What would your team and formation be? We need to win so we should play with two up front. I would make a few changes after such a bad performance last week against Motherwell, bringing in Calum Elliot, Ryan Stevenson, Larry Kingston, Ian Black and Eggert Jonsson.
What are Hibs' strengths and weaknesses? You always feel that Hibs are capable of scoring goals but they always concede too. They have been struggling for months and Sol Bamba's absence won't help them steady the ship.
How will you counter their strengths and exploit their weaknesses? We need to keep things tight at the back. When we come forward, I'd like to see David Templeton and Lee Wallace supplying crosses into the box because David Obua gave Hibs nightmares with his aerial ability last time and he can do it again here.
What do Hearts have to do to win the game? We will have chances to score and we need to be much more clinical than we were in the last derby. If we'd taken our chances that day, it could have been six or seven. I think that JJ will have us ready for the game. A 3-1 win is my prediction.
