I’ll take it.
Was it an own goal? Don’t care.
Was it a Jake Jervis handball? Don’t care.
Were Caley denied a potentially match-winning penalty? Don’t care.
It’s a desperately needed away point in a local derby and, while a win and three points would have been better, I’ll take it.
With the bad weather and the bobbly pitch yesterday’s match was not much of an advertisement for the “beautiful game,” but it was a good effort from County’s occasionally suspect back line, Liam Boyce didn’t score a goal, but made it clear why he should start every match, and while both Raffaele De Vita and Ruben Palazuelos made the match day roster, only the latter saw action (replacing Filip Kiss midway through the second half). Darvydas Sernas did not make the match day squad.
Yesterday’s point still leaves County propping up the Scottish Premiership table, trailing 11th place Motherwell and 10th place St. Mirren by six points. The good news is that County has a match in hand over Motherwell and two matches in hand over St. Mirren, so a few good results in a row (something County haven’t been able to muster thus far, to be honest) and County could be back in the escape from relegation race. Up next are second place Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Saturday.
