Ross Stewart "I don’t think any team is going to look at us as an easy game"

As it stands Ross County are the only team left in the Premiership that are yet to concede a goal in this campaign. That mixed with 4 points from 6 in the league and 4 wins from 4 in the Betfred Cup means the Staggies have an ideal start to the season. We caught up with Staggies Striker, Ross Stewart to discuss.

 

On the start to the league campaign…

Obviously, we are all delighted with the performances so far, but we know that doesn’t mean that the foot comes off the gas. If you look at our next few games, there are some really tricky fixtures in there and we all know we are going to have to be at our best if we are to get anything out of these games. I think first and foremost we have to make sure that we make Dingwall a hard place to come and we have the perfect opportunity to do that if we maintain the standards we have set. I don’t think any team is going to look at us as an easy game this year and that is the way it should be.

 

On his early season goalscoring form…

As a striker the one thing you get judged on is putting the ball in the net. In the Betfred I managed to do that and obviously against Hamilton as well. For me its about trying to get as many goals as I can this season as I know that’s what every manager wants in their team. I was gutted I missed a couple of chances at Hearts, but it doesn’t really put me down too much, its more frustrating for me than anything else. It just makes me realise that if I want to be at my best I have to be taking those chances when they come during the games.

 

On the Betfred Cup…

It’s a competition that the club has won before and there are still pictures about the place of that day and how special it was for the club. It would be great to replicate that but we take it one game at a time and Partick Thistle I am sure will put up a strong fight on Saturday. I think when you look at the experience that Partick now have they can pose a really big threat to any team. They have taken in boys like Kenny Miller, Joe Cardle and Steven Saunders, all of them have played in the Premiership in their career so they will be streetwise, we just have to make sure we are at the levels we need to be at.

 

On the season ahead…

For me it’s really about scoring as many goal as I can. In the dressing room we are all aware of the support we had last season after the club was relegated from the Premiership so to get back up straight away we just want to reward the fans by giving them a Premiership team to be proud of and keep us strong in this league now and make sure we keep building for the future as County is a fantastic club with great people and we deserve to be here for the effort everybody has put in.
