Hearts predicted line up vs St Mirren as Steven Naismith makes change
Hearts are set for an away fixture against St Mirren this weekend following a triumphant weekend at Tynecastle on Saturday. Following the international break, the Jambos boss Steven Naismith took time to reset and regroup his squad after an intense schedule.
The work evidently paid off with Yutaro Oda and Liam Boyce helping to secure a 2-0 win for the home side. However, the question is now whether this run of form can continue as the Jambos face the second team in the league this weekend.
The Saints are undefeated so far this season and sit just two points behind Celtic in the Scottish Premiership. With the match taking place at Paisley 2021 Stadium, Hearts will be in for a tough battle but Naismith believes his squad can keep their composure following a tremendous defensive display last weekend.
The Jambos will also welcome back Odel Offiah to the squad after the 20-year-old defender returned to his parent club Brighton following a medical scare. It remains to be seen whether Offiah will form the starting line up but ahead of the weekend’s action, here is Edinburgh News’ predicted starting XI for Hearts vs St Mirren.

Prince Harry has been ordered to pay the Mail on Sunday more than £48,000 after he lost his attempt to strike out part of the paper's defence in a libel case. The Duke of Sussex is suing the newspaper's publishers, Associated Newspapers, over an article written about his fight with the Home Office concerning his security arrangements. Associated Newspapers argue the article expressed an "honest opinion" and did not cause "serious harm" to Harry's reputation.
The gulf between Israel and the US on one hand - and Arab states and much of the rest of the world on the other - couldn't really be greater. With the US diplomatic backing, and with more of its ammunition supplies being shipped to Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made it clear that to achieve his goals of rescuing hostages - but more importantly, in reality, the destruction of Hamas - then a ceasefire is a non-starter. Despite their admirable work, in truth they won't get very far for the time being because neither of the protagonists - Hamas and Israel - seem awfully interested in a ceasefire anyway.
We need to talk about Ukraine. While the world’s attention has been focused on the war between Israel and Hamas, grim tremors have been shaking that rich, black soil. Ukraine’s counteroffensive has failed – or, in Volodymyr Zelensky’s words, “did not achieve the desired results”.
