Hearts plead for more fan support to stay afloat

Heart of Midlothian director Sergejus Fedotovas has called for the clubs fans to come out in their droves for the remaining home matches this season.

The Edinburgh outfit are attempting to raise around £1.80million in funds to ease their financial concerns with £450,000 of that to be paid to Her Majesty's Custom and Revenues as a winding-up order over a tax bill.

So far, hearts supporters have responded well to the share issue scheme implemented by Fedotovas has called for further action for the remainder of the campaign in order to keep the Jambos alive.

"For the remaining 10 home league fixtures this season, if we were to achieve attendances of over 16,000 at Tynecastle then this would inject a much-needed £800,000 into the club and ensure our survival through until the end of the season," he told the club's official website.

"If we achieve a good run of sales in both the share issue and tickets in December it gives us a hope of improving our squad in January.

"It is in our power to do this and we hope that fans will continue to rally to the cause."

He added: "If we were to break through the £1million level for share sales it would be a significant step towards stabilising the club., We can only do this with everyone's help and that particularly includes the Edinburgh business community."
