Hearts manager Paulo Sergio will contemplate changes for the derby visit of Hibs after his youthful side drew with Tottenham.

The likes of John Sutton, Stephen Elliott and Jamie Hamill could return but youngsters such as Scott Robinson performed well at White Hart Lane.

Ian Black has served his SPL suspension but Kevin Kyle (hip) is doubtful despite targeting the game as his comeback.

Richie Towell could go straight into the Hibs starting line-up after signing on loan from Celtic.

The Easter Road club are also looking to push through the paperwork for the imminent loan signing of Leigh Griffiths, but it is doubtful whether the Wolves striker will sign in time to feature in Gorgie.

Junior Agogo and Isaiah Osbourne are back in contention after recent injuries, while Newcastle loan striker Phil Airey could be out for as long as four weeks. Long-term absentees Michael Hart and Sean Welsh also miss out.

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

Hibs (from): Stack, Palsson, Booth, Hanlon, O'Hanlon, Murray, Stephens, Osbourne, Wotherspoon, Galbraith, Scott, Thornhill, Stevenson, Sproule, O'Connor, Sodje, Towell, Brown.
