Willie Collum will take charge of Saturday's derby

The last Tynecastle derby back in October is remembered for all the wrong reasons. Hibs striker Florian Kamberi’s red card sparked a melee between opposing players, Hearts goalkeeper Zdenek Zlamal was struck by an away fan and then-Hibs manager Neil Lennon was hit by a coin thrown from the home support as the teams drew 0-0.
