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."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
