Beniusis fighting for Hearts stay

Ricardas Beniusis admits he's running out of time to prove his worth at Hearts.

The striker's loan from FBK Kaunas runs out in January and he told the Edinburgh Evening News: "This is the first time in my life that I haven't played regularly. I understand the Hearts management, that maybe it was not what they expected from me. Maybe this was not my style at first but now I'm trying to play the way the management want.

"These last two months have been difficult. I have had to change my style, change my mindset on how to play. At first it was very difficult because it was a strange style of football for me. All the time there are long balls, not on the ground. Crosses are coming in all the time and that is strange for me, but now I understand better. I am at a much higher level, not like in Lithuania. I'm trying but it's difficult."

He added: "I want to grow in every way in Scotland. That's what I'm trying to. Being here is helping me grow as a player. I'm getting something new every day, we play a lot of styles and you learn new experiences."
