Templeton a doubt for Hearts
Hearts winger David Templeton is a doubt for the Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash against Celtic after suffering a dead leg in Sunday's Edinburgh derby.
But Suso Santana could be a straight replacement after missing the win at Hibernian amid concerns over his knee problem.
Manager Jim Jefferies has a few other minor concerns following a bruising derby and is still without Andrew Driver (thigh), David Obua (groin) and Lee Wallace (knee).
Jefferies does not expect Celtic to show any signs of complacency at a ground where they are usually given a tough test.
"I'm not sure you get Celtic or Rangers being complacent for anyone," he added. "The levels they expect are scanned into them from the first minute to last. They have pressure to win every game so I don`t see that.
"They are used to winning games and they will see this now as a game which is very difficult. If they are on a massive high, we are too."
Thomas Rogne is suspended for Celtic.
The Norwegian defender was sent off in Saturday`s 9-0 win over Aberdeen and was handed an automatic one-game ban.
Striker Daryl Murphy has recovered from an ankle injury and is back in contention but James Forrest continues his rehabilitation from the same complaint.
Ki Sung-yueng could see a big Celtic win coming in recent weeks - but not by the nine goals they scored against Aberdeen at Parkhead on Saturday.
The Hoops' home defeat to Old Firm rivals Rangers last month has been their only domestic blip this season and they remain on the tail of the Ibrox men after handing the Dons their record 9-0 loss at the weekend.
Ki, 21, who was at Celtic Park to receive his Clydesdale Bank Young Player of the Month award for October, could see a thrashing coming, but not by such a margin.
"We didn't expect 9-0," the South Korean said. "Maybe five or six but especially in the second half, we dominated the game and punished them.
"It was an unbelievable result. It was my first time experiencing 9-0 and it won't happen in my life again.
"If we had lost again it would have been very hard to catch Rangers so that's why we worked harder in training and in games. If we keep playing like this I think we can win the league."
Lennon off as Hoops crash
Goals by Ian Black and David Templeton gave Hearts a 2-0 victory over 10-man Celtic in a turbulent Clydesdale Bank Premier League encounter at Tynecastle which saw Hoops manager Neil Lennon sent to the stand.
Black gave the home side the lead with a deflected drive in the 28th minute and in the 56th minute he was crunched in a tackle by Joe Ledley to earn the Hoops midfielder a red card.
Two minutes later the Gorgie men scored a breakaway second through Templeton, but there was much more drama to come.
After a penalty claim was ignored by referee Craig Thomson, when Jambos substitute Ryan Stevenson, on for Black, looked like he might have used an arm in the box, the raging Lennon was dismissed from the dugout after aggressively complaining to fourth official Steven McLean and linesman Graham Chambers.
The incident is sure to spark more controversy and debate in light of the Irishman's recent spat with the Scottish Football Association and referee Dougie McDonald after the official rescinded a penalty award at Dundee United and then lied to Lennon about how he had come to the decision.
Effectively playing with four strikers, Celtic were intent on taking all three points back to Glasgow and they started well. In the seventh minute Hoops skipper Shaun Maloney picked up a Georgios Samaras pass and moved to the edge of the Hearts box before firing straight at Jambos goalkeeper Marian Kello.
Moments later Celtic survived a goalmouth melee following a Rudi Skacel corner and then, in the 13th minute, Stephen Elliott crashed a header off the crossbar from 10 yards after Templeton volleyed towards goal from the right-hand side.
The challenges and tackles continued to fly in as both sides battled for dominance but in the 28th minute the home side enjoyed a slice of fortune when they took the lead through Black.
The former Inverness midfielder took a short free-kick from Skacel and let fly from 30 yards, watching as the ball took a deflection off Daniel Majstorovic before looping over Fraser Forster in goal.
The Hoops fought back and there was controversy in the 34th minute when striker Gary Hooper was booked for simulation by referee Thomson after going to ground when rounding Kello in the box.
There was barely time to take a breath and Skacel tested Forster with a free-kick from distance, the Hoops keeper grabbing at the second attempt.
Four minutes from the break Maloney dispossessed Hearts skipper Marius Zaliukas on the byline, allowing Anthony Stokes to set up the unmarked Hooper but his low drive from 16 yards was blocked by Kello's legs.
It was a let-off for the Edinburgh side men and later, at the other end, Zaliukas tried to make amends when he climbed to meet a Skacel corner but headed over the crossbar.
Celtic went hunting for the leveller with some enthusiasm at the start of the second half and the Tynecastle men found themselves with their backs to the wall.
Hearts took some time to emerge from their own half but when they did, the looked threatening.
The game boiled over again in the 56th minute when Ledley was handed a straight red card by Thomson after a tackle on Black which left the Hearts player requiring treatment.
The Celtic bench was enraged but two minutes later there was more trouble for Celtic when Skacel raced down the left and crossed for the unmarked Templeton to slide past Forster from 12 yards.
Moments later, Kello made a point blank save from Hooper before Lennon introduced Cha Du-ri and Niall McGinn for Stokes and Mark Wilson.
In the 70th minute there were loud claims for a Celtic penalty when Ryan Stevenson made an intervention in the box with what might have been an arm but referee Thomson played on.
Lennon complained long and loud to the fourth official McLean and linesman Chambers, and was ordered by Thomson to leave the technical area.
Six minutes from time McGinn hit the outside of the post from the byline and while the visitors continued to fight, there was no way back.
