Ross County manager Derek Adams insists forward Liam Boyce still has some way to go before he is ready for the start of the new Scottish Premiership season.
The Northern Ireland international has netted three goals in his first three friendly outings for Ross County.
Despite finding his way to goal, the Staggies manager feels the 23-year-old is still short of match sharpness.
Adams said: “Liam did well with the goal on Saturday against Nairn, but he’s still short of match fitness. He’s probably only at 50 or 60% just now so he’s got a wee bit to go.
“It’s good to get him minutes. He got two games last week, and half a game on Saturday.”
County’s pre-season schedule continues in Holland this week, and Adams believes his side will benefit from a third consecutive year training in Delden.
He added: “We have competition all over the park now, and it’s important you have that. Everybody has had game-time over pre-season, and now we start to step it up in Holland.
“We’ve got two weeks to go, and we get down to the business where we want to sharpen things up, tighten the team up and get ready for the St Johnstone match.
“The trip to Holland is very important for us, we go back to Delden where we’ve been the last two years. It’s always been a good venue for us.
“We’ve got FC Twente to play on Friday night and that will be the hardest test of all.”
