Ross County manager John Hughes has made a bold claim about his team, who currently sit bottom of the Scottish Premiership.
Ahead of their game against Aberdeen on Saturday, Hughes has made the claim that County are capable of beating any team that they face in the Premiership.
He feels that after working with the players at County over the last few weeks, County are in a false position in the league, and are more than capable of climbing the league table.
“A false position”
“Since I’ve come in here, I feel the boys have are in a false position. I see them on the training pitch, from their commitment, their attitude, their honesty. They are in a false position” he said.
“Our problem is, like most clubs who probably find themselves in the bottom half of the league, is inconsistency” Hughes went on.
Hughes went on to send a message to Aberdeen ahead of their match on Saturday.
“When we’re good, i.e. against Hibs, we’re good, and we’re capable of beating any team. For that inconsistency, all I’m saying to my players is just make sure every team knows they’ve been in a game.
“That was the case against Livingston. It was stick or twist. We went for it, we tried to win it. I’m wanting the three points. And it’ll be the case at Aberdeen as well. Aberdeen will know they’ve been in a game” Hughes said.
Aberdeen will be favourites for the game, you have to imagine. However, Hughes seems to have a lot of confidence in his team’s ability.
