We must impress

6th May 2016

Don Cowie insists he and his teammates have everything to play for in the final three games of the season.

Don Cowie insists he and his teammates are determined to return to winning ways against Ross County as they look to end the season on a high.

The experienced midfielder will come up against one of his former clubs tomorrow afternoon when the Jambos host The Staggies at Tynecastle. Although Hearts have already secured third spot in the league, Don insists there’s still plenty to play for in the three remaining games of the season.

Speaking to the media on Friday morning, he said:  

“We’ve got three big games remaining and it’s up to us to ensure we finish the season on a high. It'll be a short break this summer so we want to finish strongly and carry the momentum with us into pre-season.

“It’s all about self-pride, everyone’s playing for their jersey next year. The manager will strengthen in the summer and it’s up to us to ensure we maintain our standards. “

The former Watford and Cardiff City player also revealed he has been impressed by the number of talented youngsters in the club’s ranks.

“It’s been good coming here and seeing how many good young players we have here. It’s been a joy to be around them.

“The longer I’m here the more they come up to me, asking questions and trying to feed off my experience. That was one of the reasons I came to Hearts, I was aware of how many good youngsters play here and if I can help them in any way then I’ll be happy. “
