County top-six Locke out
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.
