Ross County’s Iain Vigurs has no doubt about the importance of tomorrow night’s relegation six-pointer against Hamilton.
The Dingwall side go into the game – which is in Hamilton – one point ahead of Hamilton at the bottom of the table. However, Hamilton have two games in hand. Still, a win for County over their nearest relegation rivals would open up a four point gap at the bottom of the table.
Upset at losing recent game
Vigurs says it is a game that his team have to win, especially after dropping points to relegation candidates Motherwell in their last league game. County led 1-0 but still lost 2-1, a result which hurt Vigurs.
“Any game you play against a team around you is a six-pointer. Against Motherwell, for me personally it was a real sore one”he said.
“Second-half just didn’t go the way wanted it to go, and I think we let ourselves down. But once again, we’ve got another game against a team that’s around us. We have to win it. Doesn’t matter how we do it, we just have to get the three points on the board” Vigurs continued.
Morale remains good
Despite Ross County’s lowly place in the league table, Vigurs has disclosed that morale amongst the players remains high.
“I’ve been at a couple of clubs where it starts to play on the boys when they’re not winning games. Here that doesn’t happen. The boys are upbeat. So, the morale is pretty good at the moment” Vigurs stated.
The game between Hamilton and Ross County is their third of the season. Both games so far have seen the away team win, County winning 1-0 in August, whilst Hamilton won 2-0 in Dingwall in December.
