Hearts have been handed real boost ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Heart of Lions with the return of injured trio including out-of-favour goalkeeper Tetteh Luggard.

Luggard has resumed training with the side after recovering from a groin injury while Emmanuel Laryea and Stephen Tetteh have shaken off their respective knocks.

Luggard is expected to replace injured Philemon McCarthy and fight to reclaim the number one spot.

He was the preferred number shot-stopper under former coach David Duncan but lost his position after series of blunders.

Hearts have been hit with an injury-ravaged season which has seen as many as ten senior players miss out on key fixtures.

Captain Moro Abubakar, Obed Ansah, Thomas Abbey, Kenneth Okoro, Gilbert Fiamenyo, Romeo Agban, Kofi Abanga, Gerald Odupong and Ezekiel Tetteh have all been sidelined with injuries.
