Watch us go

Match-winner Andrew Driver insisted today that victory over Kilmarnock can prove to be the catalyst to kick-start Hearts' season.

The England U21 international capped his first start of the campaign with the only goal of the game in last night's rearranged Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash with Jim Jefferies' side.

His wonderful 31st-minute strike was enough to deliver the Jambos' first win of the season and with Csaba Laszlo taking his side to face Celtic at Parkhead on Sunday, the 21-year-old admitted it was a timely result.

"We get criticised for not scoring enough goals but we showed out there that when we play at our best we are going to create chances and on another day we might have score three or four," he said.

"The way things have gone this season, they were very hard games to start with. Dundee United and Rangers can go either way any time.

"We weren't worrying too much and hopefully we can take confidence into the Celtic game.

"It's a place where you can get the ball down and pass it around and with guys like Suso able to cause a bit of damage, we can go there confident and get the season properly kicked off."

The Englishman was delighted to make first start of the season after a frustrating opening to the campaign, his right-foot thunderbolt which gave Mark Brown no chance, the icing on the cake.

"It's been a frustrating start to the season but to get off to a flier like that gives you a bit of confidence," he said.

"I had a problem with my foot and maybe did too much on my first day back at training and my body wasn't ready and that set me back.

"I then got a knock against Zagreb which was just a dead leg but I've been working hard so my fitness isn't too bad.

"I didn't feel as bad as I thought I would do today so happy with the way it went."

And as for that effort with his right peg?

"I don't where it came from! I didn't have too much time to think about it, just hit it and hoped for the best. Luckily it went."
