County trio closing in on return

Ross County co-manager Stuart Kettlewell hopes the Staggies can use the international break to ease a number of players back to fitness.

County had seven players absent from their 3-0 defeat to Aberdeen last weekend, with the Dingwall men returning to Premiership action at home to St Mirren on Saturday.

Defender Liam Fontaine returned to training last week after being sidelined with hamstring injury, while Lewis Spence has returned to non-contact training following a dislocated shoulder, with fellow midfielder Don Cowie stepping up his recovery from a knee operation.

Kettlewell hopes to make the most of the break, and he said: “Not only do we get a little bit of work into the guys and give them a couple of days to make sure they are fresh, but we are seeing it as a huge opportunity to maybe get one or two back closer to playing.

“When we’ve got guys of the calibre we have in the physio room or the gym at the minute, we feel as if we are missing out on something.

“We are just desperate to get them all back available – it gives us a headache.

“We felt we had a massive headache on week one when we were selecting a team, but after a week or so that started to diminish – our numbers have been tighter and our options have been slightly more limited.

“We genuinely believe if we can get these guys fit, we become a stronger version of what we can be.”
