Hearts ace Stewart not seeking Hibs revenge

Hearts midfielder Michael Stewart insists revenge isn't on his mind ahead of today's derby against Hibs.

The Jambos lost the first Edinburgh derby of the season on the opening day of the campaign as they went down 1-0 to their rivals at Tynecastle.

But Stewart told the Edinburgh Evening News: "I wouldn't want to think we were looking for revenge I think it can be dangerous if you look upon it like that.

"This is a totally different game, there's nothing we can do about the last one as much as it was a bitter pill to swallow at the time. We need to learn from mistakes that were made in that game and throughout the season so far. We hope to eradicate them one by one.

"Wednesday night's CIS Cup win over Celtic has given the lads the belief that we can do things right and we can get good results. Ultimately, when you pick up a couple of bad results, it's going to affect confidence.

"The flip side of that is when you pick up a good victory like Wednesday night it gives everyone a real boost. We shouldn't get too down with defeats but we don't want to get too carried away after winning either. You take the positives out of it and analyse what you've done right and take confidence from that."
