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."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
