Hearts vs. Aberdeen team news revealed as Andy Halliday recovers from injury

Hearts boss Robbie Neilson has named his team to face Aberdeen.

The clash at Tynecastle will see the Dons wear their gang outside last season after Hearts refused to wear their home change kit.

Aberdeen’s two kits collide with Hearts’ brown and the Dons could have been forced to wear the Jambos top if they couldn’t find a third kit.

But it’s a strong Hearts side looking to bounce back from last weekend’s 3-2 loss to Celtic in the Premier Sports Cup.

It was a game that could have been messy in the first half, but an improvement in the second half saw Hearts score two goals before collapsing.

Craig Gordon will think he could have done better with Kyogo Furuhashi’s winning goal last week and he has a chance to redeem himself today.

Neilson continues with a fullback three with John Souttar joined by Craig Halkett and Peter Haring, with Michael Smith and Alex Cochrane as wingers.

Beni Baningime is joined by Andy Halliday in midfield as it is a leading trio of Josh Ginnelly, Liam Boyce and Gary Mackay-Steven.

FULL TEAM: Gordon, Souttar, Haring, Halkett, Smith, Cochrane, Baningime, Halliday, Ginnelly, Mackay-Steven, Boyce

Subtitles: Stewart, Walker, McEneff, Smith, Denholm, Henderson
