Man 'punched Hearts goalkeeper' during Edinburgh derby
Edward Harrold, 23, denied assaulting Zdenek Zlamal when he appeared in court.
A man has appeared in court charged with assaulting Hearts goalkeeper Zdenek Zlamal.
Zamal was allegedly punched by a fan during the Edinburgh derby with Hibs at Tynecastle on October 31.
Edward Harrold, from Stoneyhill Road, Musselburgh, appeared at the city's Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
The 23-year-old pleaded not guilty to punching Zamal on the head and causing him to fall to the ground.
A trial date was fixed for February next year.
During the bad-tempered 0-0 draw, Hibs manager Neil Lennon was struck with a coin in a separate incident.
