Hearts midfielder Jamie Walker seems to be running into form at just the right time for the Edinburgh club. His double at the weekend was enough to defeat Morton and earn the three points which took Hearts back to the top of the Championship table.

Walker was pleased with his performance against the Greenock based side.

“I’m delighted”

“I’m delighted. Going into the start of the season I always pride myself on scoring, I’m delighted to get two goals and it’s an important three points” he said.

Even though Hearts have another league game ahead of the Scottish Cup Final, thoughts are already turning to the game against Celtic at Hampden on the 20th of December.

 

The game is particularly special for Walker, as he is aiming to banish memories of his only regret in football. That took place back in 2013, when Walker was part of the Hearts side which lost the League Cup Final 3-2 to St Mirren. The match was particularly disappointing for Walker as he was taken off in the 64th minute of the game.

Chance to make up for previous defeat

He admitted that he thought he would reach more cup finals, but has had to wait seven years for a chance to make up for that loss. However, the player wants to make sure that the focus is on the Queen of the South game first.

“That’s really my only like, regret in football losing that game. As a player I was quite young and I thought I would get there again quite recent, but it’s took seven, eight years. It’s a big game, it’s one I’m looking forward to, but we’ve for Queen of the South first.”
