While the hosts got the better of St Johnstone in midweek, the visitors were beaten by Celtic to fall five points adrify of their neighbours.

Hearts are currently sitting in third place in the Scottish Premiership table, holding a three-point advantage over fourth-placed Aberdeen, who have played a game more.

With Celtic and Rangers disappearing into the distance, winning the race to finish behind the Glasgow giants would secure guaranteed European football next season, after Hearts exited the Europa Conference League at the group stage this season.

A run of eight defeats from 10 league matches has put Lee Johnston’s future at Hibernian in some jeopardy over recent weeks, and any light at the end of the tunnel following a 4-0 victory on Christmas Eve was soon blotted out by Celtic on Wednesday.

Entering 2023 occupying eighth in the Premiership standings ahead of their trip to Tynecastle, Hibernian are without a derby victory in seven attempts.

Johnson’s first Edinburgh derby may have ended level through Boyle’s last-gasp heroics, but his side have won just twice on the road so far this season and they now tackle one of their toughst tests of the campaign with confidence at a low.

Hearts vs. Hibernian Head to head

In the previous 102 meetings between these two teams across all competitions, Hearts have claimed 42 victories while Hibernian have won 27, and they have drawn in 33. Hibernian have scored 105 goals and conceded 138 in the process.

Hearts Team News

Stephen Humphrys should be available for Hearts after an ankle problem and Stephen Kingsley could return from concussion.

Craig Halkett’s inclusion remains a doubt, so Toby Sibbick should continue in the back three, while Lawrence Shankland is expected to partner former Walsall striker Josh Ginnelly up front.
