It was a good Gorgie display but they couldn’t take all three points. Sean Clare was sent off before Niall McGinn netted a superb free kick to ensure that the Dons took a point back to Pittodrie.

A surprising Hamilton win in the Lanarkshire derby means that Hearts are now five points adrift at the bottom. Aberdeen meanwhile closed the gap on Motherwell in third to just a point.

Whilst they are further adrift, Hearts showed plenty of spirit and fight to get a positive outcome. It’s left some a bit more positive about life under Stendel and what the rest of the season holds following a bleak 2019.
