Andrew Driver breaks his goalless streak for Hearts against St Johnstone

Hearts winger Andrew Driver broke a 19 game run without a goal to put his team 2-1 ahead at McDiarmid Park.

Driver had last netted in the August 12 Edinburgh derby against Hibernian before his Perth strike.

The 25-year-old is enjoying a new lease of life since John McGlynn introduced a 4-4-2 system to the team and he says the formation suits his direct style of play.

Driver said: "As a wide man it gives you more options up the park and I like having the security that, if you're under pressure, then you can knock the ball into the channels.

"I like playing in it, and hopefully if we keep the results going then we can keep playing that system.

"It was a pretty end to end game. Their attackers gave our defence a torrid time, but I think on the whole the 2-2 draw was a fair result."
