Hearts opened the game in a positive frame of mind and we were forced to defend and survived a couple of close shaves only to go behind in the 15th minute. In a concerted home piece of pressure Wilson provided the ammunition and Billy KING fired the ball past Thomson from around 15 yards. King then threatened again three minute later but in the 20th minute the Blues levelled the game when Callum GALLAGHER fired the ball past Neil Alexander after good build-up by Cowden saw Oyenuga’s shot parried by Alexander. Then as Hearts looked a little stunned Oyenuga saw his right foot shot saved. Seconds later Wedderburn limped off to be replaced by Brownlie but the visitors kept the Jambos at bay and the only real danger came shortly before the break when Ozturk saw his shot saved by Thomson. Hearts started the second-half in complete charge and forced us on to the back foot and took the lead in 48 minutes when Jamie WALKER got his head to an Eckersley cross and his effort beat Thomson. Seven minutes later it was 3-1. Walker went down in the box, under Brownlie’s tackle, and Osman SOW blasted the spot-kick into the net. Cowden were playing second fiddle now and it started to become a damage limitation situation, although in 58 minutes Higgins saw his shot saved then six minutes later Oyenuga shot wide, but with 12 minutes left the game was put out of our reach. Sow did the spadework and sub Dale CARRICK fired a 20 yarder past Thomson. CARRICK was proving a handful and he hit the bar before, with four minutes remaining, he shot home number five to complete a bad day for us.
