Could Kevin come back today?

Kevin Kyle remains Hearts' biggest injury concern ahead of today's home game against St Johnstone. The striker has missed the last three game with a groin problem and is doubtful alongside Calum Elliot, Darren Barr and Jason Thomson. Rudi Skacel, who has been struggling with a calf problem, came off at half-time in the 4-0 loss at Celtic on Wednesday, but Andrew Driver (thigh) is the only definite absentee.

Gary Glen is bullish about Hearts being still in the hunt at the top despite the midweek defeat. Hearts beat Rangers last Saturday to extend their unbeaten run to 11, but no sooner had their title aspirations been boosted than they were beaten at Parkhead by the leaders. But the said: "We're not out of it now, we're going to keep doing our best and we need to get results. We've got a big game on Saturday and we're looking forward to that - we need to get a result there. We've got the fight; we believe in ourselves.''
