Ross County defender Brian McLean knows the Staggies can’t afford many more slips if they are to keep alive their hopes of making the top six after they suffered a surprise 2-1 defeat by Hearts at Victoria Park on Saturday.

The Staggies were expected to continue their revival in 2014 against the Jambos but suffered their first loss of the year after a poor display as Gary Locke’s team celebrated its first win since November 9.

County remain in 10th place, 11 points behind sixth-placed St Johnstone, and McLean knows they must close the gap quickly.
