John McGlynn: Hearts boss looking forward to derby triumph over Hibernian
Hearts manager John McGlynn is determined to win the Edinburgh derby against Hibernian this weekend.
The 50-year-old was appointed Hearts boss in June and will lead his side into his first derby as a manager on Sunday.
Ahead of the clash, McGlynn says that he is confident that his players will deliver and take maximum points from this Scottish Premier League fixture.
"I've had many of them (Edinburgh derbies) as youth team coach, reserve coach and caretaker," he said.
"I'm no stranger to them and as far as I can remember I have a reasonably good record in most of them. I understand what it means to the fans and we will certainly try to keep our unbeaten run going.
"Does it put more pressure on Hibs that we have been winning them most of the time or more pressure on us to keep winning them?
"We are full of confidence so we have to make sure we are not complacent in any way, shape or form and that we go down there and are very professional and very determined and that is the way we intend the team to go out and play."
Hearts began the new league season with a 2-0 victory over St Johnstone, while Hibernian lost 3-0 at Dundee United.
