The pair come into the season as favourites to win the title, albeit Robbie Neilson’s men are heavy favourites to repeat their second tier success from back in 2014/15 when they romped to the league with a record points total.

FT: Hearts 6 - 2 Dundee

Another first goal for Hearts. Andy Halliday is brilliantly set up by Walker and fires home expertly.

Stephen Kingsley runs on to a Roberts lay off and rasps a shot into the corner from the edge of the box.

Apologies - some technical difficulties

Irving could count himself lucky with a studs up challenge in the midfield.

Great save from Gordon

Danny Mullen sends a shot in from outside the box only for it to look like it was heading into the bottom corner before Gordon diverted it away.

Hearts were countered by Dundee and just as it looked like McGowan was scoring Irving made a brilliant last-ditch block after working back.

A smart stop from Craig Gordon down low. Afolabi gets into the box but his effort was beaten away.
