Kettlewell will take Ross County back to basics before St Johnstone come calling in league action


By Andrew Henderson


Ross County co-manager Stuart Kettlewell has implored his squad to do the simple things right, believing that results will follow.

Kettlewell felt that County made it easy for their hosts, and says things need to improve ahead of St Johnstone’s visit to Dingwall tomorrow.

“It’s about adopting basic principles, and assuring that your concentration are fully there through 90 minutes of football,” he explained.

“The bit that’s frustrating us is that we can switch on and off from one game to the next. The task is to address that and find a level.

“It may be that we don’t have a 50/50 possession split, but you have to trust you have an attacking threat.

“We have to be able to join our lines up to make sure that we’re difficult to play against, and that’s something that simply comes with dealing with situations in games.”
