Ross County boss John Hughes says his side are failing to do the “fundamentals” after they suffered a blow in their relegation battle by losing to St Mirren.
The Staggies lost 3-1 in Dingwall after Jordan White’s opener was cancelled out by Lee Erwin, Ilkay Durmus and a Jamie McGrath penalty.
After the loss to St Mirren, Hughes told Sportsound: “It was even stevens in the first half, our shape wasn’t too bad and got our goal. If we had got 2-0 at half-time, it could have been a different game.
“The goals that we’ve conceded are the same as we have against Inverness (3-1 Scottish Cup loss) and Kilmarnock (2-2 league draw), it’s bread and butter stuff. It’s the do’s and the don’ts of football. We weren’t resolute enough in the second half.
“Even at 1-1, you’re still in the game, so to concede the second and third goals is criminal. I’ll never question their commitment, but it’s the fundamentals we have to get right.”
