Hearts boss John McGlynn reckons he knows just how much victory over Edinburgh rivals Hibernian means to Jambos fans.
McGlynn takes charge of his first derby as the permanent Hearts manager on Sunday but he has been involved in several in the past in differing roles.
The 50-year-old was appointed manager at Tynecastle in June following a successful spell in charge of Raith but had previously spent a decade at Hearts as a coach and acted as caretaker manager on two occasions.
Hearts are unbeaten in their last 11 meetings with Hibs, including last season's 5-1 Scottish Cup final success, and McGlynn told Hearts TV he learnt in that time just how important the derby fixture is to the fans of the club.
"I've had many of them (Edinburgh derbies) as youth team coach, reserve coach and caretaker," he said.
"I'm no stranger to them and as far as I can remember I have a reasonably good record in most of them.I understand what it means to the fans and we will certainly try to keep our unbeaten run going."
McGlynn also suggested both sets of players could be feeling the weight of expectation at Easter Road on Sunday, but backed his side to get a positive result.
He said: "Does it put more pressure on Hibs that we have been winning them most of the time or more pressure on us to keep winning them?
"We are full of confidence so we have to make sure we are not complacent in any way, shape or form and that we go down there and are very professional and very determined and that is the way we intend the team to go out and play."
