    Loan Watch: Four in action

    Four young loanees were in action in the Ladbrokes Championship and League Two at the weekend.

    Jake Hastie played 74 minutes for Alloa Athletic in a bottom-of-the-table clash with Falkirk.

    The two sides were locked on points going into the game, with the Wasps narrowly ahead on goal difference.

    Former ‘Well man Deimantas Petravicius opened the scoring for the Bairns, with Paul Paton doubling the advantage in the first half.

    Hastie then set up Alan Trouten to get his side back into the game just before the break, and the on-loan winger had just been subbed off when Trouten struck the equalising goal.

    Morton hosted Dundee United, looking to claw their way back into play-off contention.

    Ross MacLean came on as a sub with 18 minutes to go, and Gregor Buchanan’s equaliser arrived shortly after in a 1-1 draw at Cappielow.

    In League Two, Neil McLaughlin played 90 minutes for Stirling Albion as they drew 1-1 with Queen’s Park, while PJ Morrison was back in action for Albion Rovers in their 4-2 loss at Elgin City.

    Robinson praises spirited performance

    Stephen Robinson was left disappointed after his side fell to a 1-0 defeat against Hearts.

    But it was due to the fact he believed his side were more than deserving of more against the Tynecastle outfit.

    Speaking at full time, the ‘Well boss said: “It’s frustrating because we played well. I got the consistency from my team I was looking for in terms of performance, but we were unlucky today.”

    Hearts 1 – 0 Motherwell

    Hearts 1 – 0 Motherwell

    Motherwell put in a strong display but fell just short in the capital as Hearts won 1-0 at Tynecastle.

    Stephen Robinson made four changes from the side who drew 1-1 with Celtic, with Peter Hartley and Liam Donnelly missing out through injury, Allan Campbell dropping to the bench, and Connor Sammon ineligible to face his parent club.

    In came Andy Rose and Alex Rodriguez-Gorrin to the midfield, whilst Curtis Main returned to the starting eleven and Charles Dunne made his return from a lengthy injury lay-off.

    And, in truth, it was a terrific showing from Robinson’s men, who were extremely unlucky to find themselves a goal down after 14 minutes.

    They were even unluckier not to be a goal up after just eight minutes when Main curled a terrific finish in to the top corner from the edge of the box. However, celebrations were cut short when Willie Collum ruled the goal out for a foul in the build up to what was a terrific finish.

    Jusy minutes later, the hosts took the lead.

    From a cross in to the box, Peter Haring’s wayward header ricocheted off Dunne’s shoulder and beyond Mark Gillespie to gift the hosts a fortuitous lead.

    But from that point onwards, the Steelmen looked on top in the capital.

    Dunne nearly made amends when his header from a David Turnbull corner flashed narrowly wide of the mark.

    Mans towards the end of the encounter, Danny Johnson nearly kept his strong goal scoring form up when he fired goalwards from inside the box, but it clipped the heel of Rodriguez-Gorrin as the hosts held on for all three points.

    Need to Know: A look at Hearts

    Motherwell travel to the capital on Saturday to face Hearts in the Ladbrokes Premiership. 

    After an impressive performance against Celtic on Wednesday night, the Steelmen take on the Jambos looking to find some domestic consistency.

    Here’s what you need to know about Saturday’s opponents.

    Momentum swing

    Craig Levein’s side enjoyed a stunning start to the Premiership campaign, remaining undefeated until suffering a 3-1 loss against Rangers at Ibrox.

    Since that day in October, the side from the capital have lost five games, four consecutively and now find themselves fourth in the table.

    Fitness boost

    Much of the downturn in form at Hearts can be put down to crucial players picking up injuries.

    Christophe Berra is back to fitness, but the Jambo’s are still without Steven Naismith, John Souttar, Jimmy Dunne and Uche Ikpeazu.

    The four of them were instrumental to the club’s early season form and understandably they have suffered without them.

    Home form

    Craig Levein’s men have a terrific record on their home turf this term, going the first eight games at Tynecastle without suffering defeat.

    However, since then they haven’t won in their last three, but faced some tricky opposition in those matches.

    First up was Hibs, who they drew 0-0 with, before losing against Kilmarnock and Rangers.
