"We go into Friday night's game against a team who blow hot and cold. We need to take advantage of that and take the game to them. Press high up the park and don’t give them time or space to play. An early goal to settle us down and go from there. We need a win before the split to give ourselves a better chance. Back the team...KTID."
Freddie 'Fingers' Woodman – In recent games he has shown how good a keeper he is. Made a few crucial saves for us. Just one criticism, he needs to take control of his box more and talk to defenders. Good pair of safe hands.
Greg Taylor – What can you say about this kid. Improving with every game and can only get better. Good left peg and engine. Links up well with Jones.
Scott Boyd – Experience in rear ranks which we badly need. Good in the air and talker. A leader from the back.
Kristoffer Ajer – This young lad has an experienced head on his shoulders. Good all rounder and comfortable with the ball at his feet. Needs someone to go beyond him.
Luke Hendrie – Mr. Reliable. Like Taylor he has a good engine. Solid at the back and going forward.
Gary Dicker – Most improved player this season for me. Starting to be a leader in the middle of the park. Our new midfield general. Good reading of the game and passing.
Jordan Jones – Has the pace to cause any defender problems. Only thing he lacks is a final cross ball or shooting but that will come hopefully.
Iain Wilson – This young lad is growing in confidence and stature either as CD or CM [old champ manager kicking in there dude?]. Good on the ball and in the tackle.
Cal Roberts – Hasn't had much game time but I like his drive and directness. Running at defenders and has the skill to cause problems.
Greg Kiltie - Our talisman. Good to see Greg back. I would play him in a free role just off Boydie. Give him support and go beyond Boyd for his flick ons.
Kris Boyd – The big man can still score goals but needs help and better service from wide. His hold up and link play is good but needs someone to go beyond him. Step up Kiltie.
"In this team we have pace on the wings, solid in the middle and at the back. Wingers need to stay wide to stretch Hearts, giving Kiltie the freedom in the middle of the park to back up Boyd and get the goals".
