Hearts attacker Sean Clare has revealed that a discussion in the dressing room following the 0-0 draw with Ross County could have led to a turnaround in Hearts’ season.

Clare disclosed that the players and management spoke after the draw at Tynecastle about needing to improve their performances.

The discussions worked, as Hearts defeated Motherwell 2-1 in the Betfred Cup at Fir Park.

“Everyone spoke their mind”

“Everyone spoke their mind, said things clearly, and then we left. I’m sure everyone thought about it when they went home” he said, as reported by Edinburgh Live.

“Then we came back in, worked really hard in the following week and managed to get a good result. It was everyone.”

The discussion between the players and manager Craig Levein certainly paid off at Fir Park. The next test the Tynecastle side face is a tough one though, when they take on Celtic in Glasgow.

Slow start to league season for Tynecastle side

Despite the win over Motherwell, it has been a slow start to the league season for Hearts. They only have one point after two games.

However, they can take confidence from the win at Fir Park. Getting a result at Celtic Park will be a lot tougher than getting one against Motherwell.

But if Hearts can keep their new-found togetherness they can pull off a good result against the Scottish champions.

It will not be easy, but the win against Motherwell was a good sign for the Tynecastle side.
