Injury woes for Hearts
Hearts manager Jim Jefferies could be without nine players for the SPL visit of Dundee United.
Ruben Palazuelos is out through suspension while Andy Driver (knee) and Gary Glen (hamstring) are also sidelined.
There are doubts over in-form striker Calum Elliot, Marius Zaliukas, Lee Wallace, Darren Barr, Stephen Elliott and David Obua.
Hearts midfielder Eggert Jonsson insists he does not expect Dundee United to be tired from their chaotic European trip when they travel to Tynecastle on Sunday.
Peter Houston's side will be looking to bounce back after being defeated by Greek side AEK Athens 2-1 on aggregate in the Europa League on Thursday night.
The tie was marred by controversy, however, as the venue of the second leg changed twice.
However, Icelandic internationalist Jonsson doubts whether United's hectic week will affect the team.
He said: "There has been a lot of chaos surrounding their match and the preparation, but they have had two days to recover.
"It might affect them a bit but I don't think it's going to matter. Both teams will have 11 players and it's going to be the same pitch and ball. I don't think it matters if they have played in Europe."
Dundee United will recall strikers Jon Daly and David Goodwillie for the trip.
The pair were dropped to the bench for the AEK Athens game with Sunday's clash in mind.
Forward Danny Cadamarteri is a doubt after picking up a muscle strain in the second leg of the 2-1 aggregate defeat to the Greek side but midfielder Danny Swanson is available after making his comeback from injury in midweek.
United midfielder Danny Swanson is struggling to come to terms with their Europa League exit after missing a late chance to put United in the group stages.
Swanson blasted a shot just past the post with minutes remaining in their 1-1 second-leg draw as they pressed for the goal that would have put them through on away goals.
He said: "I should have scored, we should be through.
"The manager has told me to forget about it, that it's not my fault and I suppose the way to look at it is I was there to try and take the chance.
"I know myself, though, and I know what I am capable of. However hard it may have looked from up in the stands, that was the kind of chance I expect to score from.
"When I hit it I thought I was going to see it in the back of the net and I can't believe I missed. I blame myself, but maybe given time that will change."
Gomis seals United point
Dundee United substitute Morgaro Gomis scored a late wonder strike to give the visitors a share of the spoils against Hearts.
In a chaotic week that saw the Tannadice club knocked out of the Europa League by AEK Athens, Gomis struck an unstoppable 25-yard drive high into the net to cancel out David Templeton's first half goal.
The equaliser came minutes after Hearts goalkeeper Marian Kello saved Jon Daly's spot-kick.
Following an exhausting midweek trip to Greece, United's plans at Tynecastle were disrupted as early as the third minute when Danny Swanson pulled up clutching his hamstring after a bursting run from midfield and was replaced by David Robertson.
In the football that was played during the early stages, the hosts fashioned the first chance after five minutes.
Templeton teed up Kevin Kyle outside the box but the marksman blasted a shot well over Dusan Pernis' crossbar.
United were struggling to deal the Kyle's height advantage with the striker winning just about everything in the air.
Craig Thomson's cross was knocked down by the former Kilmarnock player but Adrian Mrowiec's effort glanced off the top of the bar.
United threatened for the first time when Barry Douglas swung a dangerous low cross into the six yard box and Kello did well to get to the ball ahead of Daly.
Hearts winger Templeton then unleashed a stinging left-footed drive from an angle inside the box that was pushed behind by Pernis.
The home side invited pressure on themselves through slack defending that culminated in the hosts conceding a corner just as David Goodwillie was about to pull the trigger inside the box.
However, from the resulting set-piece Hearts broke on the counter-attack and took the lead through Templeton in the 30th minute.
Santana raced clear of Garry Kenneth from deep inside his own half before finding Templeton charging into the box.
The winger's heavy first touch looked to have narrowed the angle with Pernis rushing from his line but he slipped a delicate right-footed reverse shot into the corner of the net.
United carved open the Hearts defence three minutes before the break when Daly powered forward and teed up Craig Conway. But the sought-after midfielder blazed a shot over the bar from inside the box.
In a scrappy start to the second half, Goodwillie beat the offside trap but any advantage he had on the Hearts defence was lost when he cut inside and was fouled by Darren Barr.
Douglas stepped up to take the free-kick 20 yards out but his poor left-footed effort was blocked by the wall.
At the other end, Templeton cut out a Keith Watson pass and had room to run at the United defence. After making his way to the edge of the area, the former Stenhousemuir player struck a right footed shot that was deflected just past the post.
Conway was without doubt United's most dangerous player and he hit a left-footed drive from 20-yards just over after spinning away from Eggert Jonsson on the edge of the area.
United were handed a chance to level when referee Craig Thomson pointed for a penalty after spotting a handball in a congested box.
Skipper Daly stepped up to take the spot kick but his tame effort was palmed clear by Kello to the delight of his team-mates.
Before United could take the resulting corner, the referee appeared to send off Hearts coach Gary Locke from the technical area.
The visitors were level four minutes from time, however, when substitute Gomis struck a stunning 25-yard strike high into the net.
David Robertson's cross was only partially cleared and Gomis pounced with a half-volley that flew into the top corner.
United finished the game on the front foot as Conway cut inside in the box before having a shot repelled by Kello.
