Hearts vs Stenhousemuir Match Preview
Hearts know this is a must-win game if they are to reach the knockout stage of the Scottish League Cup – and it is unthinkable that they will fail to get the job done against a team three divisions below them.
The Jam Tarts are playing catch-up in Group A on leaders Dundee United and will go into this match with two games in hand and five points adrift if, as expected, the Terrors win at home to East Fife on Tuesday (result not known at the time of writing).
The likelihood is that, having drawn 1-1 with each other, both of the top two will win all their remaining games and it will come down to goal difference as to which of them qualifies automatically for the last 16 while the other hopes to be among the four best of the eight group runners-up.
In the second-place rankings before the midweek fixtures, Hearts were just outside the all-important top four and so they will hope to improve their goal difference with an emphatic victory against Stenhousemuir.
That may not be easy, however, because Stenny performed creditably when pushing Dundee United all the way before losing their opening match 2-1 and they were right in the game until conceding the second goal in the 86th minute of their 2-0 loss at East Fife.
Similarly, Hearts put only two goals past another League Two side, Cowdenbeath, and so this may come more under the heading of a routine success for Craig Levein’s team rather than being particularly decisive.
