A return to Birmingham City potentially beckons after today – but Charlie Lakin hopes he can secure Ross County’s Scottish Premiership future beforehand.

The midfielder has spent the season on loan at County from Birmingham City and scored a crucial goal midweek to seal a 2-1 win over Hamilton Accies. It means the Dingwall club just need a point away at Motherwell to secure their league safety.

Lakin hopes he can help the club over the line before heading back to Birmingham City: “It felt unbelievable to get the win in midweek but it’s not quite done yet so we can’t get too excited. We’ve got to go to Motherwell on Sunday and get a point. It’s a tough place to go and they are a good team.

“It would be massive for us to finish off the job but we can’t just go there and just sit back thinking we only need a point. That’s not the kind of mindset we want to be in. We want to go there and win. It would mean everything to stay in the Premiership if we can do it. Everyone was buzzing after the Accies game.

“Walking off you could see the lads were crawling off the pitch as they had all run probably more than they had run all season. Credit where it’s due and fair play to our lads as they gave it their all – and it paid off. It has been hard being in a relegation fight Getting the win last week was massive against a good Dundee United team.

“That was a big three points and then to back it up and get another victory against Hamilton was even bigger.“Now we have to look to give it one last push across the line and get that third win in a row.”
