Hearts begin life back in the Scottish Championship when they host Dundee in the opening game of the season at Tynecastle on Friday night. Both sides have won all League Cup games played over the last two weeks, but attention now turns to the league campaign.

Hearts Form

Hearts have shown no hangover from their relegation from the Scottish Premiership last season, winning all three Scottish League Cup games played in the build up to the league season.

Robbie Neilson's second spell in charge of Hearts started with a 1-0 win over Inverness CT and they repeated the scoreline against Cowdenbeath. A third straight win came courtesy of a 3-1 victory over Raith Rovers to leave Hearts top of Group A.

Hearts had won one of their last seven Scottish Premiership matches prior to the season being suspended and relegation decided on a points-per-game system.

Hearts expect to have Liam Boyce and Michael Smith available after international duty with Northern Ireland. The pair missed the League Cup games.

Dundee ended the Championship season in third place when the action was halted in March due to coronavirus, 18 points adrift of rivals and champions Dundee United.

James McPake's side have warmed up for another season in the second tier with two League Cup wins. They saw off Forfar Athletic 3-0 at home before recording a 2-0 win at Brora United, and are on course to qualify from Group B.
