Hearts defender Danny Grainger has vowed that the team’s close-knit squad will see them through a tough patch.
The Tynecastle men are without a win since the first weekend of the season and have slumped to defeat against Dundee and St Mirren in the past two SPL matches.
John McGlynn’s side travel to Dundee United on Saturday in a week when the club confirmed that some top team players will be paid late this month, but left back Grainger says the team will still travel to Tayside with confidence.
Speaking to Hearts TV, the ex-Arabs player said: "We've got a close-knit squad and dressing room.
"As long as we pull together and stick together in the dressing room, the results will come.
"We know [Dundee United] is going to be a hard game. We know they will throw everything at us to try to get the win.
"They are missing key players at the moment. We've got to go there full of confidence and try to get a result.
"We haven't got the results we've deserved in the last few weeks."
