Thanks for your company today. Join us later to find out if Scotland can overcome almighty odds - and favourites Australia - to reach the Rugby World Cup semi-finals. It looks like the winners are going to face Argentina, unless Ireland can stage a late fightback.
- Mixu Paatelainen's first game in charge of Dundee Utd
- Juanma gives Hearts the win with a penalty
- Tannadice side bottom of Scottish Premiership
- Hearts move into third above Ross County
Meanwhile, it doesn't get any easier for Mixu Paatelainen and Dundee United, who next travel to face Premiership leaders and reigning champions Celtic next Sunday.
"Disappointing to lose a couple of boys from injury.
"We had a few guys involved in internationals and we hoped to bring them off, but because of the injuries we couldn't.
"It was a bit scrappy, maybe the boys felt a bit of pressure and against a team who have a new manager it was always going to be difficult.
"Maybe we can play Ross County next week and have a bit more confidence.
"It takes us to within four points of Aberdeen and that gives us something to aim for."
"When you look at how much our players gave to that match. Their attitude was excellent.
"What surprised me was the quality on the pitch, but Hearts are big strong guys and defended well.
"We were not nearly good enough in the final third and we have not had time to work on that.
"I concentrated on being tight at the back.
"Hearts got their lead and defended it well."
Max Baggins-Craig: "What a brill game. Thoroughly deserved for Hearts. Dundee United equally deserved a point at least. Am sure they'll pick up though."
"There were a lot of Hearts guys out on their feet. This is the team that trains three times a day and a lot has been made of that. I don't know if that has anything to do with that, but I've seen that a few times this season."
"Mixu has a lot of work on his hands and this day emphasises that."
That's Hearts' first league win since 22 August. Meanwhile, United have now gone nine games without a victory and they remain four points adrift of Partick Thistle at the bottom of the table.
Hearts move back above Ross County and into third place in the Premiership. They are now only four points adrift of second-top Aberdeen.
Hearts goalkeeper Neil Alexander's goal kick signals the end to the game as Mixu Paatelainen suffers defeat in his first game as Dundee United manager.
It is Aaron Kuhl's turn this time to try his luck and his curling free-kick is a couple of feet over the crossbar.
Maybe not. Another United free-kick a couple of yards outside the penalty box. Needless shoulder charge by Blazej Augustyn on Ryan McGowan.
That looks to be United's last chance to rescue a point.
United have a free-kick just outside the penalty box for a jersey pulling by the ailing Jordan McGhee, but Aidan Connolly's curling free-kick is straight at goalkeeper Neil Alexander.
Blair Spittal's day goes from bad to worse as he is sent off for tripping Sam Nicholson as the midfielder attempted to break out of defence. The United midfielder, of course, was the man who conceded the penalty.
The struggling Jordan McGhee heads clear for Hearts and goes down like a skittle inside his own penalty box.
United have six minutes of stoppage time in which to fashion an equaliser they haven't threatened so far!
Yet another booking for United as Blair Spittal fells Osman Sow. That's not what the home side want to be doing at this stage.
Hearts striker Osman Sow is now receiving treatment for cramp. Hearts are falling like flies. Surely United need to take advantage and there will be minutes to add on by the referee.
Hearts full-back Jordan McGhee is toiling at the moment. It seems he has picked up an injury, but head coach Robbie Neilson has used all three substitutes. Sam Nicholson is also struggling in midfield. Can United exploit the situation in the final minutes?
"Hearts on a poor run, it has been a poor second half, but Robbie Neilson will not care a jot if it ends up this way."
"It has been pretty scrappy, stop-start, stop-start and very niggly in the second half."
Hearts striker Juanma makes a bid for the Oscars as he goes down clutching his throat under a challenge from Aaron Kuhl and he rolls about on the turf as play rages on.
Another moment of madness for United goalkeeper Luis Zwick as he comes out to a corner but misses the ball completely. Fortunately for the German, the ball goes wide of the back post.
United midfielder Jon Rankin is booked for a late tackle on Juanma as the game becomes increasingly towsy.
United goalkeeper Luis Zwick gives manager Mixu Paatelainen and the home fans kittens as he delays a clearance and he is fortunate that the ricochet off Osman Sow spins for a goal-kick.
United get a rare shot on target, but Billy Mckay's shot on the turn from the edge of the penalty box is straight at goalkeeper Neil Alexander.
Hearts make two changes, with Morgaro Gomis and Liam Smith coming on for the injured duo.
Miguel Pallardo has limped back on to the pitch, but his side are still a man down as the midfielder collapses again on the turf. The United fans are raging at the delay.
Hearts full-back Juwon Oshaniwa looks likely to be replaced, with the Nigeria international receiving treatment along with team-mate Miguel Pallardo.
So close to a second goal for Hearts as Juanma's shot is blocked by Luis Zwick after a fine run by Osman Sow and the goalkeeper manages to save at the feet of Sam Nicholson as the midfielder looked poised to pounce on the rebound.
Hearts goalkeeper Neil Alexander has to flap clear at the back post as he rises to meet a cross to the back post as United start to exert some pressure.
United are on a four-game unbeaten run against Hearts, although they have not faced one another since March 2014 because of the Edinburgh side's season in the Championship.
Hearts' last victory at Tannadice came in September 2012, since when they have drawn once and lost twice at United's ground.
Former Hearts defender Ryan McGowan is booked for a blatant block on striker Osman Sow. Juanma is unable to get a header on target following the free-kick.
United kick off with new manager Mixu Paatelainen having made a change at half-time with Adam Taggart, who is on loan from Fulham, replacing the ineffectual Darko Bodul up front.
"I remember when we had a very good Hearts team and we were near the bottom and wondered how. It is going to be difficult for United. There's a lot of young players and it is going to be difficult to get themselves out of the position they are in."
