Jack Baldwin believes that when Ross County win their first game of the Premiership season, it will serve as confirmation of the progress being made in Dingwall.

The tough start the Staggies faced is well-established, but with three creditable draws to show for their efforts so far there is plenty of optimism around the Global Energy Stadium.

Really, one of the only things missing to this point is marking something in the win column, and Baldwin has faith that belief in the group will only skyrocket when that happens.

“It will just be confirmation of where we are as a team,” the 28-year-old reasoned.

“We have created chances against the best teams in the league, and we’ve been unlucky not to win games.

“The two goals we conceded last week were a deflection and a brilliant free kick.

“The way a game goes, swinging to and from, we defended well. We defended a lot of crosses, and obviously they were attacking towards their fans but we held out pretty well.

“Getting that first win would be massive for us as a group to cement that belief that we’re a good team and we can produce results.”

Baldwin is enjoying Highland life so far.

Off the pitch as much as on it he is settling in, and he was delighted to see the entire County squad quickly singing from the same hymn sheet.

“We had a conversation out on the pitch with the manager where everybody had a voice, and everybody can demand from each other but understand that it’s coming from the right place,” Baldwin explained.

“It’s not moaning for the sake of moaning, it’s people actively demanding more from their teammates because for whatever reason someone might not be pulling their weight that day, or might be slightly off it and need someone to pull them through.

“We want the best for each other because as a team we can only get to where we want to be with each other.”
