Attack will be the best form of defence for Ross County tonight according to striker Brian Graham as the Staggies prepare to host Rangers.
They will take on a rampant Gers side in Dingwall who have scored over 50 goals already this season. Despite this, it seems as if County have an attacking plan.
Striker Graham says that they won’t sit back against the Gers, instead opting for a more offensive approach.
He told the Scotsman (page 61, 30/10/19): “The way Rangers and Celtic are playing just now they are both well out in front at the moment, everybody knows that. I think the best way to defend is to attack.
“You’ve got to put them under pressure. We are at home, we have to attack them, put them under pressure. We can’t just sit off and let them pick us off because they are good enough to do that.
“So, go and attack, put them on the back foot and see how the game pans out.”
Ross County must be careful against Rangers
It’s commendable that County want to take the game to Rangers but they must be careful. Open up too much and the likes of Alfredo Morelos will have a field day.
Motherwell showed on Sunday that Rangers can be troubled by a more robust approach. The Well sat in and looked to hit on the counter with a physical battle played at a high pace.
Rangers struggled to deal with this in the first half but adapted after the break. It seems as if County are going for the alternative method of trying to play through Steven Gerrard’s men.
Whether they have the ability to do that is another question but Graham certainly seems confident ahead of the big clash.
