The party is over, the hard work begins now
STUART KETTLEWELL insists the party is over – and Ross County will be back hard at work tomorrow.
The Staggies savoured celebratory scenes after clinching the Championship title and grasping the trophy last Friday night against Queen of the South.
The following day’s open-top bus parade brought thousands out onto the streets of Dingwall to mark the club’s Premiership return.
But while the County co-manager enjoyed every minute of the day, he is acutely aware of the importance of finishing the season on a winning high.
Falkirk remain imperilled at the foot of the Championship table, but a shock victory at home to County might still be enough to avoid automatic relegation and earn a play-off lifeline.
The Bairns would be doomed, though, if second bottom Alloa were to take a point or three from their last league test away to Ayr United.
Kettlewell is demanding County approach the away trip with the same intensity and professionalism they have shown all season.
