Hearts will give Fraser Mullen every chance of making the Scottish Communities League Cup final despite the right-back suffering a bad ankle injury on Sunday.

The teenager limped off in the first half of the goalless Edinburgh derby after putting in a strong sliding tackle on Hibernian winger Matt Done.

Interim manager Gary Locke told Hearts TV: "He's got a bad one. We'll see how he responds to treatment. I'm hopeful that he'll be okay but he is in the hands of the physios at the moment.

"If they can work their magic then hopefully he will be in contention but it's still too early to say at the moment."

Hearts already have defenders Danny Grainger (knee), Jamie Hamill (knee) and Marius Zaliukas (ankle) on the injury list but Darren Barr will return from suspension to join the squad to face St Mirren on Sunday.

Brad McKay, another 19-year-old, replaced Mullen to make his Hearts debut at Easter Road on Sunday.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
