Hearts' European goalscorer Jamie Hamill is again suspended as the Jambos return to domestic action.

Hamill scored from the penalty spot on his Hearts debut against Paks on Thursday night but is banned from domestic duty for one more match, while Ryan Stevenson is poised to play despite suffering a deep wound to his hand in Hungary.

Mehdi Taouil, Andy Webster (both groin) and long-term absentees Kevin Kyle (hip), Andy Driver (groin) and Calum Elliot (knee) all missed the Europa League qualifying match and are set to be absent again.

Gary Mackay-Stevens could shake off an ankle injury to make the Dundee United squad. The winger was injured in last weekend's draw with Kilmarnock, but has returned to light training.

Scott Robertson is available again following an ankle problem, while Danny Swanson (back) made a goalscoring return off the bench against Killie and could start at Tynecastle.

Hearts (from): Kello, McGowan, Zaliukas, Jonsson, Grainger, Black, Mrowiec, Templeton, Stevenson, Sutton, Balogh, MacDonald, Holt, Smith, Elliott, Barr, Prychynenko, Novikovas, Obua.

Dundee United (from): Pernis, Dillon, Severin, Dixon, Kenneth, Douglas, Smith, Watson, Flood, Rankin, Armstrong, Mackay-Stevens, Goodwillie, Russell, Daly, Swanson, Hilson, Banks, Robertson.
