Heart of Midlothian captain Danny Wilson has implored his teammates to be brave in the face of an expected tough contest with Hibernian on Thursday.

The Jambos take on the Hibees in the Edinburgh derby at Easter Road having failed to win in six league outings but Wilson wants them to step up against an opponent who have toughened up since Terry Butcher took the reins.

"Each team has their own style but I'm not worried about us being bullied," he said.

"Hibs have got a lot of good players, maybe they will try and bully us or maybe they'll try and play football; you never know.

"If they are going to try and bully us then we need to stand up to it.

"There have been games where we've been found wanting in that department so we need to make sure that doesn't happen."
