How the Hearts players rated in 2-0 win over Peterhead as quartet stand out

Hearts eased to a 2-0 win at Peterhead to get their Premier Sports Cup campaign off to a strong start.

Gary Mackay-Steven used his pace to open the scoring in the first half with Liam Boyce doubling the lead after the break thanks to some good build-up play involving Peter Haring and Michael Smith.

Hearts could have won the game more comfortably but passed up a few opportunities in each half.

Robbie Neilson will likely be pleased with his team, considering it was their first competitive action in more than 70 days and the fact Hearts lost on their last trip to Balmoor.
