Hearts: You're the boss

SCOTT JARDINE from Joppa hopes Hearts can consolidate fifth spot with a win over Aberdeen at Tynecastle tonight.

What would your team and formation be? Despite a lack of options up front, I'd stick with a 4-4-2 formation. I'd like to see Smith given a chance up front again with Robinson and, hopefully, Jose Goncalves will be fit again too.

What are Aberdeen's strengths and weaknesses? Aberdeen beat us comfortably in the cup and their defence looked pretty solid. We were awful that day, though, and scoring goals has been a massive problem for Aberdeen this season with just 14 goals in 19 league games.

How do you counter their strengths and exploit their weaknesses: We have been rock solid at the back recently and if we can keep that going, Aberdeen will find it tough to score. However, we need to keep the ball down and play a passing game because we will miss the physical presence of Christian Nade up front.

What do Hearts need to do to win the game: With both teams struggling for goals, it's hard to imagine a high-scoring game. I think the first goal is going to be absolutely massive and if we can get that, I think we will be well on our way to another hugely-important three points at Tynecastle.
