Hearts will play Friday night football again in the Championship, this time they travel north to Inverness. This will be their third Friday night game this year after previously beating Ayr 1-0 and drawing 1-1 at Queen of the South. This game shouldn't be any easier and arguably the toughest of the 3.
Pre-season, Inverness were fancied to be Hearts' closest rivals and they maybe haven't quite lived up to that expectation. They are currently lying in 6th position but they do have up to 3 games in hand on teams above them due to numerous match postponements over the winter period. Good results from these games in hand will seem them in the play-off places.
The issue here is there is an unknown with Inverness for this game. Manager John Robertson will be missing as he is on compassionate leave, so Neil McCann will take charge temporarily. McCann does have Premiership experience managing Dundee so he isn't the worst choice as a temporary manager.
We don't fully know how the team will react to a different manager in the dugout, although i can't imagine he will change too much as this could only be a 1-match thing.
Inverness are traditionally strong at home, therefore, i'm hoping for a close game.
