Football fans urged to make trip in vital Ross County relegation clash

Written byStaff Reporter

Ross County is asking fans to phone the stadium or visit in person until the problem is resolved.ROSS County fans are being urged to “keep believing” as the club’s top flight status hangs by a thread in the run up to the last day of the season.

The negative economic impact on Ross-shire and the wider Highland community should County drop down a division on Saturday was acknowledged by co-manager Stuart Kettlewell following Tuesday night’s disappointing 1-0 defeat to Dundee.

Kettlewell (pictured), infuriated after an apparent clear cut penalty claim was waved away by referee Andrew Dallas, knows his side must now beat St Johnstone in Perth – and hope that Partick Thistle fail to win at Dundee – on the last day of the season simply to secure a play-off position.

Calling for accountability over questionable decisions, he said: “It’s... a case where if you’re relegated, then people lose their jobs. That’s how it works, it’s a harsh reality of the world. You never seem to get any explanation.”

Supporter liaison officer Kenny MacLennan, who literally bangs the drum for the club at matches, took to Twitter: “Still a bit numb – but we have one last push on Saturday. It would be good to see a big noisy support in Perth to back the team to three points – we have to keep believing – we have the right men in charge regardless. The future of our club is solid.”

Alness-based superfan Jailender was also philosphical: “Last night was disappointing, but we’ve got one chance left.

“The team need the fans behind them more than ever now, so let’s get a good support down to Perth.

“Get right behind the team for one final push.”
