Hearts boss Gary Locke describes his side's 1-0 win over local rivals Hibernian as a "huge" result in their battle for survival.

Hearts manager Gary Locke has described his side's 1-0 win over local rivals Hibernian as a "huge" result.

Calum Paterson scored the decisive goal at the Tynecastle Stadium on Sunday as the hosts clawed back some of their 15-point deduction for going into administration.

When asked what the narrow victory meant, Locke told Sky Sports News: "It was huge. It means we have now closed the gap a bit."

Hearts return to league action on Friday when they travel to Partick Thistle.
