Hearts started the season like title challengers, and led the way early on.

When they then went on a run when a win couldn’t come it was all ‘doom and gloom’ as to what Hearts could achieve? Would that top six place, as targeted, even be possible?

A couple of wins and all of a sudden the Jambos are Scottish Premiership title contenders again!

Robbie Neilson’s not getting carried away by anything after successive wins were secured with a two-nil win over Ross County as the objectives are the same now as they were in the summer, to finish in the top six with him telling the BBC.

‘At the start of the season the aim was top six.

‘People were talking about us challenging then you lose a few games and everyone’s talking about can we get in the top six.

‘Now we have won two and people are asking if we can challenge again so we’re not going to get carried away.’

A top six finish ‘should’ be achievable but if Hearts can maintain the form, shown in the opening months for the duration of the season, then you would think as this goes on the target might be set a little higher?

Victory at Tynecastle moved Hearts to within two-points of Aberdeen in second and if the Jambos can get higher than a top six finish then it’ll be ‘great’ for Neilson but the Head Coach knows continued hard work will be needed regardless.

‘We are a team that’s been promoted from the Championship so if we can get higher than top six then great, but we have to earn results and keep working hard.’
