Andy Driver, David Obua, and Deividas Cesnauskis ruled out of Hearts' Falkirk clash

ANDY DRIVER, David Obua and Deividas Cesnauskis have been forced out of Hearts trip to Falkirk tomorrow with a combination of injuries, and the African midfielder may be absent for up to a month according to manager Csaba Laszlo.
Obua returned from international duty with a muscle complaint, as did Cesnauskis, and Driver will not be risked due to a swollen ankle.

Obua's injury is causing Hearts' medical staff most worry at present.

Laszlo said: "We have a problem with David. It is not easy to fly four days in three different countries. It's maybe ten or 12 hours from here to Africa on a plane. He's been from here to Uganda, Mali, Niger, Mali and then back here. Now he has a porblem with his muscles. He may be out for the next three to four weeks.

"Yesterday in training he had pain so we must be careful. We don't want to make the same mistake as with Mike Tullberg and force it too early.

"I think he needs three weeks, maybe four.

"Andy Driver is completely out for this weekend. I hope he is back for next week. He has a small inflammation in the ankle so we wait and give him the chance to recover.

"Cesny came back from his national team with a muscle problem. He is also out for the weekend."

Recent loan signing Adrian Mrowiec could make a surprise start against Falkirk due to the enforced absences.
