Steven Naismith has confirmed that Beni Baningime and Aidan Denholm are in contention for Heart of Midlothian’s home fixture against Aberdeen on Saturday after the pair each picked up knocks against Dundee.

The two midfielders started for Hearts in Tuesday night’s 3-2 win over Tony Docherty’s side, and both were taken off after picking up niggles, but the duo are available for Saturday’s game in Gorgie.

“Everybody that was involved on Tuesday is fine,” Naismith told Hearts TV.

“Yes, there have been knocks that they had to come off with, but they are more impact [injuries].

“At the time they hinder them but everyone has trained today [Friday] and they are available for tomorrow.”

The head coach also provided updates for Liam Boyce and Cammy Devlin, both of whom have been sidelined with December with complaints of their own.

Naismith added: “Cammy is progressing well but Boycie is still at that wee niggly stage and we don't want to push him.

“There isn't going to be an end-point on that one but Cammy has pushed on now. He is out on the pitch doing a lot of running, and is involved in part of training. He has went to that next level.”

Barrie McKay, the team’s only long-term absentee, remains out for the foreseeable and is not expected to return to first-team training for another month.
