Robbie Neilson’s men trailed 3-0 after 52 minutes in what was a disastrous performance up until then. The team had conceded two penalties, one of which was missed with Craig Gordon making a brilliant save.

The team rallied with Josh Ginnelly coming off the bench to provide a spark, setting up Liam Boyce to make it 3-1. Thereafter it was Hearts v Jamie MacDonald with the ex-Tynecastle goalkeeper making a number of fine stops, while other chances were also passed up. Boyce added a second but even with loads of stoppage time an equaliser couldn’t be found.

But it was hard to get past those first 52 minutes. So, how did the players involved rate out of ten?

Player ratings scale - 10: One of the best performances you've seen. 9: Outstanding. 8: Very good. 7: Good. 6: Average. 5: Poor, 4: Very poor. 3: A terrible day at the office. 2: Abysmal. 1: One of the worst performances you've seen.
