Robbie Neilson’s men were held to a goalless draw at Hibernians Ground last next, but dominated most of the match and had a Conor Sammon goal disallowed for offside.

They are favourites to advance when the sides meet again at Tynecastle next Thursday. If successful they will then meet Russian side Krasnodar.

The first leg takes place on 28 July, with the return fixture coming exactly one week later.
