Ross County midfielder Ryan Dow was thrilled his side finally got the three points he believes recent performances merited in Saturday’s dramatic 2-1 victory against Aberdeen at Victoria Park.
The Staggies, who had been reduced to 10 men in the latter stages following defender Kenny van der Weg’s red card, secured an unlikely victory against the Dons through Dow’s late header, which came after Niall McGinn had cancelled out Liam Boyce’s opener for the home side.
Dow had been frustrated in recent weeks as County failed to capitalise on periods of dominance, with this just their second victory during an unbeaten stretch of six games.
The 25-year-old feels the best has yet to come from his side and said: “It’s a great result for us, going down to 10 men and getting the winner against a team such as Aberdeen is brilliant.
“They were on top for a bit without creating too much, but it shows good character from our players.
“It’s great to get momentum going. We’ve had a couple of draws, but when we pick up wins here and there they are good draws.
“They all add up. We still feel aggrieved, especially with the Hamilton and Dundee games. We feel like we should be sitting with an extra six points.
“We’ve been playing well. That wasn’t the best performance, we’ve played better and we know we can play even better, but that’s a massive three points.
“I think there is still more to come so hopefully we can build on it.”
Dow’s 87th-minute header was his first goal since joining the Staggies from Dundee United in September, and having worked his way back to fitness after being sidelined for much of last season with a pelvic injury.
He added: “Coming in, with my injury problems, the manager knew I needed to get up to speed. I played a few games and fell out of the team.
“I didn’t play my best, I had a couple of decent games and then I fell away. The manager spoke to me and told me just to get into more goalscoring opportunities.
“It was good to get my first, and being the winner as well made it even better.”
