Hearts winger Andy Driver has spoken of his desire to regain his club form before thinking about which country he’d prefer to represent.

The winger, who has been in the press a lot lately due to the speculation linking him with possibly switching national allegiances and representing Scotland, is now back in he Hearts first team after struggling with injuries at the start of the season.

However he has struggled to hit anything like the form that earned him so many plaudits at times in the previous campaign, and as such his influence on matches has been minimal at best for the majority of the time.

It’s little wonder that Hearts have been largely ineffective in an attacking sense so far this season. Driver was arguably our most productive player going forward last season but he’s been off the boil, while Bruno Aguiar, our other most creative player, left in the summer and was not suitably replaced. Add the much-documented problems with Larry Kingston into the mix and it really isn’t difficult appreciating how Hearts’ creativity problems have come about.

It doesn’t need to be ALL doom and gloom, though. Driver is a good player and looks as though he just needs to regain some confidence, whereas Kingston is back in the reckoning again and may yet be able to offer something before the end of the season.

The perfect match to give yourself a shake for and get the juices flowing again is surely a derby, and that’s what we’ve got on Saturday. Over to you, gentlemen….
