Heart of Midlothian are preparing for a League Cup semi-final with Rangers which takes place at Hampden Park on Sunday afternoon. Steven Naismith's men will be looking to reach the final of the competition for the first time since 2013 and for only the third time since they last won it in 1962.

Looking ahead to the encounter, writer Joel Sked is joined by Scott McIntosh to preview the match. The pair look at what they want to see from Hearts and head coach Naismith, discussing the big questions over team selection, namely right wing-back and who plays in the centre of the pitch. The duo analyse Rangers, who are the players to be wary of, but also how the Ibrox side, who are missing key players, can be got at.

They each give a prediction - a positive one - and look at the ramifications of a win or defeat.
