    Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    Kyle Lafferty takes a tumble in the box, looking for a penalty, following a long ball from Connor Randall but referee Kevin Clancy is having none of it.

    "I don't think it was a penalty," booms BBC Sportsound pundit Gordon Smith.

    Kris Boyd trots off to be replaced by Lee Erwin.


    Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    Is this a Hearts equaliser? No! John Souttar plays his corner to the edge of the box and Isma Goncalves' shot goes through a ruck of players before being held by Jamie MacDonald.

    Reminiscent of Celtic's set-piece success at St Johnstone yesterday, without the goal.


    Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    Kris Boyd has the ball in the net again, but the striker is flagged offside after collecting Chris Burke's ball and rifling home.

  4. Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    Murrayfield erupts as Hearts fans roar for a free kick - not given - as Lewis Moore looked to be obstructed in midfield. The Jambos need a spark from somewhere.


    Hearts striker Kyle Lafferty is booked for simulation by eagle-eyed whistler Kevin Clancy. It's been a wretched day for those of a maroon hue.

  6. Blunt Hearts

    Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    "You just feel that Hearts need a goal. A goal would lift them," says BBC Scotland commentator Rob Maclean. "They need a goal attempt first," quips Sportsound buddy Allan Preston.


    Kilmarnock keeper Jamie MacDonald rushes out to gather as Isma Goncalves is about to let fly!

  8. Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    Kilmarnock are on the front foot at the start of the second half as a corner breaks to Greg Taylor after Rory McKenzie fluffs his lines but Taylor drags his shot wide.


    We're back in business at Murrayfield...

  10. Scouting 'nonsense'

    HT: Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    Allan Preston

    BBC Scotland summariser

    Quote Message: Aberdeen have the best scout in Scottish football and he is based in England. Why, when you have Craig Levein, Jon Daly and Austin MacPhee, do Hearts need their scout based in Scotland watching Edinburgh City, Alloa, Cowdenbeath and East Fife? It is an absolute nonsense. Get them down to England where there are 92 full-time clubs and lots of players

  12. Hearts 'brutal'

    HT: Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    Allan Preston

    BBC Scotland summariser

    Quote Message: Brutal, absolutely brutal for Hearts and they were rightly booed off. They lack pace, they lack width, they lack penetration and it's simply not good enough. This is going to be a tough season for them. If they make the top six, I will be surprised. It is a club in transition and they need a clear-out and an influx of new players
  13. Levein 'has a big job on his hands'

    Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    Allan Preston

    BBC Scotland summariser

    Quote Message: After the initial 10 minutes, Hearts have been really poor. Craig Levein has got a big job on his hands here. How can he get more out of these players? They are not responding at the moment.
  14. HALF-TIME Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    Boos ring round Murrayfield as the Hearts supporters let their charges know what they think of that first-half display. Kris Boyd's strike separate the two sides as Kilmarnock look for a first win of the Steve Clarke reign.

  15. Hearts huffing & puffing

    Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    The hosts are finding it hard to put any kind of pressure on Kilmarnock and their set pieces have been really poor. Food for thought at the break; Killie, though, are bubbling away nicely.

  16. Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    Craig Levein won't be a happy camper at the break on the evidence of this opening half; Kilmarnock look the likelier to add to their lead than Hearts are to find an equaliser.

  17. Hearts continue to stutter...

    Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    The hosts have an opportunity to send a ball into the box but John Souttar sends it straight out of play!

    Still clearly frustrated, Souttar clatters into Jordan Jones and receives a booking for his troubles.

  18. Boyd 'so composed'

    Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    Gordon Smith

    BBC Sportsound analyst

    Quote Message: That is what Kris Boyd does - he finishes well. He was so composed, he took his first touch on his chest, dragged it onto his left foot away from the covering defenders, and fired it in. Killie have been getting stronger and stronger and have been controlling the match.

  19. GOAL Hearts 0-1 Kilmarnock

    Kris Boyd

    We have a goal! And it's for the visitors who have been growing in confidence as the first half has progressed. Veteran hitman Kris Boyd controls a long ball through the middle and he fires home despite McLaughlin's best efforts. Are Hearts' Murrayfield woes to continue?

  20. War of attrition

    Hearts 0-0 Kilmarnock

    Our thoughts are with the match ball at this difficult time. With this sleepy encounter goalless as we approach the half-hour mark at Murrayfield, we're crying out for a goal.
