ROSS County captain Jack Baldwin says his team need to figure out how to get back to winning ways over the international break after falling into the relegation zone with a 1-0 defeat against St Johnstone.

The Staggies have dropped to 11th place in the table after a 1-0 defeat at McDiarmid Park with Graham Carey scoring the winner in the 70th minute.

Ross County are only above Livingston at the bottom of the table on goal difference and are now nine games without a win in all competitions.

Ross County have not won a game since a 1-0 victory at Kilmarnock over two months ago on September 2.

The Staggies don’t return to action until they host Kilmarnock at the Global Energy Stadium in Dingwall on Saturday, November 25.

Baldwin says it was a disappointing performance against St Johnstone and is frustrated they have to wait so long to get back into action.

However, he says they will be working hard on the training pitch to put things right during the international break.

“It is frustrating we have to wait a while until we get going again,” he said.

“Coming off a defeat like that, you want to try put things right as soon as possible.

“We will watch the game back this week and look how we can do better.

“But it gives the chance for two weeks on the training pitch to make things better.

“We will do some good work on the training pitch, and it is frustrating we have to wait so long.

“But it gives us two weeks to put things right when the fixtures start up again after the international break.”

Despite falling to 11th place, Baldwin says there is plenty of time to get out of trouble.

“The league is wide open and everyone is grouped in tightly,” he said.

“It is the team which can be most consistent with their performances that can pull away. That is something we need to try and focus on. Against St Johnstone we were off it, and we will look to pick up points in the fixtures coming up.”
