Danny: No complacency

13th February 2015

Skipper knows Jambos will continue to give their all ahead of tough Livingston clash.

Danny Wilson insists that nobody at Tynecastle is getting complacent, despite the club’s healthy lead at the top of the Championship.

The Jambos head into tomorrow’s match against Livingston with a 19-point gap at the summit of the table and despite the visitors sitting at the foot, the skipper knows his side will be in for another difficult game.

Speaking to the media this morning, Danny said: “We’re not complacent. We had a tough afternoon last Saturday, as we did when we went there in December, so we won’t be complacent.

“I think Livingston’s position in the table is false, due to the points deduction that they’ve faced.

“They’re a team that should be out of the bottom of the league. Mark Burchill’s got them playing well.

“We won’t be complacent, we’ll be fully prepared because we know we should be in for another tough afternoon.”

New recruits Genero Zeefuik and Kenny Anderson hit the back of the net against Livingston last week, and Danny believes that the competition for places at Hearts is keeping everybody on their toes.

“People have come in in the last few months and it can only be good for competition and people getting to top form,” he said. “I don’t’ think we’ve been in top form for a number of weeks now but we’ve got players coming back and you need to take into account the players who haven’t been playing a for a while.

“These things can happen but we’re just trying to work our way through it and keep getting results. In terms of the competition it can only be a good thing going forward.

“Most of the season, whenever we’ve had a few players coming back from injury we’ve then lost a few due to injury.

“Hopefully we can get everybody fit now and have a full strong squad to choose from.”
