Thomson to miss Motherwell clash

The 18-year-old full-back missed Saturday’s 1-0 win at Falkirk with

a knee problem and is also likely to sit out the game and Sunday’s

Edinburgh derby with Hibernian. Ian Black returns after a

three-match ban for his red card in the chaotic defeat at Hamilton,

but Laryea Kingston (hamstring), Calum Elliot (knee), Jason Thomson

(hamstring), Jamie MacDonald (ankle) and Andrew Driver (knee)

remain sidelined. Hearts (from): Balogh, Kucharski, Zaliukas,

Bouzid, Goncalves, Jonsson, Palazuelos, Obua, M Stewart, Suso,

Nade, Wallace, Black, Novikovas, Mole, Templeton, Glen, Kello,

Robinson, J Stewart.
