If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times, “An away point is always a good result.”
Today Ross County traveled to Fir Park in Motherwell where they took on a club that needs to catch them to avoid the relegation playoffs and they returned home to Dingwall with a point, still a six point lead over the Steelmen, and one less match left in the season. So, not only did County maintain their lead over Motherwell (the club below them), they also moved level on points with Kilmarnock (the club above them), who lost to Hamilton Accies. Let’s take a look at the table as it stands now:
Ross County’s highest potential point total is now 47 points and Motherwell’s is 41, which means that if County defeat last place St. Mirren next Saturday Motherwell will have to win-out and somehow manage to over come County’s +8 in the goal differential column. I’m a “homer” of the worst kind, but I just can’t see both of those things happening- especially as Motherwell still have to play Patrick Thistle (who clinched a spot in the league next year with today’s win over St. Mirren) and Kilmarnock (hoping to avoid dropping into the relegation battle) in their last three matches.
Where almost their, folks, almost home.
