Hearts v Inverness CT preview

Hearts boss Gary Locke will have just 12 senior outfield players to choose from for the Scottish Premiership clash with Inverness Caley.

Locke confirmed on Tuesday that attacking midfielder Ryan Stevenson would be out of action for up to six weeks with a torn hamstring.

The Jambos are also missing back-up goalkeeper Mark Ridgers (knee) and wide man Jason Holt (foot) as they look bounce back from two heavy defeats.

Caley Thistle boss John Hughes has no new injury concerns ahead of Saturday's match at Tynecastle.

Hughes started his Caley reign with a 0-0 draw at St Mirren last weekend and will be hoping to pick up his first win over the administration-hit hosts.

Midfielder James Vincent is still absent with a leg fracture, but has been given the green light to step up his rehabilitation.
