First Team

Jordan's hungry for more

23rd October 2015

Jordan McGhee's hoping for more game time on Saturday.

Jordan McGhee played the full 90 minutes of last Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Dundee United and the young defender has now expressed his desire to nail down a regular spot in the starting eleven.

Jordan slotted in at right back in the absence of the suspended Callum Paterson last Sunday and helped his side keep a clean sheet at Tannadice. Speaking to the media at Tynecastle on Friday, he revealed he’s now hungry for more game time.

“It was great to get 90 minutes under my belt against Dundee United and I believe it will do me a world of good.

“It’s tough sitting on the bench and waiting, but it shows that if you’re patient then your time will come and it’s up to me to take my chance.

“The gaffer and the coaches talk to me regularly and that helps a lot. My goal is to break into the first team and hold down a regular spot.”

The Scotland U21 international is now eager to help his teammates to another three points against Ross County on Saturday.

“We’ve played every side once now, so we’re settling into the league. There’s still a long way to go and the league is wide open at the moment.

“We’ve done reasonably well so far but it’ll be tough. There’ll be a lot of clubs looking at the league table and fancying their chances of a European spot. Hopefully we can kick on with another win on Saturday. ”
