Kilmarnock v Hearts preview

Kilmarnock midfielder Liam Kelly returns from suspension for the Boxing Day clash with Hearts at Rugby Park.

Kelly missed Sunday's 1-1 draw with Hibernian but comes back into contention for the visit of the Jambos.

Danny Racchi could miss out again with a groin problem, while the match is likely to come too soon for Garry Hay and William Gros.

Hearts will be without only long-term injury victims Danny Grainger and Jamie Hamill for Wednesday's Scottish Premier League trip to Kilmarnock.

Darren Barr, Jason Holt, Arvydas Novikovas and Mehdi Taouil were included in the squad which beat Dundee United after various injuries, while Scott Robinson was an unused substitute after a dispute with manager John McGlynn was resolved.

Hamill, who is returning from a knee injury, and Grainger, who is in the early stages of rehabilitation from a similar injury, remain out.
