Hearts U18s maintained their winning record with a gutsy 1-0 victory over Kilmarnock at Oriam.
Murray Thomas' 76th minute winner wrapped up the points for the Wee Jambos, making it four wins on the spin for Hearts - managed by Donald Park with Steven Naismith away on Scotland duty.
It also marked the second consecutive match where a Thomas goal proved decisive with the youngster having bagged the winner away to Hamilton Accies last time out.
After a goalless first half, Mackenzie Ross thought he had broken the deadlock on 72 minutes before seeing his goal ruled out for offside.
Hearts soon had their lead though; Thomas firing home from close range just minutes later after some great work by substitute James Wilson to tee him up from a cutback.
The Wee Jambos held on, and secured the win against a quality Kilmarnock side.
