Scott Ross feels the ruthless instinct that took Cove Rangers out of the Highland League will stand them in good stead in League 2.
Cove have dropped just four points from a possible 39 in their inaugural season in League 2 and hold a five-point lead at the top.
Ross was part of sides that won back-to-back Highland League titles, in which they lost just three league games over the course of two seasons. In the 2017-18 campaign, they won the league by 11 points before losing out to Cowdenbeath in the play-offs, while there was an eight-point gap to second place when they retained the title.
Ross said: “From the Highland League, some games we were winning seven or eight-nil. We never seemed to take our foot off the pedal. We just go gung-ho at times and look to get the next goal and the next goal.
“Nothing has really changed from last season. It’s just the way that we play.
“As soon as we got the first against Brechin, they would have to open up. With the talent we’ve got up front, we’re going to find space.”
Ross was referring to Saturday’s 3-0 win over Brechin City, which Cove dominated for large spells of the game but were still finding the league’s bottom side difficult to break down.
Ross added: “It can be frustrating but you just have to keep the head and go play the football you can play.”
