Paul Heffernan bagged a brace on his first start of the season following an injury lay-off while Gary Harkins celebrated his return to the starting line-up with a superb finish.

All the goals came after the break but the hosts had been on top for much of the match and could have been clear by half-time.

Shiels said: "It was a good game of football and Ross County made a fantastic contribution. After the 0-0 draw with them earlier in the season I said we should both get points taken off us as it was boring game.

"But this time both teams contributed to a really good game of football.

"We showed a lot of creativity and created about 10 or 12 chances. The movement of the front two pleased me but the work rate throughout the team was great.

"We had a couple of efforts cleared off the line in the first half and at half-time I told the players that we were the more likely team to score and after we did in the second half we took command."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
