First Team

Bring on ICT

4th December 2015

Robbie Neilson looking to kick-start tough December period with victory over ICT.

Robbie Neilson has urged his team to get back to winning ways on Saturday ahead of a series of tough fixtures in the month of December.

The Jambos have drawn their last two Ladbrokes Premiership games and the focus is now on returning to winning ways against John Hughes’ Inverness CT tomorrow. Speaking to Hearts TV on Friday, the Head Coach said.

“We’ve got a lot of hard games coming up, starting with Inverness tomorrow. They’re a strong team, they finished third last year and won the Scottish Cup. They’ve beat us already this season so we have to make sure we’re at it tomorrow.”

Robbie was also delighted to see Igor Rossi and Arnaud Djoum extend their contracts with the club earlier this week.

“It’s good to get them signed up, both of them have done really well. They’ve both played well, they’re excellent in training and they’re a good influence on the younger players. “

Hearts go into Saturday's game on the back of eight consecutive home sell-outs in the league, with another big crowd is expected at Tynecastle on Saturday - much to the delight of the gaffer.

“We’ve had eight sell-outs in a row so far so another one would be fantastic. It’s up to us to keep winning however, fans want to be entertained and if we do that they’ll keep coming back.”
