I see from the photos of training on the Club Twitter account that Big Bevis is back training after the shoulder injury, not sure if he is available for Saturday though.

The big man's height could be useful against Lafferty though I still worry about his tendency to dive into a tackle, especially within his own 18 yard box.

In the old days, when Lafferty was at Hearts, we never seemed to lose when he scored against us.

I don't see him walking back into the team.    We now have high quality problems.  

Defence has been solid with Magloire /Lamie. 

Could see Dec replacing Magloire as both right sided central defenders. 
Not sold the Mugabi is better than either Magloiore or Lamie  and to his credit Lamie has been playing well.

I wouldn't worry about. Our injury record means that we rarely have competition for defensive spots for more than about one game.

I think we can look forward to seeing the same team start against Killie. Don't see why the manager would change it.

He may bring back one or more of O'Hara, Gallagher and Mugabi, if fit. He watches the players every day, we don't. Who knows we may have picked up more illnesses or injuries. I have my own views but I haven't a clue what Mr Alexander is thinking.

I said Gallacher would start last game. He didn’t. But I believe that had more to do with him being ready and match fit after his injury. 

He has now had a further two weeks training and a bounce game or two. 

Also the last game before the International break, so I expect we will see him back in the starting line up in place of Magloire. The rest of the team that started v Livi I would expect  to stay the same assuming no injuries etc.

We are 3 games unbeaten. I wouldn't change anything unless injuries require it. 

Any news on Watt?

Agreed, Gallagher has got to earn his place. Magliore's first two games were scarily bad but he's made that position his own now. Lamie has also been excellent and doesn't deserve to be dropped.

 

Dropped in favour of our captain who picks and chooses when he plays due to contract issues would be very unfair.

Narrator: and that is how internet rumours become fact.

I’m in the Gallagher starts gang, he’s the best centre half we have at the club and we can still mathematically be relegated.

Magliore has settled in well after a shaky start but we definitely miss Gallagher's aerial ability. Since he was absent a few teams have caused us big problems at crosses and set pieces.

Someone on here said that Alexander is a very straightforward guy, if he says that if you play well you keep your place then he should stick by it.

I've got no issue with the same team starting as against livi assuming everyone is fit.

Not a chance we will get relegated, it's not happening. Stick with the guys that have got us results recently.

 

For all that Killies pitch is an utter abomination, I'd still prefer to see them stay up at the expense of that Mickey Mouse team fae Hamilton and that teuchter mob.

The key to our performance will be whether or not Tony Watt is fit, and how we cope if he doesn't make it. I certainly don't think we should be taking any risks with him, especially on a plastic pitch. He has become too important to s for us to risk ending his season now. If Cole and Roberts could work together as a pair, I could see some sense in playing Gallagher in a back three/ five, but I have my doubts about this, and also worry that nobody in our midfield would be capable of playing further up the field to provide the link play and make the runs that are what Watt has been doing so well.

Right now, once again, I'd be happy with a point.

Get rid of the plastic from the premiership so Accies 12th and Killie 11th and getting pumped in the playoff would do for me, Ross county is a good away day :)

I can’t stand Accies but I do enjoy the derby, though the way we regularly underperform in it is infuriating. I’d be happy enough for them to stay in the top flight if we started putting them in place more often.

It’ll be good to have Hearts back in the league next season at the expense of Killie or Ross County. When fans are allowed in Tynecastle is one of the best away days.

I would just like to see the end of plastic pitches in the top flight regardless of the club. You simply can’t play decent football on them, the Livi one is an abomination of an excuse for a pitch.

Can’t disagree with that. The sooner they’re banned the better.
