We've now secured third place barring a monumental collapse but until something is mathematically impossible you can't take anything for granted.
It was a great, open football match against Motherwell and we were always a threat, but there's no doubt that Andy Webster going off at half-time was a pivotal moment in us squandering a three-goal lead.

All down the years, nothing has ever been simple with Hearts as a club and again we're making hard work of tying up third spot. I'm very disappointed for the players that they've not been able to get over the line sooner than this because they've put so much into the season.
It was great to see so many players from Hearts' history at the game on Saturday as we celebrated 125 years at Tynecastle. The occasion got people talking once again about how great a stadium it really is and I think everyone involved with the Save Our Hearts campaign has to take a degree of pride that we reached such a milestone.
I'm absolutely delighted with the point from yesterday's game and I'm really proud of the whole team. To have played with ten men for two thirds of the game and then to have come from behind in the last ten minutes to earn a point really is massive for Hearts. Overall I thought it was a brilliant game and Hearts have now gone a long way to securing third place.
What a crucial end to Saturday's match that could prove to be in the race for third. The way Hearts claimed the points late in the day was similar to how well Dundee United finished the game against us on Wednesday.
WITH Hearts having had a huge advantage over the teams below them in the league for a wee while now, I think we've all been guilty of taking third place for granted.
