Last time out at Tynecastle the points were secured with a sensational 60-yard welly.But with no big Humph this time Hearts were grateful for some classic Josh Ginnelly.

The red hot forward returned from suspension and took his season tally to eight with a double to see off St Johnstone. And while Stephen Humphrys’ wonder goal was still talk of the toon before kick off it was Ginnelly who was the toast of Tynecastle come full-time.The former Preston forward is in the form of his life dovetailing brilliantly with Lawrence Shankland and left the park to a standing ovation when Garang Kuol took his place with 12 minutes to go.

How the Jambos faithful must be hoping to see a new contract heading his way with his deal due up in the summer. Hearts were ultimately comfortable with Jorge Grant adding a third thanks to a Barrie McKay assist as they teed themselves up for a massive double header with Celtic.Delighted boss Robbie Neilson hailed Ginnelly’s impact and has now challenged his side to go to Celtic Park on Wednesday and win before welcoming the Hoops to Tynecastle in the Scottish Cup quarter final next weekend.

He said: “The win was really important. We go to Parkhead and then they come here, it is always difficult.“We need to go there and try and win the game.
