Eva pleased with Hearts’ ruthlessness

18 September 2023

Hearts Women manager Eva Olid believes her side finally got what they deserved in Sunday’s 6-1 thrashing of Partick Thistle.


The Jambos came into the match on the back of three straight defeats and despite positive performances in those losses, Hearts struggled to take their chances in front of goal, particularly in the defeat to their Edinburgh rivals.


Against the Jags however, Hearts had no such issues and after racing into a 4-0 lead before the interval, Georgia Timms added two late goals in the second half to bag herself her second hat-trick against the Maryhill club.


Speaking to Hearts TV at full-time, Olid said: “Finally, we got what we deserved."


“Our performances in recent matches have been excellent, but we have not been clinical in front of goal. Today, we were and because of that, we got the three points.


“The early goal was so important and for us to score four goals in the first half, you can breathe a little easier and then try to play a little more relaxed in the second half.


"Scoring goals was our intention though. We spoke before the game about wanting to score more goals and I am just so happy for the team.


“I think with us having had a tough game on Wednesday, we could feel that but that is the week done and now we have a week to relax. Some players will go away on international break, and we will come back stronger for the game against Rangers and go into it with total confidence."
