When Heart of Midlothian take to the field against Dundee on Saturday afternoon they will do so as a European party unfolds in Gorgie.

Third place and group stage football has now been confirmed and fans are planning to celebrate. There will likely be an abundance of beachballs flying about while Gorgie Ultras has planned a special tifo for the fixture.

The supporters' group said on social media: "We have prepared a display for our home game v Dundee.  We ask that everyone in the Gorgie Stand, including hospitality, be in their seats 15 minutes before kick off. We ask that everyone holds or waves whatever material is in their seat. The materials are owned by us and will be collected back at half time. Thank you for the support this season."

The match is an opportunity to celebrate the team's success this season. A campaign that has brought two semi-finals and a third-place finish. But with three games remaining head coach Steven Naismith still wants more.

"When it looks like you’re going to get third and European group stage football you are looking at how to keep the players engaged," he said. 

Hearts have the opportunity to achieve something that has only been done once before in the club's history: Reach the 70-point mark in the top flight. It should be noted that three points for a win was only introduced ahead of the 1994/95 season but since then the club have only managed to get to 70 points in 2005/06 when the team split the Old Firm.

To do so, the team, who face Dundee, St Mirren and Rangers, will have to win two of their final three matches and draw the other.

"We’ve spoken about 70 points and I really think we can get there, which would be a great achievement," Naismith said. "But the element of achieving what you set out in the summer to get and having that done, I found as a player when there is not that pressure you have freedom to play and it’s enjoyable. The consequence of losing doesn’t really affect us. That’s what I’m hoping for these next three games.

"The intensity and pressure are there all season, it’s how you manage it. We have an opportunity where there is nothing riding on it for us other than what do we want to do and achieve as a group?"
