Hearts' Tynecastle Stadium has been passed safe ahead of Saturday's Premiership visit of Motherwell.

Police had raised concerns about the fitness of the new main, chiefly pertaining to the reliability of its electrical systems.

However, the ground has been ruled safe and the match will go ahead as planned.

"Hearts have kept us fully informed. We have not had any real doubt that the game was going to go ahead," Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson said.

"Safety and certificates have to be paramount, but that's all done and dusted, so we've been able to concentrate on the match."

Last month, following delayed renovations to the main stand, Hearts finally returned to Tynecastle after a short spell using the national rugby stadium at Murrayfield.

Craig Levein's side have drawn all three home matches since building was completed in Gorgie, taking a point apiece from league games against Partick Thistle, Ross County and Hamilton Academical.

A faulty fire alarm delayed kick-off for Saturday's match against Hamilton.
