    We are never happy at getting beat, but Hearts are top of the league for a reason, they are an excellent team and I thought they played extremely well in the first half, I think credit should also go to my boys as well being a part time club competing as well as they did especially in the second half, because it is easy to crumble in a place like Tynecastle, where the fans and crowd are down on top of you, as I said Hearts are top of the league for a reason. The disappointing thing was the two goals which we lost, I thought we could have done better but the one thing about that team is they never give in and will not throw the towel in and worked hard, although we didn’t create a lot today, we probably had three chances in the first half all from corner kicks but we kept playing and tried to get on the ball and they never threw in the towel. In the past two weeks Alloa have been playing against Hibs & Hearts which is a dream for our supporters and it is brilliant, the expectation isn’t on Alloa because we are a part time club, the expectation comes from within the dressing room because we still look to come to these places and look to win games, unfortunately when you come up against the teams at the top of the league and playing as well as Hearts are it is difficult. We will now totally focus on our next game against Queen of the South and make sure that we cut out the mistakes that are costing us goals.
