Robbie Neilson insists there's plenty of hard work ahead for the Jambos.

Robbie Neilson is delighted to see his side in second position going into Saturday’s clash with Hamilton, but insists there’s plenty of hard work ahead for the Jambos.

Hearts’ 4-0 win at Firhill last weekend saw them move past Aberdeen and to within six points of leaders Celtic. Speaking to the media on Friday, Robbie said:

“We’re in a good position, but we started the season well and everyone talked us up. We then lost three on the bounce and people questioned whether we’d be able to make the top six.

“So we’re not getting carried away, there’s plenty of work to do.”

The Head Coach also gave his thoughts on the appointment of Jon Daly as the club’s new U20 coach. The striker is currently under contract at Raith Rovers and will take up his new role at Tynecastle in January.

“Me and Craig (Levein) both know Jon quite well; Craig managed him at Dundee United and I played alongside him there.

"He’s a good character and we’re confident he’ll make a good coach and be someone who our young players can look up to and learn from.”
