PREVIEW : HEARTS -v- INVERNESS CT
The Caley Jags are looking forward to this weekends match versus Hearts and are keen to exorcise any demons that may be left over from the leage cup encounter which played out in the Jam Tarts favour at Easter Road just a few weeks ago.
Fortune hasn't favoured us of late but Terry Butcher refuses to dwell on such things and insists that his staff and team keep on looking forward and don't fall into the trap of over analysing the situation.
Both sides were on the wrong end of 3-0 defeats last week and Hearts have not had their troubles to seek off the field either in the lead up this game with their fans doubtless focussing more on events surrounding their major financial backer and Ukios Bank's recent administration.
Three draws do little to seperate the sides this season and few will forget our trip to Tynecastle last August where we found ourselves 2 goals and a man behind shortly after the half way point, only for us to pull it back, with Connor Pepper's last gasp strike earning a place among the highlights of 2012. Hearts have only lost 2 games in 10 at home but the cracks might be appearing to show, especially with Zaliukas out injured.
Richie Foran remains out of contention through injury for this weekend, but Terry assures us he'll be back next week...if not for the match versus Dundee United wind week, then definitely for our long overdue visit to near neigbours, Ross County on 2nd March.
It's been a difficult few weeks but many of us feared a dip at some point and this would appear to be it. The vital thing is we get out of the hump as soon as...and more importantly the we don't allow heads to drop.
