Alex: "Tynecastle is a special place"

22nd October 2021

Alex Cochrane wants Hearts to keep using the famous Tynecastle atmosphere to their advantage as the boys gear up to host Dundee on Saturday.

The on-loan Brighton & Hove Albion man has cut an impressive figure since joining in the summer and has been an integral part of the Jambos’ nine-game unbeaten run.

He reckons a large factor in that form has been the support he and his teammates receive from the stands and thinks there is even more to come from this team.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Alex said: “I got told about it when I came up here, how good the atmosphere is. When the fans are on your side they are class.

“We’re using that to our advantage and we need to keep using that. Tynecastle, when the place is rocking, is a special place. It’s nice to be involved when the team is doing well.

“It helps a lot. A quick start gets the crowd lifted. It helps them. A quick start is what we need.

“For me, personally, I feel there is still a lot more to come from me and from the team. On the training pitch we’re working hard every day to try and improve.

“After games we’re sitting down, either individually or as a team, to analyse our games. Every week and every day is a chance to improve and every player is doing that.”
