Ross County manager John Hughes won’t get carried by the Dingwall side’s memorable victory over Hibernian on Wednesday night.

The Premiership side have been struggling all season, but managed to secure a 2-0 win at Easter Road to move off the bottom of the league table. It was only County’s fourth league win of the season, and first since September.

Whilst Hughes was delighted with the win, he was eager to emphasise that it was only one game. Hughes knows that there is more work to be done.

“A solid shape”

“We had a solid shape with everybody digging in, and I felt we played some wonderful stuff in the first half. We could take it further up the pitch, but that will come as the days and weeks go by” he said.

The Ross County boss hopes that he will have some injured players back for Saturday’s game against St Johnstone.

 

“We were up against it, down to the bare bones. But hopefully come Saturday we can get one or two players back and keep moving forward. It’s only one win. We are not getting carried away. We are where we are for a reason, and we are a work in progress” Hughes continued.

Difficult start to job

Hughes admits that it has been a difficult start to the job as County have been playing non-stop. He has had little times with the players.

“It’s been very difficult. I’ve been in nine days and had three games, so I’ve not really been on the training pitch. I’ve stood back to see what I’ve got and the sessions the coaching staff are putting on are exactly what I’m looking for.”
