Hearts winger Suso Santana faces up to six weeks on the sidelines after undergoing hernia surgery. He told Hearts News Today: "I had the problem for a little while and played a few matches with it and it was decided that an operation was the best thing to do.
"The doctors have told me I'm probably looking at six weeks but I want to get back before that. Hopefully, I can do it in four weeks as I want to get back into the team as quickly as possible."
He added: "It's disappointing to miss the derby this weekend but I hope the players can put the defeat to Motherwell behind them and get a good result in front of our own fans."
