Forrest crowned January cinch Prem Player of the Month

06 February 2024

Alan Forrest has won January's SPFL cinch Premiership Player of the Month Award.


The winger played a starring role as the men in maroon went through the entire month on a blistering unbeaten streak.


Forrest played a key role as Hearts began 2024 with a trip to West Lothian, assisting twice as strikes from Lawrence Shankland and Kenneth Vargas sunk the Lions in a 2-1 victory.


That creativity continued, with Forrest again at the heart of another roaring performance as his two assists sent Hearts on their way to a thrilling 3-2 comeback win against Dundee at Tynecastle.


His tricky wing play proved decisive in other ways too, securing a Jorge Grant penalty that helped claimed a vital three points against Aberdeen in Gorgie.


Starting February in the same vein, Alan struck against Dundee on 55 minutes, allowing Steven Naismith's side to regain a foothold in Saturday’s game at Dens Park, before going on to win another 3-2 thriller against the Dark Blues.


With 26 appearances in maroon to his name so far this season, he has scored three goals in total.
