Hearts are set to welcome back Alim Ozturk and Prince Buaben for tomorrow’s Premiership clash against Dundee United as they attempt to bounce back from their Scottish Cup exit against Hibernian.

Skipper Ozturk was suspended for the Edinburgh derby showdown Buaben, meanwhile, was absent due to a hamstring injury

However, head coach Robbie Neilson insists both men will be in contention.

Igor Rossi and Jamie Walker, making just his second start since October, came off at Easter Road, but Neilson has allayed fearsover their fitness.

“[Prince] Buaben will be back and [Alim] Ozturk will be back,” he explained. “Igor Rossi was taken off because he had tight calves. The rest are fine. Walker is just back from a long-term injury and he’d worked really hard, so he tightened up a bit.”
