24/08/19 LADBROKES PREMIERSHIP ROSS COUNTY vs LIVINGSTON (1-4) GLOBAL ENERGY STADIUM - DINGWALL Ross County's Liam Fontaine suffers an injury

Ross County defender Liam Fontaine is fit to return for tomorrow’s Premiership match against St Mirren.

Englishman Fontaine suffered a hamstring injury in County’s 4-1 home loss to Livingston on August 24, which caused his side to sit out of the 3-0 loss to Aberdeen the following weekend.

Although County were without seven players for the trip to Pittodrie, co-manager Steven Ferguson says Fontaine is the nearest to a return.

Ferguson said: “Liam Fontaine has trained all week and is feeling good. He’s ready to go. Other than that, we’re pretty much the same.

“The boys who were playing were maybe carrying wee bumps and scrapes, and they’ve had an extra few days to tidy those up.

“They will be fitter and in a better frame of mind regarding their physical condition regarding this game.

“The international break came at a good time. Normally, you don’t like going into it off the back of a defeat.

“But in the situation we found ourselves, we were needing a wee break and it probably came at the right time.

“We feel we’ve used the time well, so there will be no excuses come Saturday. We should be ready to play.”

Ferguson sees tomorrow’s visit of Saints as an opportunity to make amends following their crushing loss to Livi in their last Dingwall outing, and he added: “We’ve had a decent home record since Stuart Kettlewell and I took over, albeit the last time we played Livingston we were well beaten.

“As always in football, we have an opportunity to put that right – this is our next time at home.

“We probably owe our supporters a little bit for that performance against Livingston, so we definitely need to put that right and get them back onside.

“They’ve been really supportive of Stuart and I, and of the group, so we need to make sure we give them something to cheer about, with at very least 100 per cent effort and commitment.”
