Match preview

Following a thoroughly frustrating night at Tynecastle, Heart of Midlothian will be looking to bounce back.

On Thursday night, Robbie Neilson’s side welcomed FC Zürich to Gorgie, 2-1 down from the first leg in St. Gallen.

The Jambos dominated the first half but could not find the crucial breakthrough; Liam Boyce going closest with a header.

Then, in the 54th minute, the match swung in Zürich’s favour, with Peter Grant sent off for diving, his second booking of the night.

A man down and needing a goal, Hearts were caught cold at the other end as the Swiss champions snuck through 3-1 on aggregate.

Nevertheless, that’s not the end of the line for Hearts, who do drop into the Europa Conference League group stages, awaiting Friday lunchtime’s draw.

Back in the Premiership, they were beaten for the first time this season last Sunday, going down 2-0 at Celtic Park, with both Alex Cochrane and then Toby Sibbick sent off towards the end.

Even though those two are both suspended, can Heart of Midlothian get back on track?

St Johnstone meantime were beaten 1-0 by Aberdeen at McDiarmid Park last weekend.

This means Callum Davidson’s side have failed to score in three of four league games this season, their only points coming in a last-gasp 2-1 victory over Motherwell.

So, despite absentees and fatigue, Hearts come into this clash as favourites.
