Jamie Lindsay wants to make his dream a reality as he targets the first silverware of his career.
The Ross County midfielder says he winning the Championship has become an all-consuming thought and he is desperate to make his wish come true by helping the Staggies win an immediate return to the Premiership this season as champions.
The 23 year-old said: “You go to bed at night and think it.
“Obviously to have gone from where we were at the start of the season to where we are now, you want to make it happen.
“But it is too early – there is still a lot of football to come. There are three games next week alone, so there are a lot of games we need to concentrate on.
“It’s a first for me – being involved in a title race – but there’s a few boys at the club who have won it before.
“It is new to me and it is pressure, but I’m enjoying it – it is the kind of pressure you want. Last season, was a very different kind of pressure, fighting to stay up, but this season we’re fighting to win the league. I know which I prefer.”
County’s title fate is in their own hands as they are five points clear at the top of the division with a game in hand following a run of six wins and two draws in their last eight league matches.
Lindsay is determined to keep it that way.
He said: “We’re in good form. It is the crucial time of the season, the one everybody talks about.
“We said at the start of the season if we can get to the latter part of the season and be top of the league, we will fight from there. So here we are.
“The belief has grown through the season. We’re top of the league for a reason. We’ve done well and won games, but when we’ve not played so well we’ve ground out games.
“We know if we keep winning as many as we can, it will be hard for teams to catch us.
“We just have to go out and play the way we have been lately. If we get the win, it is another game ticked off where other teams can’t get closer to us.”
One team who have tested County’s credentials more than any are Morton, who have beaten the Staggies twice at Cappielow this term. The Ton found Victoria Park a much tougher proposition as they lost 5-0 on their last visit, however, and Lindsay hopes that trend can continue when the sides meet in Dingwall on Saturday.
He said: “Of course it’s a grudge match – you always remember when you get beat and the feeling that comes with it.
“We did that the first time they beat us, so hopefully for the second time we can do the same.
“We’ve only lost four games in the league and they are responsible for two.”
