Ross County midfielder Jamie Lindsay feels the Staggies have regained momentum in their pursuit of the Championship title.
Following back-to-back league defeats against Morton and Queen of the South, County returned to winning ways on Saturday with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Alloa Athletic at Victoria Park, which followed their Scottish Cup triumph over Motherwell the previous weekend.
County’s victory over the Wasps restores their three-point lead at the top of the Championship, after the Dingwall men had been knocked off top spot on goal difference by Ayr United’s victory over Dundee United on Friday night.
Although Ayr could reclaim top spot with a victory over Caley Thistle tomorrow, Lindsay is solely focused on the Staggies’ own agenda.
He said: “I didn’t watch the Ayr game but we have got to expect that. There are probably three teams in it so we have just got to look after ourselves and win our games.
“When teams come up here, it has been the same all season. They have got no pressure on them because we are expected to win.
“Hopefully we can build on this. We had two disappointing results and performances but last week against Motherwell it was back to where it has been previously and we have built on it
this week with a 2-0 win.”
Lindsay’s second-half goal sealed the points for County after Declan McManus had made an early breakthrough and the former Celtic midfielder aims to contribute more goals during the run-in.
The 23-year-old added: “The boys were giving me a bit of stick for having a bit of a goal drought.
“I probably should have had one at Motherwell last week, and I probably should have scored the initial shot this time but I was happy enough to score the rebound.
“That’s six for the season so hopefully I can chip in with a few more and get into double figures.”
Alloa manager Jim Goodwin said: “Goals change games, it’s as simple as that.
“But the players deserve credit for the run they have been on.”
