Hearts winger Andrew Driver will miss out because of a recurring knee injury.

Manager Paulo Sergio expects a couple of slight knocks to be shaken off ahead of Sunday, leaving him with no new injury worries.

Jamie MacDonald will once again deputise for the injured Marian Kello (shoulder) while Kevin Kyle, Calum Elliot and Gary Glen remain on the sidelines.
