Wee Jambos defeated by Steelmen

26th January 2016

Hearts U20s suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Motherwell on Monday night.

Hearts U20s lost 1-0 to Motherwell in Monday night's Development League fixture at Ochilview Park.

The Jambos fielded a young side on the night, with Jack Hamilton and Soufian El Hassnaoui the only over-age players in the squad. 

A more experienced Motherwell side soon began to dominate proceedings but failed to convert their chances in the first-half.

Hearts improved after the interval and carved out several opportunities of their own, but were eventually undone by a close range Ross MacLean strike.

Next up for the Wee Jambos is Sunday's Scottish Youth Cup tie at home to Queen of the South. The match is a 1pm kick off at Tynecastle.
