First Team

Haring looking forward

9th August 2021

Peter Haring says he and his teammates know what it takes to compete in the top flight after Saturday’s win at St Mirren made it six points from six.

The Jambos followed up an opening day victory over Celtic with a 2-1 win against the Buddies, which was the boys in maroon’s first league success in Paisley since 2010.

With six wins on the bounce in all competitions, the Austrian admits that while he’s happy with the start to the 2021/22, nobody at Tynecastle will be getting carried away.

“We definitely haven’t proven anything yet,” he said. “It’s only two games into the season. It’s a nice start but we have to continue playing like that with that mentality.”

"Some games didn’t go that well last season but we got back into the Premiership, where we belong. The cup last season was very disappointing and hard to deal with for us and the fans. We never doubted too much.

“We know the quality we’ve got and what we have to do to win Premiership games. The first two games went well but we haven’t proven anyone wrong yet. It will be a long season.

“Six points out of six is what we tried to do. It’s two good results. We’ve been top before – the first season I came here. We had a really good start but I remember how it ended and it was not that great.

“We won’t get too carried away. Beating Celtic was big for us and Saturday helped again. We can now look forward.”
