Once again Kilmarnock travelled to Tynecastle and secured victory over Hearts, managing this feat for the third consecutive time over the weekend.

Another Killie defeat means Hearts now have an unwanted stat to their name.

Hearts need a quick fix for home form

The result means that since Hearts last won a home game back in March, Kilmarnock have won there twice. They’ve also won the same amount of league games in Gorgie as the Jambos in 2019.

They are telling statistics that show you all you need to know about Hearts’ Tynecastle problems. They simply haven’t been good enough at home this calendar year.

In their last 11 league games at home, Craig Levein’s side have won one, drawn four and lost six. Tynecastle used to be a place teams feared, now Premiership sides will be expecting points in Edinburgh.

It’s something Levein has to sort urgently. If the Jambos are to push for what now looks like an unlikely top six finish, they need to start picking up points at home.

The fact that Kilmarnock have managed to win more games at Tynecastle than Hearts have in the last six months is simply not acceptable. Jambo supporters deserve more than what’s being offered to them on home soil right now.
