Hearts won the last contest between the sides in May, as goals from Kyle Lafferty and Steven Naismith helped defeat Neil Lennon’s men 2-1 in Gorgie.

A Hearts spokesperson said: “Hearts fans have backed the club fantastically well all season and this match will be no different.

“Our home end tickets have sold out which means there will be an incredible atmosphere under the famous Tynecastle floodlights.

“The club may potentially have a limited number of tickets to make available for sale once returns are factored in so we would encourage fans to keep an eye on official channels for any further announcement in the lead up to the game.”
