Robbie expects RFS challenge

26 October 2022

The Hearts boss suspects our Latvian opposition might have a trick or two up their sleeve when they come to Gorgie for the penultimate match of Group A action in the UEFA Europa Conference League.
With just two matches left to go, and with qualification to the knock-out rounds still up for grabs, Robbie knows RFS may switch up their style of play in the hunt for points at this precarious time.
“We’re not really thinking that far ahead, to be honest with you. Where we go from here will depend on what happens in the other games. We have to win to give ourselves some sort of chance.
“It’s interesting, when you watch their (RFS’s) away games recently away to Fiorentina and Istanbul; they really sat in and defended. Tomorrow night will be a lot different because they need a result if they’re hoping to qualify. They play different styles, so we’ll see whether they change their system to reflect how they might play at home. We’ll wait and see.
“Of course, recently we’ve played well in periods of matches. The disappointing thing is that we haven’t picked up any points. We all know that these are good players though, and I know that they’re displaying good performance levels.”
