Stewart cleared but trio are banned

BY foxsports • December 11, 2009

Michael Stewart's red card reprieve means Hearts now have three players suspended for Saturday's SPL game against Dundee United.

Ismael Bouzid, Ian Black and Suso Santana are all banned following their dismissals in Sunday's chaotic defeat at Hamilton.

Ruben Palazuelos returns after attending the birth of his first child, Jason Thomson is back from a hamstring problem, while Lee Wallace and Jamie Mole should also be fit.

The same applies to Janos Balogh (hamstring) and Marian Kello (illness), but fellow goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald (ankle) is out, and striker Callum Elliot (knee) is a major doubt. Andrew Driver (knee) and Marius Zaliukas (ankle) remain sidelined.

Hearts (from): Balogh, Kucharski, Goncalves, Jonsson, J Thomson, Palazuelos, Obua, M Stewart, Kingston, Witteveen, Nade, Wallace, C Thomson, Novikovas, Mole, Templeton, Glen, Kello, J Stewart.
