Stuart Kettlewell has told his Ross County players they must help out Chelsea kid Nathan Baxter after he made his home Staggies debut.

The young keeper’s gametime has been limited this season due to injury. It’s meant he’s struggled for minutes in Dingwall since his move from Chelsea earlier in the season.

Baxter managed to make his debut against St Mirren though a couple of weeks ago and his home debut came against Celtic at the weekend. It was a tough learning curve for the stopper.

He was left pretty helpless as Celtic cruised past County 4-1. Baxter himself didn’t do too badly, with the Chelsea loanee saving a penalty, showing good distribution and handling in his box.

There were a few shaky moments but overall he equipped himself well. Kettlewell is now calling on Baxter’s County teammates to give him a hand.

Speaking about Baxter’s weekend performance, Kettlewell said: “I think he did fine. Nathan’s a young lad who’s got about 120 games, so he’s got decent experience.

“It’s just a case of trying to bed him in now. The obvious way to do that is by building confidence throughout the rest of the team and trying to pick up a result.

“That’ll be our focus.”
