Webster eyes second place
Scottish Premier League,
Hearts captain Andy Webster is confident his side can turn around their poor start to the season and finish second in the SPL.
John McGlynn's young squad have won just two of their opening ten league matches so far this term and currently sit 10th in the Scottish Premier League, just five points above bottom club Dundee.
"One concern is we're a bit inconsistent. On one hand, we've done exceptionally well and on the other hand we have done exceptionally poorly. In any team you need a level of consistency and to know roughly what you are getting. At the minute, we have not really got that," Webster told the Daily Record.
"We can all see the potential the young players have and you do need to show a level of patience with them because it is extremely difficult and they need to find their feet and learn quickly because you want to win football matches almost in the same breath."
He added: "The way the club is going at the moment is down the youth route and promoting younger boys. Some are ready for it and some aren't. It's a difficult situation.
"However, I believe second place is realistic for us. We need to find a level where we can be winning football matches even if we're not playing well."
