Hearts defence can provide basis for another victory
Jambos can get the better of struggling Ross County
The Tynecastle side's revival under Craig Levein has been remarkable and based on solid defensive foundations, with Christophe Berra a potential player-of-the-year candidate.
County broke a 13-game winless run in style two weeks ago when they romped to a win in Dundee and David Ngog impressed up front.
But all their problems are at the back and when brothers Harry and John Souttar meet up on opposing sides, it could be Hearts' John who enjoys the spoils.
1pt 13-10 general
Ross County last kept a home clean sheet in July.
Greg Tansey, Tony Dingwall, Andrew Davies and Jamie Lindsay are all injured.
Striker Steven Naismith is 50-50, but Don Cowie is fit again. Jamie Brandon is set to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury and Harry Cochrane remains out.
