No Need To Panic At Tynecastle
Updated Thursday, 17th September 2009
There is no need to panic at Hearts according to Andrew Driver. They will be there or there abouts.
Hearts finally picked up three points for the first time this season, against Kilmarnock on Tuesday night. Many pundits were pointing the finger at possible unrest at the club which was expected to be one of the challengers again this season. Andrew Driver claims the reaction to Hearts' poor start to the season has been over the top and asked people to look at the opposition before accusing the Tynecastle club of failure to live up to last years showing. Winger Driver scored a stunning half-volley on his weaker right foot to seal a 1-0 victory over Kilmarnock in the rearranged game at Tynecastle. Csaba Laszlo's men had already lost two and drawn one of their opening three games, casting doubt on their ability to replicate last season's third-placed finish. But England Under-21 international Driver never had any doubt the Jambos would come good. Driver started his first game of the campaign last night following heel and thigh injuries. He said: "The first few games, they were very hard games. Everyone's saying, 'They're near the bottom of the league; they've not performed'. We've played games against Dundee United and Rangers, which can go either way any time when we're playing. I think everyone was worried too much and hopefully now we can take confidence into the game against Celtic." The manner of Driver's winner united both managers and the player himself in astonishment. Despite appearing to add a whole new string to his bow, Driver is refusing to set himself a goalscoring target this season. He said: "

I usually have a year when I don't score a lot and then I score a bit more. This year, I'm due a few more so hopefully with a bit of luck I can get a few. I'm not going to set a target, though; you just get disappointed if you do that."
