Scouting Report: Hearts (H)

Scouting Report: Hearts (H)
<div style='background-color: #0B610B;'><a href='' title=''>amazon banners</a></div>

Tomorrow (Saturday) we play Hearts in the league for the first time in a couple of seasons.

"We are on the up again as far as performances go!"
They've been doing well, had a cracking start to the season, particularly for a newly promoted club but their last couple of games have been poorer for them.
We, on the other hand are on the up
again as far as performances go!

Mulgrew is out with a thigh injury and is even likely to miss the Scotland games in October.

I believe Armstrong is still out for now as well.

Charlie Mulgrew is again sidelined for the hosts

Simunovic twisted his ankle during training which is why he missed the midweek game but Deila thinks he should be OK for tomorrow's game, however they may not want to risk him so that he's definitely fit for next Thursday's game.

Deila rested a number of players midweek so that they would be fresher for this weekend and Thursday's Europa League game.

I expect we will see:

Lustig - Boyata - Simunovic/Blackett - Izzy
Brown - Bitton
Forrest - Rogic - GMS

Subs: Bailly, Janko, Blackett/Tierney, Ambrose, Commons, Johansen, Ciftci
