Greg Tansey and Billy McKay are pushing for a place in the Inverness team to face Hearts after recovering from knee and ankle injuries respectively.

Huddersfield winger Aidan Chippendale and Wolves midfielder David Davis are in line for their Scottish Premier League debuts after joining on loan.

David Proctor, Josh Meekings and Kenny Gillet are closing in on returns but Owain Tudur Jones (knee), Lee Cox (pelvis), Jonny Hayes and Aaron Doran (both shoulder) are definitely out.

Hearts goalkeeper Marian Kello is doubtful for the Jambos.

The Slovakian came off against Hibernian with a shoulder injury and Jamie MacDonald is on standby to replace him.

Hearts remain without Kevin Kyle, Calum Elliot, Gary Glen and Janos Balogh.

Inverness CT (from): Esson, Tokely, Hogg, Golobart, Ross, Sutherland, Foran, Tade, Piermayr, Graeme Shinnie, Andrew Shinnie, Morrison, Gillet, Chippendale, Davis, McKay, Polworth, Tuffey.

Hearts (from): MacDonald, Hammill, Grainger, Zaliukas, Webster, Mrowiec, Stevenson, Driver, Templeton, Elliott, Jonsson, Obua, Novikovas, Skacel, McGowan, Smith, Robinson, Kello.
