The Capital rivals are due to clash next at Tynecastle on April 6 – the final weekend before the Ladbrokes Premiership splits – but Bartley has admitted Hibs are already seeking revenge.

Asked by Sky Sports News if the Hibs players were “over” the defeat by Hearts, Bartley said: “No, we’re not over that. We won’t get over that until we play them again. We need to put that right the next time we play them.

“There’s a lot of games to be played before then but the derby is definitely something we need to sort out next time.”
