Last January, Adams was busy in the winter window, bringing in the likes of Ivan Sproule and Evangelos Ikonomou, and his side duly embarked on an 11-match unbeaten run with eight victories and three draws.

MacGregor told the Ross-shire Journal: "I think we could be quite active in January again, but that is down to the manager.

"Derek has quite rightly put out the message to the players that, unless they actually step up, he is going to have to take in more players in January.

"It is up to them to prove to him between now and January that we don't need to take players in.

"The budget is there to take in new players if needs be and Derek knows what to do. He has proven adept at that in the past and that's why I'm not particularly concerned.

"Yes, I'd like results to be better but we're not particularly worried.

"Our crowds, impressively, have held up. You look at some of the other clubs in the top division and their crowds have really been affected.

"We still have that bounce factor whereby, even though we haven't performed as well as we might, people haven't deserted us.

"But if we haven't got to where we want to be by Christmas, those fans would need to see that we are serious about putting it right in the New Year.

"Everyone is working very hard towards finding that consistency and we need to particularly win our games against teams around about us in the league.

"I do think, overall, we have more quality in the team this year. Technically we are better, so I'm confident we will put it right.

"But you can be assured we are working hard behind the scenes towards putting it right and we will have to sort some of that in January."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
