Jonny Hayes | Ross County Preview

“We showed good character in our last game against Rangers but we want to be picking up more points. We go to Dingwall on Saturday looking to pick up the three points and hopefully we can achieve that.

“To turn the draws we have had into wins, quite simply we need to score more goals. At the start of the season we wanted to build some strong foundations with a strong defensive unit and being hard to beat. We have a formation that lends itself to be able to do that as well as attack. Maybe at the back of our minds we know we have been doing well defensively and want to keep that going rather than attacking and scoring goals. It is up to us as a players, as a unit on the pitch, we need to recognise that during the game and commit more bodies forward.

“We need to put more emphasis on scoring goals and that means the players taking more responsibility, whether that be with creating chances or having more shots.

“The challenge for a club of our size should always be to be ambitious and look forward. No matter where you are in the table. You have to keep looking ahead and push on. Our job is to keep looking forward and put as many points on the board as we can. We just focus on one game at a time, and that is all we can do at the moment with the games coming thick and fast.

“We have played Ross County a couple of times already and did well previously. We will want to show the same form but we know that Saturday will be a completely different game. No two games are ever the same. Even when you play the same team in a short space of time. Circumstances can change very early in a match.

“I have a lot of time for John Hughes. I think he is a very good manager. I have never heard anyone in the game say a bad word about him. I know for a fact he will get a reaction from his players and they will look to try and climb the table.

“After not playing on Wednesday all the boys are feeling fresh and raring to go.”
