'Hearts are showing something special' - Dodds

Hearts have been shrewd in player recruitment, have strong momentum, and are showing "something special" this season, according to Bill Dodds.

"You can see Hearts, even though they lost goals today, they’ve got that ability and belief to turn that around," BBC Sportsound pundit Dodds said.

"When you’ve got Lawrence Shankland you know you’re capable of anything. Showed great character to step up for the penalty and scored a brilliant winner.

"Dexter Lembikisa – I’m thinking he’s a direct winger then I hear he’s a right-back. I think he could be special for them. In the few games he’s played he’s shown he’ll be able to get them points.

"They’ve bought well, they’ve tweaked it at the right times, they’ve got a bigger squad.

"Hearts are showing something special in terms of endeavour, momentum and belief."
