Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has called for concentration from his side as they face the multiple threats Ross County will present today.
The Dons face the Staggies at Victoria Park in Dingwall bidding for a third win in a row but McInnes is wary of the threat of Stuart Kettlewell and Steven Ferguson’s side in the Highlands.
He said: “Ross County have had a few convincing wins and I think they have been good value so far who will keep defences including ours on their toes. I look at them in comparison to a lot of teams in the Premiership and I think their frontline has a lot of variation and goals in them that they can have confidence of staying in the league.
“They’ve got Brian Graham, Ross Stewart, Lee Erwin, Billy Mckay and Michael Gardyne who I’ve always thought is a good player.
“They have good wide players but centrally they have good options and whatever way they line-up they carry a threat. That’s a credit to them as when I watched them in the Championship last season they always tried to attack.
“That’s what they’ve tried to do since coming back up so they are very positive with their team selections.”
County’s willingness to attack has resulted in them conceding 25 goals in 12 games but McInnes said: “Sometimes that’s the trade off but fair play to them as they have been very brave with their selections and it has paid dividends.”
Sam Cosgrove and Craig Bryson have both recovered from knocks to travel with the squad and McInnes is hoping to see his side take the club into the international break with momentum.
He said: “Hopefully we can get another good team performance regardless of who plays as I have got good options which I haven’t been able to say too often this season.
“We have had three 3-0 wins this season including one against Ross County and of course the win at Motherwell was a good performance despite the injuries. Then the Celtic game came along when there were more questions than answers but we responded well with two solid wins. We were looking for three wins going into the international break and that’s where we are now.”
