Heart of Midlothian drew 2-2 with Partick Thistle in the club's first friendly of pre-season.

The game, which was played behind closed doors, allowed the squad to get some minutes under their belt ahead of the training camp in Tenerife. Blair Spittal and James Wilson scored the goals for Steven Naismith's men as they came from 2-0 down.

New signings Daniel Oyegoke, Musa Drammeh, Yan Dhanda, Ryan Fulton and Spittal all got 45 minutes each.

Hearts aim to play between five and seven friendlies ahead of the 2024/25 campaign with three arranged for later this month against Leyton Orient, Tottenham Hotspur and Fleetwood Town.

Naismith won't put a lot of importance on the result of matches, especially those early in pre-season with the focus on the details of how the team performed and the positions the players take up.

"If I’m honest, I'm not caring about the score, I’m more caring about how we do things and the tempo we do things," he told Hearts Standard last month. "How quickly players get into each position. That comes out pretty quickly. We’ve got a game early on for that and we’ll have a good period of a week where we won’t have a game and the days we work will be long days. That will get us a lot of the fundamental stuff that is standard."

Hearts will travel to Tenerife tomorrow for a week-long training camp. Twenty six players will be part of the squad. Zander Clark and Lawrence Shankland will join up with the team on their return next week.
