Yesterday’s news that Danny Grainger will be out for ten weeks is a huge blow, because we don’t have any real cover at left-back – the same as last season. It illustrates the gamble that was taken when Lee Wallace was sold not to recruit someone as cover.
Saturday’s game is huge for Hearts. We have to get back to winning ways but will have to be at our best to leave Tannadice with all three points. It would be nice to see John Sutton get a run-out, but I’m not holding my breath.
