Hearts' McGowan: Tottenham no.2 Jordan would have been impressed by Motherwell loss

Heart of Midlothian defender Ryan McGowan believes Tottenham assistant Joe Jordan would have been impressed by the Edinburgh clubs performance on the weekend.

The Jambos are due to take on Spurs in a two-legged Europa League play-off, beginning August 18, and McGowan feels that Jordan would have left Scotland knowing the North Londoners would be in a for a challenge despite his side losing 1-0 to Motherwell at Fir Park.

"We played well enough to get something out of the game," the 21-year old Australian said.

"So I think he would have seen that we like to try to get it down and pass it and play it out from the back.

"He would have seen that we all work hard and hopefully he will have headed down the road with a few thoughts about the game in a couple of weeks.

"Everyone is looking forward to it. It was always going to be hard game whoever we got, with us not being seeded.

"But it is a great chance for us to test ourselves against one of the best teams in England who did very well in the Champions League last season.

"Tynecastle was sold out in a couple of hours so everyone is looking forward to it."
