. Though the team was able to win their last league game against Alloa, Hearts failed to repeat the victory on their Betfred Cup clash. Nielson talked about the game saying:

“We should have scored, the amount of chances we had, the positions we got into where we should have scored.”

“That’s the reason we didn’t progress in the cup.”

“We have to go away and we have to work on it and we have to look at the final moment and the concentration in the final moment.”

“It was a disappointing day for us, a very disappointing day.”

Nielson, who received a yellow card after protesting against Alloa penalty, was frustrated with the match events. And Alloa coach, Peter Grant, who was a witness of the events said:  

“Maybe I need to look at myself as I forget these boys are working their socks off at their own job doing all sorts of shifts.”

“When Hearts were getting a rub and a massage some of our boys were out working at three o’clock in the morning.”

“That tells you enough, but the boys showed that desire and got the result.”
