Co-manager Steven Ferguson says Ross County will learn from the first half of the Premiership season as they try to steer clear of immediate relegation back to the Championship.

The Staggies sit just three points clear of the relegation play-off after picking up two wins in their last 14 matches.

However, there were signs of a revival at the start of last month with back-to-back home victories over Hibernian and Kilmarnock.

Ferguson thinks it cannot be forgotten that County have only just come back up from the second tier, and believes they will be stronger for their experiences before the winter break.

“It’s a different type of game management to when we were in the Championship,” Ferguson said.

“We’ve already highlighted that if you do make mistakes or you do not manage the game properly, then you’re much more exposed to conceding than we were in the Championship.

“As the team coming up from the Championship – and that can be forgotten – there is a learning curve that we need to switch on to.
