Hearts 1-0 Dundee 8/4/17

By UWTB1893, 11/04/17

Hearts ended a run of three straight defeats as Dundee's relegation fears deepened with a sixth straight loss.

Isma Goncalves raced onto Don Cowie's pass and fired home from a tight angle via a deflection off Darren O'Dea.

The hosts might have been further ahead by half-time but Arnaud Djoum's header was superbly saved by Scott Bain.

Dundee offered little but Jack Hamilton was forced to tip Tom Hateley's free-kick onto a post and Craig Wighton dragged a golden chance wide.

But it was far too little from Paul Hartley's side, who remain in ninth place, only a point above the relegation play-off spot.

      Since joining on an initial loan until the end of January, Leitch-Smith has netted five times so far for the Dee.

      "There's has been discussions taking place between the two clubs and A-Jay's representatives about potentially extending his loan to the end of the season," said Shrewsbury chief executive Brian Caldwell
      "From A-Jay's point of view, we can see why it would be beneficial to him as he has started the last four games for Dundee and managed a goal and an assist in his last game before the winter break.
      "Dundee seem keen to keep him so it's in the interest of all three parties to get this resolved."
