Quote Message: Kilmarnock, while not creating too much, are enjoying the lion's share of possession from Gordon Smith BBC Sportsound pundit
Better, much better! Rory McKenzie shakes this Premiership game from its Sunday dozing on the couch as his howitzer is brilliantly tipped away by Jon McLaughlin.
Kilmarnock have a free kick about 30 yards from goal after Goncalves scythes down Jones. The Hearts player is perhaps fortunate not to receive a yellow card.
Kris Boyd trots up to take the free kick but balloons it high and wide... and probably towards the M8.
Here come the Jambos. Ross Cochrane finds Kyle Lafferty, whose shot is deflected for a corner. However, Craig Levein's men can't profit from the set piece.
Kilmarnock, in their sporadic attacks so far at Murrayfield, look at their most dangerous when Jordan Jones is on the ball or in the periphery. The number 11 shows nimble feet before a dangerous cut-back in the box but there are no takers in blue & white.
Hearts mascot Jock The Jambo is appealing for a goal to light up proceedings at Murrayfield.
We're hearing you Jock, we're hearing you...

Hearts keeper Jon McLaughlin scampers out to gobble up a long ball from Jordan Jones intended for Rory McKenzie as Kilmarnock make their first serious foray into Hearts territory.
Hearts have their tails up here and Don Cowie tries to find Kyle Lafferty in the penalty area but his centre is too high for the beanpole striker.
Hearts come within a whisker of taking the lead as Esmael Goncalves collects a long ball from Liam Smith before seeing his wicked drive tipped onto the post by Jamie MacDonald.
Top work from the keeper!
BBC Sport Scotland at Murrayfield
Despite not playing on Saturday, results elsewhere allowed Hearts to move into the top six. They will be keen to end their Murrayfield experience on a positive note. So far it’s been one win, one draw and one defeat.
Kilmarnock on the other hand are still seeking their first win under Stevie Clarke and despite the loss in midweek against Hibernian, they performed really well and were unlucky to lose so heavily.
Hearts come roaring out of the traps and Esmael Goncalves thunders through a couple of KIlmarnock challenges before feeding the ball out wide but the hosts can't get a decent delivery into the box.
We're under way!
There is a minute's silence ahead of kick off, in tribute to former midfielder Stefano Salvatori, who has died at the age of 49.

The players make their way down the tunnel and out onto the lush Murrayfield surface. High fives and handshakes all round as both sets of supporters give the sides a thunderous reception.
Slaven Bilic is still in post at West Ham United, but the Croat's future is to be decided in the next 48 hours and David Moyes has already emerged as a possible successor with the Premier League strugglers.
In the aftermath of West Ham's 4-1 loss at home to Liverpool, the 54-year-old Scot has admitted his interest in the role.
Moyes had been among the bookmakers' favourites for the Rangers manager's job, but it is becoming increasingly likely that Aberdeen's Derek McInnes is on his way to Ibrox.
A move to West Ham would also end speculation linking the former Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland manager with a return to Everton, or to Scotland to succeed Gordon Strachan.
Hearts midfielder Don Cowie says his side are "desperate" to get back to Tynecastle.
"Playing surface wise it [Murrayfield] has been excellent, but it's not Tynecastle," said Cowie.
"We're desperate to get back to Tynecastle, you look at the stadium and the way it's shaping up.
"Everyone knows it's a great venue anyway, and we can't wait.
"If we can get a win, it sets us up really well for the rest of the season.
"It's quite a distance from the touchline to the stand, whereas Tynecastle is right on top of you.
"It's a great arena, but it's not our home."
Despite Tuesday's 3-0 defeat at home by Hibs, Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke sticks with the same starting line-up.
It means winger Chris Burke and forward Rory McKenzie have recovered from knocks picked up during that defeat.
