Hearts v Queen of South preview

The Jambos were crowned Scottish Championship champions last weekend when city rivals Hibernian failed to beat Rangers at Easter Road.
And boss Robbie Neilson will have a near full squad to choose from ahead of the Tynecastle party, with only striker Dale Carrick (hamstring) missing.
Morgaro Gomis reckons winning the title with Hearts tops his Scottish Cup triumph with former club Dundee United.
The French midfielder said: “I’ve never won a title before. This is the first time. I won the Scottish Cup with Dundee United in 2010 but winning the league is something different.
“It’s the whole season and week-in, week-out you have to go out and just play. In the cup you just play no more than eight games so I think it’s harder in the league than in the cup. For me, this is the best.”
Queen of the South will be without the injured Paul Burns (hip) and Iain Russell (knee) as they look to keep hold of fourth spot.
However, Ian McShane is expected to shake off a knock to play.
Manager James Fowler said: “We were disappointing in midweek when we lost 3-0 to Raith Rovers in a game where we made uncharacteristic mistakes.
“Defeating Hearts would be a terrific way to bounce back but it will not be easy as they are worthy champions.
“We have competed well against them all season but it would be great to go that one stage further and take points home with us.”
