Michael Beale urges Rangers to show ruthless side against PSV as ‘ruined’ Morton outing won’t cut it in Champions League
The former Hoops boss knows how difficult it can be to get the right deals on the line.
Benitez knows home advantage will be crucial if the Dutch side qualify for the group stage. Dundee’s Championship season got off to a poor start with Hearts losing 6-2 at Tynecastle. The real damage was done in a disastrous first half. Hearts went into a two-goal lead through Michael Smith and Josh Ginnelli. Charlie Adam pulled a goal back but further Hearts goals before the break, from a Liam Boyce penalty and Stephen Kingsley, left the Dees with an impossible task. Dundee improved after the break and Danny Mullen came off the bench to score the D’s second goal. However, that was the end of the D’s fightback and Hearts closed out the game with ease, helped by late goals from Kingsley and Andy Halliday.
Dundee 0 1 Hearts: Substitute Jamie Walker Scores Winner
The Dark Blues made three changes from the team that defeated Borra last week. Cammy Kerr, Finlay Robertson and Osman Soe came on for Christy Elliott, Max Anderson and Danny Mullen. Hearts made no fewer than 10 changes from their Betfred Cup win over Raith Rovers. Only Stephen Kingsley kept his place.
It took just three minutes for Hearts to take the lead as the Dundee defense closed down. The Dark Blues failed to track Michael Smith as he ran on to Josh Ginnelli’s pass, allowing him to cut into Jordan Forster and shoot under Jack Hamilton.
The Dark Blues simply couldn’t get going and mustered no movement in the first 10 minutes. Yet they couldn’t settle on the ball and make all the passes that hurt hearts. Meanwhile the Jam Tarts looked dangerous with every attack, finding space too often and too easily.
Charlie Adam scored the D’s first try, firing 22 yards from goal and drawing a fine save from Craig Gordon. At the other end, Jack Hamilton had to parry a powerful drive from Liam Boyce.

Hearts’ second goal came midway through. A corner was cleared by Josh Ginnelli from 25 yards. He took a touch and fired a low drive through the legs of Dorrance and Boyce and inside Hamilton’s right-hand post.
Dundee had offered little threat up to this point but immediately responded with a fine goal. Charlie Adam picked up the ball in midfield and overcame several ineffective challenges before firing an unstoppable shot past Craig Gordon, his first competitive godfather for the D.
The setback was canceled out by an unfortunate penalty in the 33rd minute. Roberts dummied in a pass that drew two defenders out, allowing Boyce to shoot free. The striker’s shot was headed for the corner flag when it hit Jordan Martial’s arm. BOYCE put away the penalty.
In first-half injury time, Hearts put the game out of Dundee’s reach with a superb free kick from Stephen Kingsley, smashing the ball over the defensive wall and into the top corner from 22 yards.

Dundee replaced Jordan Forster with Jonathan Afolabi at half-time and switched to a 4-4-2 with a midfield diamond. The change allowed the Dees to dominate central midfield and eventually take the game to Hearts.
Adam went close with a free-kick from 25 yards and Afolabi tested Gordon with a fierce low drive. A quick Dundee break ended with Aflabee feeding Paul McGowan, whose shot was blocked.
Danny Mullen came on for Osman Sow and almost had a shot from distance that took a huge deflection, but Gordon responded athletically to keep the ball out. The Dark Blues had their best spell of the match and Mullen didn’t have long to wait for his first league goal of his D career.
Afolabi showed great strength and tenacity to keep possession before shooting. The shot took a defender, and Mullen got down well to slot the ball over Gordon for a great finish.

Hearts responded to D’s fightback by turning themselves into a midfield diamond and settling into the middle of the park. Peter Haring and Andy Halliday replace Andy Irving and Josh Ginnelli. The change has put the game in the hearts, allowing them to watch the game comfortably.
McGowan had a shot saved by Gordon at the end of a good Dorrance run, but was the only threat Dundee posed in the last 20 minutes. The Dees pushed forward, chasing the game, but they neglected the defensive basics and allowed Hearts two late goals that were too easily conceded.
In the 83rd minute, Hearts advanced the ball from the edge of the 18-yard box without any effective challenge, and Roberts cut the ball back for Kingsley to slot a fine shot past Hamilton. Six minutes later Hearts broke through the defence, playing through the Dundee midfield before Walker found Halliday in space to score.
Dundee were hopeless in midfield for most of today’s game, and poor in defence. For most of the match, Hearts’ players won their battles against the Dark Blues, brutally punishing Dundee’s mistakes at the back. Hearts didn’t play spectacular football, but unlike Dundee, they got the basics right. In the first half they were consistently able to find space around the Dundee wing backs, causing problems that the central defenders could not handle.

The Dark Blues’ talented players could never settle on the ball to take control of the game and open their hearts in the first half. When they began to do so after the interval, Hearts regrouped to stave off the danger and win comfortably. For a spell it looked possible that Dundee could salvage something from the game. But the way Hearts recognized that threat and canceled out a Dundee fightback confirmed their superiority on the night.
The Dark Blues made just one change to the team that beat Aberdeen. Max Anderson kept his place after coming on as a substitute for Shaun Byrne, whose injury sidelined him. There was no change of heart from their draw at Ibrox.
The Jam Tarts got off to a flying start and looked dangerous from the start. John Souter’s long tenure was a prominent feature of the early stages. The central defender launched several attacks on the flanks with quick and accurate long passes. The Dark Blues held their shape and concentration well enough to stop Hearts, but could offer little threat in attack.
Preview: Hearts Vs. Dundee United
Cammy Devlin’s pass opened up the Dundee defence, but Benny Bangingheim got the ball between his legs and missed the chance. Barry McKay crossed in a cross from the byline for Ben Woodburn, whose shot went wide for a corner. As the corner flew into the packed goal, Liam Boyce’s header glanced against the crossbar and Craig Halkett’s follow-up header was headed over the bar of the goal line by local favorite Leigh Griffiths.
