It wasn’t the easiest of games for Blazej Augustyn to make his Hearts return from injury on Sunday was it against Aberdeen? With him part of a Jambos defence that was all over the place in the first half of that three-one defeat!

Talking to the Official Website Augustyn, while disappointed with the Aberdeen defeat, feels we’ve got to put that defeat into perspective against a good Dons side.

However, he did say, as much as he’s now looking forward and not back, Hearts aren’t as bad as the scoreline suggests and definitely in general aren’t as bad as the half time scoreline of three-nil would have people believe!

‘Aberdeen are a good team, as you can see. They’ve won eight games in a row now, so obviously we are disappointed but we are now going to look ahead.

‘Aberdeen played well but we are not as bad as the scoreline suggests. It was three mistakes and three goals, we couldn’t do anything more, but when you’re 3-0 down it’s too late by this point.’

On his own personal performance the Polish defender admitted he wasn’t at his best, he knows it and we do, but he wasn’t going to make excuses yet his match fitness was definitely lacking and the only way to improve upon this is by getting more minutes of the pitch.

Likewise, as with the result, his own performance going forward is something he’s going to focus on and improve upon, adding.

‘It was only five weeks I was out but I need more minutes to get more confidence. I am not trying to clear myself, so I will try to do my best in the next games.

‘We all make mistakes. I don’t want to make any excuses for myself. We just lost it today. We have to try and forget about how bad this was.’

Hearts had made a stunning start to the season but we’ve now suffered three defeats in the row, so should this mean expectations are lowered?

He wouldn’t say this but did add ‘nobody wins every game, even Barcelona don’t win every game’ but we should take some confidence from the second half showing, even if it ‘was too late’ with this cause for optimism.
