Match ends, Heart of Midlothian 3, Alloa Athletic 0.
Scottish Championship winners Hearts recorded a comfortable win over relegation-threatened Alloa Athletic.
Callum Paterson broke the deadlock with a long-range effort just before the break.
Captain Danny Wilson headed in James Keatings' cross for Hearts' second early in the second period.
Iain Flannigan's shot for Alloa whistled narrowly wide before home striker Soufian El Hassnaoui struck from 20 yards.
Alloa's Mark Docherty was sent off late on for a second bookable offence.
Having suffered only their second league defeat of the season against Rangers at Ibrox on Sunday, Premiership-bound Hearts move on to 84 points for the season with four games left.
Second-bottom Alloa are now just three points ahead of Livingston, having played a game more.
