Driver won't rush Hearts comeback

Hearts winger Andrew Driver passed a fitness test on Tuesday but is cautious about returning for the Edinburgh derby on Sunday. The 20-year-old has been sidelined by an Achilles injury since the end of August.

"I'm feeling pretty good," he told Hearts News Today. "I had a full fitness test yesterday and we'll see how things go this week.

"I'm desperate to be involved on Sunday but, having said that, I want to make sure I'm ready and don't want to let the team down by coming back too soon.

"I won't risk it if I'm not feeling right. I'll be training this week and then speaking to the manager about everything and then a decision will be made."
