HEARTS keeper Jack Hamilton admitted it was understandable the Jambos fans hit the boos during the 1-1 draw with Partick Thistle at Tynecastle.
Ian Cathro, the youngest boss in the Premiership at 30, followed up last week’s 2-0 defeat from Rangers at Ibrox with a dismal display against the Maryhill outfit.
Hamilton said: “It’s part and parcel of football, I suppose. It’s not just here. At any club the fans pay money and want to see you win.
“It’s our job to win for them and against Thistle we didn’t. Everybody goes through a wee rough spell.
“We haven’t performed well in the last two matches, but did before then against Motherwell and Rangers. There were so many positives, so we have to get back to that.
“The new gaffer has come in and not changed much. He’s got his ways he wants to play and will start introducing that over time.
“It was just one of those days, it just didn’t go our way. We had a few good few spells, but it’s about doing that more often in the match. We should be capitalising on these games.”
Ultimately the failure of Hearts to consolidate on their first-half pressure cost them the chance to keep closer tabs with Rangers in second, although they got a perfect start when Johnsen nodded them ahead. However, Sean Welsh headed his side level two minutes after the break.
Jags gaffer Alan Archibald said: “The performances in each half were night and day. It feels like two points dropped because we edged it after the break, but the challenge for us now is to get the complete performance for 90 minutes.
“We need to build on this starting against Celtic on Tuesday night.”
