How to watch
The Edinburgh derby has not been selected by Sky Sports with the Old Firm taking place the same day. It means the game will only be available on pay-per-view via Hearts TV. The match costs £12.99 with build-up starting from Tynecastle Park at 2.30pm.
The teams met at Easter Road on the second weekend of the season. It appeared the visitors would be walking away with all three points when Lawrence Shankland squeezed a shot past David Marshall after a Barrie McKay assist. However, Martin Boyle produced a moment which saw Easter Road, well 3/4s of it, erupt when, deep into stoppage time he steered an Elie Youan cross past Craig Gordon to earn Hibs a point in what was his first appearance since returning from Saudi Arabia side Al-Faisaly.
Hearts are without a number of first-team stars, including Beni Baningime, Liam Boyce and Craig Gordon. The latter was recently ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a double leg break. Defenders Craig Halkett and Stephen Kingsley are doubts for the fixture, as is Peter Haring, but Steven Humphrys could return.
Hibs will have to make do without centre-back Ryan Porteous with the Scotland international suspended after picking up a booking in the 3-2 defeat to Rangers at Ibrox. Martin Boyle is unavailable and likely to miss the rest of the season, while Jake Doyle-Hayes and Lewis Miller remain out. Mykola Kuharevich will be a late call after he pulled out of the squad for the Celtic game in midweek during the warm-up.
This will be the 332nd competitive Edinburgh derby meeting. Hearts continue to dominate with 146 wins but the current draw tally stands at 99.
