Ross County forward Ross Stewart hopes the opening day 3-0 win over Hamilton Accies has given Staggies supporters cause for excitement for the Premiership campaign.
County ran out convincing winners in their first league match since winning promotion back to the top-flight, with Joe Chalmers, Billy Mckay and Stewart on target.
Although Stewart is keen to remain level-headed, the attacker hopes his side have started as they mean to continue this term.
Stewart said: “We know how strong a squad we have got here. We’ve got targets, which we will keep in-house, but it was certainly a game we felt was winnable in front of our home fans.
“We wanted to give them something to try and get excited about. At the same time – it’s only game one. These games are going to be tough and they are going to come fast.
“We will be ready for them and this was a great start.”
Stewart was an impressive performer for Stuart Kettlewell and Steven Ferguson’s men, netting once and also providing an assist for strike partner Mckay.
The former St Mirren player was happy to share the plaudits with the rest of his team-mates however, adding: “Strikers always want to get off the mark as quick as they can, and get that burden off the back.
“For both of us to do that was excellent. I’m chuffed for Billy and I’m sure he will be equally chuffed for me. It’s great to see your strike partner scoring.
“We have got to hold up our end of the stick and we each chipped in with a goal.
“We’ve got goals all about this team, and we will get the plaudits, but as a team I thought we were excellent.
“I thought the defence was equally great. Getting a shut-out gave us a platform to go and win the game.”
County make the trip to Tynecastle for their next match against Hearts on Saturday, with Stewart hopeful his side can take confidence from their promising start to the campaign.
The 23-year-old added: “We know we’ve got a lot of legs and pace in the team. If there are going to be games where we need to sit in and counter this season, it suits us to go and do that.
“We have got a lot of players who can get on the ball and play which I think we showed by scoring a lot of really good goals.
“It’s good to have different styles within the system that we can change to, because we are going to need that this season.”
