Hearts v Partick preview

Hearts manager Gary Locke will be without Paul McCallum for the Scottish Premiership clash with Partick Thistle at Tynecastle on Wednesday night.

The striker's loan spell at the Gorgie club is over after he returned to West Ham United for treatment on an on-going ankle injury.

Callum Tapping remains on the sidelines with a knee injury.

Partick Thistle are waiting on three players to prove their fitness ahead of the Scottish Premiership clash at Hearts.

Kris Doolan and Lee Mair came off with knocks during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Hibernian, while Prince Buaben missed the Easter Road clash.

Defenders Stephen O'Donnell (hip) and Aaron Muirhead (knee) and midfielders Isaac Osbourne (ankle) and Sean Welsh (groin) all remain on the sidelines.
