Upbeat Hearts forward Uche Ikpeazu has said that Hearts are just one result away from going on a ‘good run’ after another draw.

Ikpeazu thinks that the Tynecastle side should’ve won but doesn’t reckon a draw is the end of the world.

He told the Sunday Post (sport, page 9, 27/10/19): “Livingston is a tough place to come to and I don’t think it’s a bad point. I think we should have won but they beat Celtic 2-0 at home.

“Sometimes in football it becomes even harder to break them down when they go down to 10 men. It’s too early in the season to be making predictions but I don’t think we’ll be down at the bottom of the table.

“I think we’re definitely just one game win away from going on a good run.”

Hearts need to turn draws into wins

Hearts may have just one defeat in four Premiership outings but that doesn’t paint the real picture. They’ve still won only once in ten games this season, drawing five and losing four.

They seem to be able to pick up a single point here and there but these need to start turning into wins. Against the ten men of Livi, they really should have had the quality to break down their opponents with an extra man.

Livingston are no mugs even with a man down but the Jambos may live to regret this game. They’ll look to make up for it over the next two Premiership games against basement dwellers St Johnstone and tenth place St Mirren.

Six points from these two fixtures games must be mandatory for Craig Levein and his side.
