Hearts U20s suffered a 2-1 defeat to Rangers in last night's Development League clash at Ochilview Park.
The visitors took the lead early on in the first half through Liam Burt, but Russell McLean's headed effort levelled the scores on the stroke of half-time.
A Zak Rudden penalty shortly after the restart sealed the win for the visitors, however.
Jon Daly's side will have a chance to make amends this coming Sunday when they face Rangers in the 4th round of the Scottish Youth Cup. The match takes place on the indoor pitch at the new Oriam Performance Centre at Riccarton (5pm kick-off).
