Hibernian v Hearts

Former Hibs midfielder Kevin Thomson could have his return to Easter Road sewn up in time for this game, boss Pat Fenlon has revealed - the Scotland international is a free agent after his release by Middlesbrough. Tim Clancy, meanwhile, could be back after a hamstring tear, but defender Paul Hanlon misses out with a hip injury.

Hearts' defensive concerns have deepened as Darren Barr serves a one-game ban. The Jambos are already missing long-term absentees Danny Grainger (knee), Jamie Hamill (knee) and Marius Zaliukas (ankle) from their back line, while injured midfielders Callum Patterson (foot) and Scott Robinson (knee) both remain sidelined too. Mehdi Taouil is expected to recover from a calf strain.

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
