James Forrest returns from suspension for Celtic.
Daniel Majstorovic has been ruled out for up to three weeks with a hamstring strain picked up during the first half of Saturday’s 1-0 defeat of Aberdeen leaving Thomas Rogne as the only recognised central defender available.
Striker Georgios Samaras is still out with a hamstring injury.
Kevin Kyle remains a doubt as Hearts bid to extend their 11-match unbeaten away run against leaders Celtic.
Striker Kyle missed last Saturday’s 1-0 win over Rangers due to a groin injury and may be absent again, but Rudi Skacel is poised to continue in midfield after showing no ill-effects following a recent calf problem.
Suso Santana is poised to be on the substitutes’ bench again following his knee injury, but Calum Elliot remains doubtful and Andrew Driver (thigh) is nearing a return.
