Aberdeen goalkeeper Jamie Langfield is delighted the club are finally starting to turn around their miserable SPL season.
For lengthy periods The Dons were below rock-bottom side Hamilton at the foot of the table in Scotland's top flight.
They have now kept back-to-back clean sheets and Langfield is pleased the side are now 15 points clear of the struggling Accies.
Aberdeen tackle Hearts at Pittodrie this weekend and Langfield sees no reason why they cannot maintain their winning run.
"When you look at the table it's a lot better than it was a few months ago when we were actually behind Hamilton," he told the club's official website.
"To be in touching distance of the teams above us now means we are thoroughly enjoying life and are looking forward to the Hearts game with confidence.
"We have got the bit between our teeth now. We let ourselves down badly last week against Motherwell but winning both games since then has been vital. We knew we had to build on the Kilmarnock result from Saturday against Accies in a game that was all about getting the points. We did that and posted a clean sheet.
"Hearts will make it more open than Hamilton, there will be a lot more space for the boys to play. You will see Rob, Derek and Paul getting on the ball a lot more and hopefully getting it out to Sone and Jacko and really building and going forward.
"We are looking forward to the game. We are going into it confident and can't wait for Hearts to come here. It will be a very difficult game though as Hearts are in great form at the moment."
