Alfredo Morelos serves the final game of his three-match ban for the visitors.

Defender Toby Sibbick could make his Hearts debut in the Ladbrokes Premiership clash with Rangers on Sunday after arriving from Barnsley on loan.

Hearts full-backs Michael Smith and Aaron Hickey have been given little chance of recovering from injury in time but Sean Clare returns from suspension for the league’s bottom club.

Peter Haring remains sidelined with pelvic trouble and both Jamie Brandon and Callumn Morrison are still out.

Hearts provisional squad: Pereira, White, Halkett, Dikamona, Sibbick, Souttar, Bozanic, MacLean, Meshino, Damour, Ikpeazu, Naismith, Walker, Henderson, Irving, Moore, Avdijaj, Garuccio, Zlamal.
