Inverness could take advantage of Tynecastle turmoil
Rangers make move for Hearts' star striker Kyle Lafferty
BT Sport 2, 3pm Sunday
Hearts' preparations for this crucial Betfred Cup tie have been disrupted by the prospect of star striker Kyle Lafferty moving to Rangers.
Inverness could take advantage by battling to at least a draw at Tynecastle.
Hearts need to win to top their group having had two points deducted for fielding an ineligible player against Cove Rangers.
A bid for Lafferty, their most important player, is the last thing they needed and their influx of 13 new players may need time to settle in anyway.
Hearts legend John Robertson will relish taking his Caley Thistle players to his former stomping ground and they are in good form.
Inverness or draw double chance
1pt 8-5 bet365
Hearts won't use midfielders Malaury Martin and Ross Callachan, who have both been told they are free to leave.
Inverness will be without Angus Beith, who is missing after a hip operation.
Including last season, Inverness have now won ten out of their last 11 games.
