'Hearts desperately need new right-back'

We asked for your thoughts after Hearts' 1-1 draw against Kilmarnock.

Here's a taste of what you had to say:

Gez: This time last year it was a game where we would've folded, and the same in plenty of seasons before that. We didn't today though. We gutted it out. We got a point.

Euan: Flat performance yet again. Again, question marks about Steven Naismith leading this club going forward. That's six games at home this season against Hibs, Kilmarnock, Motherwell and Ross County and zero wins. Not good enough. Not enough leaders on the pitch and when Lawrence Shankland doesn't perform the team look a bottom six team.

Kuptin: Kilmarnock looked good and a draw was a fair result. Hearts improved a lot when the subs came on. Great goal from Marley Watkins to be fair.

Alan: Four points from our remaining two fixtures before the break and we've all but got third spot tied up and a semi-final to look forward to as well. I wasn't pro-Naismith getting the gig, but didn't want him sacked when things weren't so good either - now I'd love to see him getting the contract extension he deserves. Great call by the board.

Steve: Dexter Lembikisa and Alex Cochrane are very poor full-backs - not good enough. Jorge Grant is also a pedestrian. We desperately need a right-back and Stephen Kingsley back at left-back. Great to see Barrie McKay back. The current midfield just don’t knit well together and Shankland needs support up front. Looking at today's line-up, never expected a win.

Chris: Looked good for 35 minutes then Killie always looked likely and couldn’t have complained if they had left with the win. Subs were badly needed to stop the inevitable goal they got, Naismith left it far too late as Macauley Tait was done by half-time. Rare off day for Shankland, was poor.

Jim: Played well against a good Kilmarnock team but once again the right-back position cost us we desperately - need a right-back. Surely we have one playing in the B team - we have struggled since Mikey Smith.
