Grant Gillespie headed the only goal for the Scottish Premiership newcomers in the closing few seconds of the contest at New Douglas Park.

Neil said: “We don’t read too much into the result as that’s our first 45 minutes.

“Hearts have already played three or four games - so to play as well as we did was pretty pleasing.”

The visitors came close to breaking the deadlock in the first half when Jamie Walker struck the bar with a fierce shot from just outside the box.

But the decisive moment arrived in the 90th minute as Danny Galbraith’s chip into the box was met by Gillespie whose looping header crept inside the right post and just out of reach of the diving Hearts keeper.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
