Hearts have sold out the away end for Sunday's match at Easter Road and Wilson is simply relieved that the club appear to have a viable future.

Despite the fact that they will be playing in the Championship next season, Wilson feels there are plenty of grounds for optimism after a turbulent period on and off the pitch.

Hearts, who are in the process of coming out of administration, are unbeaten in four matches.

Wilson told the club's website: "The support is incredible. From moment one in the season they've backed us all the way. I'm just glad for them, more than anybody, that the news off the pitch means that there's going to be a Hearts next season.

"There was a real possibility over the last few weeks that it might have gone the other way. I'm delighted for them. We've tried to do our best on the pitch this season and it's not quite been enough.

"But if we can maybe go down to Easter Road on Sunday and get a good performance and continue that for the rest of the season, it'll give home something to look forward to next season and hopefully it'll be a brighter future for everyone."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
