Hearts   0 - 0   Dundee Utd

Andy Webster holds off Hearts' Jamie Mole
Dundee United and Hearts battered each other without denting the scoreboard

By Clive Lindsay

Dundee United lost ground at the top of the Scottish Premier League as Danny Cadamarteri's missed penalty proved costly in a draw with Hearts.

Flashing drives from Craig Conway and Scott Robertson went close to giving United the lead and the latter was denied by a fine Marian Kello save.

A Jon Daly header struck the outside of the post before United won a penalty.

Eggert Jonsson pulled down Cadamarteri, but the substitute's spot kick was too close to Kello, who parried clear.

United had the better of the chances but missed the composure of suspended pair Morgaro Gomis and Prince Buaben in midfield.

And the failure to take their chances means they slip six points behind leaders Celtic, although the Tannadice outfit have a game in hand to come against second-top Rangers on Tuesday.

For Hearts, it was case of a point gained considering Csaba Laszlo was forced to field a much-changed side from the one that lost away to Hamilton last weekend in a match in which four of the Edinburgh side's players were sent off.

Laszlo handed 17-year-old Scott Robinson, who became the youngest player to feature in the SPL when he made a substitute appearance two seasons ago, his full debut while there was also a rare start for strike partner Jamie Mole.

Kello replaced the injured Janos Balogh in goal and Lee Wallace and David Obua were also restored to the starting line-up.

Ismael Bouzid, Ian Black and Suso Santana all missed out through suspension, but captain Michael Stewart took his place in the middle of the field after winning an appeal against his dismissal.

Both sides started in determined mood, but it took 15 minutes before either goal was seriously threatened, Craig Conway sending a low drive a couple of feet wide of Hearts' nearside post from the edge of the box.

The home side responded immediately and, from the first corner of the match, Ruben Palazuelos stooped low but sent his flashing header a few yards wide from eight yards.

United were shooting on sight of goal and a Robertson snap-shot went just wide.

Hearts suffered a blow after half an hour when David Obua limped off and the Uganda midfielder's place wide on the right was taken by youth Lithuanian Arvydas Novikovas.

Robertson was proving a handful for the Hearts defence and forced a fine double save from Kello.

The Slovakian parried the midfielder's drive from the edge of the box and recovered to punch the ball clear before being clattered by striker Daly.

United went closer still on the stroke of half-time when Conway flighted a free-kick to the front post and, although Daly connected a head of Kello, the Irishman's powerful, close-range header struck the outside of the post.

The game found an extra gear after the break and the injection of United substitute Cadamarteri's pace won a penalty on the hour.

Jonsson bundled into the back of the forward as he raced into the box, but Cadamarteri's spot kick was too close to Kello an Robertson fired the rebound into the side-netting.

The two sides battered one another into submission in the closing stages, but neither could make a dent on the scoreboard, with a late drive from Hearts substitute Gary Glen slipping a foot wide.


Hearts manager Csaba Laszlo:
"We must not be negative about losing points as Dundee United are a good team and the game was very entertaining.

"I might be unhappy that we did not have the three points, but I am not unhappy with the performance.

"It was good to give Scott Robinson a chance to show that we have some good, talented young players.

"I will not comment about the performance of the referee, but I thought we had the possibility of a penalty, but it was not given."

Dundee United manager Craig Levein:
"I felt we had the best chances in the match. I don't think we played particularly well, but we certainly did well enough to win the game.

"Nicky Weaver said afterwards that he did not make a save in the 90 minutes.

"I thought the game will do Jon Daly the world of good. He was fit enough to start and I thought he did well and caused the Hearts defence problems.

"It was a great chance for us to keep in touch with the teams above us, but a lot of teams will come here and struggle. Hearts have good players and will get better."
