Defender Jamie Reckord believes Ross County’s surge in form means his side is capable of beating any team in the top flight, but feels certain the best is still to come.
The former Wolves player, an England under-17 international, emphasised the confidence in the team in the build-up to next Saturday’s trip to Dundee United.
County climbed seven points above bottom-placed St Mirren and three above Motherwell in the play-off spot after triumphing 2-1 at home to Kilmarnock last Saturday.
It was a performance which should have reaped a more handsome margin of victory but cemented County’s status as one of the Premiership’s form teams.
The win made it six games unbeaten – including five victories – ahead of the final three pre-split matches against United, St Johnstone and St Mirren.
Reckord, 23, is a career wanderer who has finally found direction in Dingwall and is relishing the coming challenges.
He said: “I don’t think having the break matters, really, because we’re on a winning run. I think momentum is going to stay with us. Confidence is high and we go into every game believing we can win it. We are a tight-knit team now and everyone knows exactly what our jobs are.
“The formation we’re playing, with two up front, just works for us. That’s gone down well.
“When I first arrived we were unlucky at times. Things didn’t go our way. But it is amazing how, when you get that little bit of momentum, everything changes.”
Reckord is not ready to rest on laurels, though, given the magnitude of what remains in the season.
The powerful left back said: “There is more to come. I don’t see why we can’t keep this run going. We see other teams and think they’re not better than us. Before we probably doubted ourselves a little bit.
“Now we step out in matches and think we’re better than the opposition. It’s showing. We’re dominating games and getting results.”
Reckord rates Dundee United but added: “They pass the ball well, but if we get in about them, like we have against other teams, we can get three points. I can’t see why not.”
Reckord, after five loan deals from Wolves in his young career, is happy and settled at County and said: “In the past, it has not gone too well for me in some of my loan moves away. Now I’m signed up and committed to Ross County on a permanent basis and I’m really enjoying it.
“I feel my form is good – I’m consistent, something I’ve lacked in the past. I don’t want to change anything. I hope I can keep it up. It could be I stay beyond the summer, but we’ll have to wait until the end of the season before that is decided.”
