Hearts have 11 players carrying injuries ahead of their Scottish Cup quarter-final against St Mirren.

Michael Smith remains out with a back injury and John Souttar, Nathaniel Atkinson, Gary Mackay-Steven, Cammy Devlin and Alex Cochrane all went off injured against Dundee United last weekend.

Craig Halkett, Beni Baningime, Josh Ginnelly and Peter Haring are among the other players affected and Robbie Neilson will give some players fitness tests on the morning of the game.

St Mirren manager Stephen Robinson has a full-strength squad to select from for the trip to Tynecastle.

Goalkeeper Jak Alnwick is available after missing the last two games while self-isolating.

Matt Millar is back in contention after missing the last three games through injury, while Conor McCarthy has fully recovered from the ankle knock that forced him off against Ross County last weekend.
