Hearts boss Jefferies upbeat despite Aberdeen stalemate

Hearts boss Jim Jefferies had no complaints after their 0-0 draw with Aberdeen.

A win would have seen the Jambos leapfrog Rangers, who face St Johnstone on Sunday, but instead the result means they are a point behind the Ibrox side who have three games in hand.

Jefferies, whose side have won nine of their 13 league games away from home this term, said: "When I shook hands with Craig Brown at the end we said it was a fair result.

"They were the better side in the first half but, after a few choice words at half-time, we were better in the second half.

"Our record is fantastic away from home and you can't win every game.

"There was always going to be somewhere that we would get a draw and we would probably accepted that given the amount of players we had out.

"We were playing a side that are very well organised and contesting for the top six again.

"This was always going to be a difficult game and the surface made it even harder.

"At the end of the day we have come away with a point and we are happy with that as it was a fair result."
