Sam Morrow believes team spirit has helped Ross County challenge for a top six place in their first season in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

The County forward played a big part in his side's 3-0 victory over Motherwell at Global Energy Stadium on Saturday, with Ivan Sproule, Richard Brittain and Iain Vigurs scoring as the Dingwall cruised to their sixth win in their last eight fixtures.

Morrow said: "We've had six wins and two draws in the last eight games, nearly a third of the season unbeaten so we're doing okay.

"We'll keep trying to put the points on the board and see where it takes us.

"We've got good players here and everybody is pulling in the right direction. We work hard for each other, we're very united in the changing room.

"We're just going about our business quietly. We've no aspirations, this is the first season the club has been in the SPL, so we're doing well."

Looking ahead to Tuesday night's match against Aberdeen at Pittodrie, he added: "Aberdeen is a big side, they are probably the third biggest side in Scotland after the Old Firm.

"We'll just try and do our best and see where it takes us."

Morrow was particularly please with his own form as the side's lone marksman.

He said: "I played well but it's a bit of a thankless task up there on your own.

"That's six or seven games up there on my own. I'm the only player on the pitch that is playing against two players.

"You want to be in two places at once at times. You want to be the one holding the ball up and also the one getting on the end of the pass.

"You can't do it, you can't be in two places at once. But as long as the team is winning and putting the points on the board I'm happy.

"We've found ourselves in a great place with the run we're on. The target at the start of the year was survival.

"We're happy ticking along and see where it takes us. If it's top six, then brilliant."

Motherwell captain Keith Lasley admitted his side were well below par.

He said: "It wasn't great but credit to Ross County. The conditions were difficult but both teams have to play on that and Ross County played a lot better than we did.

"But the pitch is not the reason we lost the game, we just never got going. Ross County started on the front foot and we didn't.

"We just didn't put anything together. We never passed the ball well and we never got in behind them. It just wasn't acceptable."

Lasley is looking for a reaction before the match against league leaders Celtic at Fir Park on Wednesday.

He said: "It will be a difficult game, we'll have to see if we can get a reaction. But there is no reason why we can't go and win that game.

"That's what we have to focus on now. But we're going to have to be a lot better than we were yesterday if we are going to get a result."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
