The former Italy international opened the scoring two minutes before the break, with Ranko Despotovic adding a second on the stroke of half-time.

Malta international Michael Mifsud pulled one back for Heart, but it was not enough to take the points, especially with Harry Kewell skewing a penalty badly wide.

Also this weekend, Newcastle Jets suffered a 1-0 defeat to Western Sydney FC as Mark Bridges' scored a first-half winner.
