Hearts troubles were not eased in their opening Scottish Premiership game at McDiarmid Park on Sunday and they remain bottom of the table on -15 points following their 1-0 loss to St Johnstone. The difficult financial situation at Hearts has prevented them from registering any new signings and former Liverpool player Danny Wilson has been the only addition to the squad which finished in the lower reaches of the SPL last term. With a fifteen point deduction it’s going to be a long haul for the Jambos this season, but a victory against their local rivals on Sunday could give them a real shot in the arm and spur them on to pick up some vital points in the coming weeks.
Hibernian were still reeling from their 9-0 aggregate defeat to Swedish side Malmo in the Europa League when they took to the field at Easter Road on Sunday and their fans were again disappointed as the home side went down 0-1 to Motherwell. Hibs fan’s frustration was plain to see as their side spurned numerous opportunies with only three of their eleven shots on goal finding the target. Manager Pat Fenlon will need his strikers to be more ruthless in front of goal this week when they face Hibernian’s local rivals who are desperate for points and will be going all out for the win.
