A goal ten minutes from time denied Liam Fox his first win in charge of the side in Saturday's opening pre season game at Central Park.
It was almost a entire new team which took to the field with only Craig Sives, Dean Brett and Craig Johnston from last season's side in the starting line up with Jamie Sneddon also on the bench.
The head coach also fielded two trialists from the start and a further four were introduced in the second half.
Kris Renton, who had just signed 24 hours previously, opened the scoring with 24 minutes gone when Shaun Rutherford went on a run down the left wing and sent a low cross over for the big striker to blast the ball into the roof of the net from seven yards.
Hearts, fielded most of their first team squad who hadn't been involved in Thursday's Europa League tie, leveled the score in 80 minutes when Dario Zanatta was brought down by Fraser Mullen and from the resultant penalty he sent McGurn the wrong way.
TEAM: McGurn, Mullen, Rutherford, Sives, Trialist, Trialist (Trialist 67), Brett (Trialist 75), O'Brien (Robertson 60), Renton (Trialist 72), Johnston (Glen 60) & Moore (Trialist 72). Sub not used - Sneddon.
HEARTS: Noring, Smith, Oshaniwa, McGhee, Rossi (Baur 65), Godinho, King, Cowie, Todorov (Currie 67), Buchanan & Zanatta. Sub not used - Gallacher
