It wasn’t the kind of outright victory Hearts was looking for after an endless and encouraging preseason

Nonetheless, Jamie Walker’s second-half penalty, which may have been awarded rather casually for handball by Cameron Harper, saw the hosts claim all three points in Betfred Cup Group A at the expense of Inverness

They had goalkeeper Craig Gordon to thank early in the game for pulling off an astonishing block to deny Daniel Mackay, while Caley substitute Nikolay Todorov lacked composure when he hit a wide volley from an excellent late position

“I really enjoyed the game,” said Hearts manager Robbie Neilson. « There were times when I thought we played really well and times when we were a bit loose but it’s understandable when you haven’t played for so long. »

Much has changed in the 209 days that have passed since Hearts’ fateful loss to Mirren in their last outing

No matter what the world looks like, now is the ‘new normal’ at club Gorgie

A new canoe in place and new players, so many that there were only two survivors of the team that started against the Buddies, Craig Halkett and Steven Naismith

Outrage over their forced relegation from the Limit has softened, though their desire to return to the Premiership on the first attempt is palpable

The start of the league is yet to come, Dundee visitors a week Friday

It was the Betfred Cup at Tynecastle last night against Inverness, a team which finished second in last season’s truncated second tier

Crowd noise from Hearts boss Robbie Neilson’s quest was played through the PA system during this match

It might have been a problem for those compiling the audio if the audio had been taken from last season’s home games at Tynecastle, as players were used to the taunts that rained down from the stands in the middle of a campaign. wretched

The noise might not have been in sync with what was happening on the pitch, but Hearts went through the gears seamlessly at first

Barely two minutes had passed when Preston’s loan winger Josh Ginnelly passed Cameron Harper to set up two back-to-back attempts at goal, though Craig Wighton and Steven Naismith were turned down by Mark Ridgers

Some 18 years to the day after making his debut on his first stint at Hearts, the former Celtic goalkeeper dove to his left to brilliantly deny a point-blank bouncing header from Mackay, who was in relation to the center by Shane Sutherland

Gordon also had to surrender on Scott Allardice’s free kick, while Ginnelly made a save at Ridgers before teammate Craig Halkett made his way to

All in all, everything good about Hearts came from Ginnelly on the right flank.

What would not have pleased Inverness manager John Robertson was the fact that his players seemed to adhere to the two-meter distance rule when they were near him

Hearts picked up the pace in the second half as they continued their search for the decisive goal

Jamie Brandon had a close-range workout saved by Ridgers before Olly Lee and Mihai Popescu both got close

The goal finally came in the 62nd minute when Walker scored a penalty

The incident leading to the kick was hard on the visitors, Harper was unable to escape Halkett’s shot

« Under the new regulations – and we were all on the Zoom call, it’s not a penalty

“As far as the game goes, I thought our young guys were wonderful and worked really hard and created chances and Craig Gordon made a fabulous save

However, Hearts didn’t care and, in the game’s balance, the hosts probably deserved it.

Neilson turned to his bench to cool off after the goal, making his debut for Jordan Roberts, Andy Halliday and Stephen Kingsley, who had signed just hours before kick-off

Todorov ensured those who wore a brown jersey for the first time marked their debut with a victory when he hit his aforementioned effort in the 84th minute
