John McGlynn believes SPL opponents set to ‘take a doing’ as manager places faith in goal glut

JOHN MCGLYNN believes Hearts are due to hand out a hammering to one unlucky opponent when they finally find their form in front of goal.

The Tynecastle side have enjoyed the majority of possession in a number of their matches this season but have managed to rack up just two victories in the SPL after failing to convert their chances.

They more than held their own against Celtic at Parkhead on Sunday but, having seen Callum Paterson spurn a glorious opportunity, again ended the 90 minutes empty-handed.

However McGlynn is confident that Hearts can turn the tide in some style and said: “We have just got to hang in there and make sure that we get the breaks. One of these days we are going to score a number of goals because the chances are going to go in and someone will take a bit of a doing.

“When that happens the confidence will flow through the team and we’ll get a bit of consistency going and we will go on a good run.

“We put in a good performance against Celtic and we look to kick on from there. It’s frustrating that we are not taking our chances; they are there to be missed and they are there to be taken and hopefully we start to take them.”

McGlynn meanwhile feels that Rudi Skacel will be a positive influence while he is training with the club. The Czech star is back in Edinburgh as he looks for a club and has been offered the use of Hearts’

Riccarton facilities.

McGlynn added: “He will bring a wee spark to training.

“He is a great character, a

great ambassador for the

football club and he has always had a great nature about him and he will add a bit more to training.

“He has got a bit of banter as well, which will come across well with the boys.

“It’s good to have him in that situation.”
