McGlynn: Hearts will come out fighting


Hearts manager John McGlynn has insisted that his players will come out fighting against Inverness Caley Thistle on Saturday, after their defeat to Kilmarnock last week.

Speaking this morning at his pre-match press conference, McGlynn said: “Last Saturday didn’t go well for us at all. I think with younger players you’re going to get that inconsistency at times. Overall, we didn’t play horrendously badly. But we did lose cheap goals, and at the end of the day it’s goals that win and lose matches.

“Kilmarnock did play very well on the day, it was probably their best performance in a number of weeks. Experience in that kind of situation is great. Kilmarnock had the experience and we didn’t.

“We had high expectation levels going into that game and we came out of it with a kick in the teeth. But you’ve got to pick yourself up and dust yourself down and get back out fighting. Inverness were the same on Saturday, they were beaten 3-0 by Motherwell. Both teams will be going out there to try and make amends.”
