Jim Jefferies has no fresh concerns as Hearts prepare for Sunday's meeting with his former club.
Ian Black is available after coming off the bench in last Saturday's 3-0 defeat of St Mirren with a bandage over broken bones in his hand.
Andrew Driver (thigh), David Obua (groin) and Lee Wallace (knee) remain absent.
Kilmarnock have no fresh injury problems ahead of the game.
Long-term injury absentees James Dayton and Alan Combe remain on the sidelines.

Kick-off at Tynecastle is 12:45pm.
