Hearts have a near full-strength squad available - with Andy Webster among those back in contention.
Former Rangers and Wigan defender Webster has recovered from a groin injury, David Obua is available following a hamstring problem and Ian Black is free to play despite being in the middle of a domestic suspension.
Mehdi Taouil (groin) remains out along with long-term absentees Kevin Kyle (hip) and Calum Elliot (knee).
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp could be without up to six midfielders for the game.
Sandro, Wilson Palacios (both knee) Steven Pienaar, Luka Modric (both groin) and Jermaine Jenas (Achilles) are all out while Tom Huddlestone is a doubt with an ankle problem, meaning 21-year-old Jake Livermore is almost certain to start just his second game for Spurs.
Ledley King and Alan Hutton are sidelined with knee injuries and William Gallas is also out with a calf problem.
Hearts (from): Kello, Hamill, Grainger, Jonsson, Webster, Black, Elliott, Driver, Templeton, Obua, Sutton, Stevenson, McGowan, Novikovas, Skacel, Smith, Zaliukas, Robinson, MacDonald, Mrowiec.
Tottenham (from): Gomes, Friedel, Cudicini, Bale, Kaboul, Bassong, Dawson, Corluka, Walker, Assou-Ekotto, Huddlestone, Lennon, Van der Vaart, Kranjcar, Rose, Livermore, Pavlyuchenko, Defoe, Crouch.
