Obua, Driver and Cesnauskis all out

Hearts have been dealt a triple injury blow ahead of their visit to the Falkirk Stadium. The exclusion of Andy Driver is more precautionary than anything else and he should be fit to face Inverness next week. Deividas Cesnauskis and David Obua have returned from international duty with muscle complaints, with Hearts physios fearing that Obua could be sidelined for up to a month.

Driver will be missed most after an impressive start to the season – he managed a goal and an assist in the most recent victory over Hamilton.

Despite these absentees, Csaba still has quite a few options available to him. Miko was on the bench last week and will almost certainly start tomorrow, either on the right or the left wing. Ksanavicius prefers a role just off the striker but could be asked to fill in for Driver on the left.

Other options include Gary Glen, although playing him would probably mean a change of system as I am not sure him or Mole would be suited to playing in the hole with the other as a lone striker. Christian Nade could play just behind Mole in attack, although it is likely he wouldn’t be able to last the whole match.

So the team for tomorrow could look something like this:


Jonsson Zaliukas Berra Wallace

Kingston Stewart Karipidis Mikoliunas
