Hearts claimed their first away win since February with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Dunfermline at East End Park.
Andy Webster headed home a first-half opener and Rudi Skacel doubled the visitors' advantage with 15 minutes remaining.
Their second successive league victory lifts Hearts to fourth place in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.
The first opportunity for the visitors came after 11 minutes when David Templeton weaved into the Dunfermline box and got a strong shot away only for Paul Gallagher to deflect the ball round the post for a corner.
Hearts' Ian Black limped off after 21 minutes and was replaced by former Kilmarnock midfielder Mehdi Taouil.
A superb diving stop from Gallacher denied Skacel with five minutes remaining in the first half and the visitors grabbed the opener from the resulting corner. Danny Grainger's delivery was not dealt with by the home defence and Webster was able to head home from close range.
Ryan Stevenson passed up a gilt-edged chance just before the hour-mark when he met Templeton's cross but could only head into the arms of Gallagher.
John Potter forced Marian Kello into his first save of the match after 69 minutes when his dangerous cross almost caught the Czech stopper out at his far post.
The home side suddenly seemed to be building momentum and full-back Paddy Boyle unleashed a sensational strike from 25 yards out which went inches over the bar.
Their hopes of a comeback were dashed with 15 minutes remaining however as Hearts grabbed the vital second goal. Boyle's misplaced pass was intercepted by Templeton who drove through on goal and unleashed a stinging effort which was well saved by Gallagher, unfortunately for the keeper though Skacel was on hand to drill the rebound home.
