Andrew Boyle says Ross County were determined to put things right after losing at Alloa by winning the Highland derby on Tuesday night.

The 27-year-old defender scored the winner in the 2-1 victory over Inverness Caledonian Thistle to put them back in a commanding position in the Championship title race.

The Staggies are five points clear of Dundee United with a game in hand as the two teams at the top of the table go head-to-head in Dingwall.

Boyle admitted Ross County had underperformed in recent matches and was relieved to get three points to ease the pressure on his team.

The main thing for us was the result and bouncing back from Saturday as our performance wasn’t good enough," he said.

"We wanted to put it right in the derby and it wasn’t pretty due to the conditions but it is a massive three points."
