone. We probably have 16 players to get us through the last three games next week: Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday.

“We want to end the season well. We know the teams we are playing this week are still in the hunt for European places, so they are not slowing down. It is important for us that after two home wins against Aberdeen and Celtic that we back that up this weekend.”
