Mohamadou Sissoko should return from a groin injury for Kilmarnock.

The defender has returned to training following a groin injury but Craig Bryson is a doubt after picking up a knock against Dundee United last week.

Kilmarnock are without Mehdi Taouil (hamstring), Frazer Wright (shoulder) and Ryan O'Leary (hamstring).

Suso Santana and Ismael Bouzid miss out for Hearts.

Andy Webster and Ruben Palazuelos (both groin) are doubtful, Andrew Driver (knee) and Rudi Skacel (Achilles) have been carrying knocks and Jason Thomson (hamstring), Calum Elliot (knee) and Kevin Kyle (hip) are out.

Kilmarnock (from): Bell, Clancy, Hamill, Sissoko, Pascali, Eremenko, Fowler, Bryson, Mendes Da Silva, Kelly, Hay, Gros, Agard, Berntsson, Jaakkola, Aubameyang, Dayton, Rui Miguel.

Hearts (from): Kello, MacDonald, Stevenson, Driver, Elliott, Skacel, Glen, C Thomson, Balogh, Webster, Templeton, Black, Palazuelos, Robinson, Zaliukas, Mrowiec, Jonsson, Barr, McGowan.
