Comments from the camp

Speaking to press on Thursday, Derek McInnes said: “Coming out of the break we want to make sure that we can get back to winning ways. Hearts are a strong team; their agenda is to finish in Europe and they’ve got a fight on their hands for that. We’re trying to stay in the league and that’s our fight, but it’s a fight we’re determined to win, and one I believe the players are right up for.”
