Hearts boss Gary Locke praises his side's character as they record back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

Hearts manager Gary Locke has praised his side's character following their 2-1 victory over St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership.

The Jambos boss said that his team's second win on the spin has lifted everyone at the club following a troubled first half of the season.

"I thought the character was there in abundance again, we've shown it all season," Sky Sports News quotes him as saying. "We've had a lot of lows but this week has been great for us.

"I think you can see that it gives everyone a lift, not just myself and the backroom team but the players and the supporters.

"It has been a very difficult season for us but I have been over the moon with the way the players have performed."

Hearts remain rooted to the foot of the table having started the season with a negative points tally due to their financial issues.
