St Mirren star Ryan Flynn is looking forward to facing Hearts at Tynecastle this afternoon but admits he’s fully focused on frustrating the Gorgie faithful and inflicting the Jambos’ first home defeat of the season.

The Buddies star likes the “intensity” the crowd at Tynecastle creates and admits it is one the newer players at the club will enjoy, calling the capital ground a “tough place” to go and pick up points.

However, Flynn is determined to head back to Paisley with something to show for their day in Edinburgh and believes St Mirren’s solid away form can help them surprise Robbie Neilson’s Jambos.

“Tynecastle is always a tough place to go,” Flynn said. “But we’ll be set up ready to make it tough for them.


“Our away form has been better than our home form so far this season, so hopefully we can continue that.

“Everyone can beat everyone in this league. It’s going to be another tough game for us but we’ll just focus on ourselves.

“Our performances have been good of late and we’re looking forward to playing Hearts.

“Everyone talks about the atmosphere at Tynecastle. It’s one that our players who haven’t played there will be looking forward to especially.

“Ones that have, like myself, are all looking forward to getting back there and feeling that intensity again.

“We’ll be trying to keep their supporters quiet and frustrate them.”

A win for St Mirren would really help cement their place in the top six while the Jambos will have an eye on leapfrogging Celtic and taking second place in the Premiership table ahead of Celtic playing tomorrow.
