Conor Sammon was left frustrated by his time at Hearts– and he’s hoping to get one up over his former employers with Falkirk.

The Bairns take on Hearts in Scottish Cup action next weekend.  A familiar face to most Jambos, Sammon was contracted to the Tynecastle club between 2016-2019, leaving permanently in the summer for Falkirk after 27 appearances and two goals.

Falkirk deserve their match against Hearts says Sammon as he looks ahead to his meeting with old friends: “We battled and I cant remember Arbroath having too many chances. We deserved to go through in my opinion. We knew going into the game that incentive was there for us to get ourselves into the next round.

“It sets up a really good tie against Hearts, a massive club. It’ll be a super atmosphere which will add to it. You’re always looking to go on a good cup run. But it’s just about getting momentum.

“We’re looking to continue that and keep building on it. It’s been a frustrating time for fans and we’re hoping there’s a bit of light at the end of the tunnel now. My time at Hearts was frustrating.

“I was signed by Robbie Neilson who left in December. It all changed after that with new managers coming in. It was frustrating looking back on it. It’s a huge club with a massive fanbase.

“I’m looking forward to coming up against them, they’re a good side. We’ll look forward to the tie and we know we’re in for a tough test.”
