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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
