The Staggies go into the international break in fifth place after a 1-0 win over Kilmarnock on Saturday.

It has been an excellent start to the campaign for Ross County, with two wins out of four and good performances despite defeats to Celtic and Rangers.

Reid, who rejoined Ross County from Coventry City in the summer, says the number of permanent transfers compared to loan deals this summer, could be a positive factor for the club as they look to avoid a relegation dogfight like last season.

He believes they are good enough to finish in the top half of the table like they did two seasons ago.

"There are a few new boys in and a lot of permanent transfers in," said Reid.

"It is good to know these players are going to be here for the next couple of years and we can be a really good group and challenge for the top six.

"We know we have the quality in the dressing room and have good boys there and can push into the top six."

Reid says the 1-0 win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park was a real statement of intent from Ross County of what can be achieved this season.

He says that confidence is strong in the Staggies' dressing room.

"It has been a really good start and it is a good group of boys.

"The Rangers and Celtic games were always going to be tough but we have performed well.

"We are through to the quarter finals of the League Cup and two wins in the Premiership so it has been a good start.

"Kilmarnock is a hard place to come and everyone knows that with the astroturf and they are a good team. They do what they do well and we stood up to the challenge."
