Hearts Fighting Fund rallies round to help the team

Hearts Fighting Fund rallies round to help the team

At the behest of the administrators BDO, the Edinburgh club had to travel north on the day when they took on Inverness in the Highland capital last month.

This week the squad will head up the A9 in advance for Saturday's game against Ross County in Dingwall - 15 miles further north than Inverness - after funds were provided for a Friday overnight stay.

Manager Gary Locke said: "We're delighted that the Hearts Fighting Fund has rallied round and they have paid for our trip up.

"It is a fantastic gesture and yet again everyone is doing their utmost for the club.

"Myself, the players and the backroom staff are certainly very appreciative that they have paid for us to go up."

Hearts remain rooted to the bottom of the table - nine points adrift of St Mirren - but have eaten seven points into the 15-point deduction with which they began the campaign.

"We have lost the last two games so it is important that we start to pick up points from somewhere," Locke added.

"Looking at the next five or six fixtures, we really have to start picking up points to give ourselves any chance."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
