Hearts v Dundee Utd preview
Hearts boss Gary Locke will welcome winger David Smith back from a knee injury for Friday night's Scottish Premiership clash with Dundee United.
There is also good news for the Gorgie manager with Jamie Walker almost recovered from a foot injury, although the 20-year-old is still a few weeks shy of returning to action.
Midfielder Callum Tapping (knee) will also miss the clash with United as he continues his search for fitness.
Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara may start Brian Graham in the Scottish capital after the striker came off the bench to kickstart the remarkable 3-2 comeback victory over St Mirren.
