Ross County forward Billy Mckay is confident the Staggies can reignite their campaign following a recent slide in form.
County have gone eight Premiership matches without a victory, after relinquishing the lead in Saturday’s 2-1 loss to St Mirren in Paisley.
The Staggies have now slipped to seventh, with the defeat drawing them into a tight cluster of teams in the bottom half of the table, but Mckay is refusing to panic.
Mckay said: “We have not been on the best run, but we are still in a decent position.
“I think if we ended the season in that position, we would be happy.
“We’ve just got to take the positives, try and get that next win and go on a little run again.
“In this league it’s just about getting one or two wins and a couple of draws. Going three or four unbeaten takes you a long way, which is what we will try and do again.
“We haven’t won for a while now, so it’s all about us sticking together and trying to get that win as soon as possible to kick on again.”
County’s task does not get any easier with champions Celtic next up at Victoria Park on Sunday but Mckay is looking beyond the visit of the champions.
The former Caley Thistle forward added: “I have been in this league a lot. You can look at the next few fixtures and think they are going to be hard, but you can also look at them and think they will be easy. It all depends on what kind of momentum you’ve got.
“Aside from Celtic and Rangers, when we have played teams in and around us we have always been in every game.
“That’s what we aim to do. Between now and the end of the season I think we will be in every game, so it’s just about picking up more wins than losses.”
Mckay was left frustrated by the Staggies’ loss of a winning position against the Buddies on Saturday, adding: “For them to score on the stroke of half-time was probably the worst thing that could happen going into the break.
“We regrouped in the changing room, but we didn’t really take it into the second half.
“St Mirren were the better team in the second half – for whatever reason we just couldn’t get back into our stride again.”
Ross County will travel to Ayr United in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup, while Caley Thistle take on Alloa Athletic. Brora Rangers will meet St Johnstone if they overcome Morton in a replay a week tomorrow.
