With three home league games in a row coming up Ross County manager John Hughes has disclosed that he is looking to improve on his side’s record at the Global Energy Stadium.

So far this season, Ross County have won only two of their 13 league games at home. Hughes knows that if he can improve on this record it will the task of staying in the Premiership much easier. That could start when County face Dundee United on Saturday.

“We have to do that”

“If you win your home games you are well in. It’s always been renowned to be a tough place, coming up to Ross County. We have to do that. We have to turn this place into a fortress. The only way you can do that is win” he said.

“We need to let teams know, it’s happened at that Aberdeen game (County won 4-1). It was just one of them, and right out the traps. And hopefully that’ll be the case on Saturday” Hughes stated.

Proud of spirit in squad

Hughes was also proud of his players for the way they came from behind and defeated Hamilton 2-1 in their previous league game.

“I’ve said that for day one, since I’ve come in – they are a real, hard-working honest bunch of boys. That result against Hamilton gives us some breathing space. But if we don’t take advantage of that and kick on, then it’s going to go right down to the wire.

“We have to make sure that at home, against teams that we fancy our chances against, let’s go and take the game to them and see how it pans out. But I just feel that there’s a right good spirit amongst them.”
