Keith Watson says Ross County need to keep their cup final mentality to get over the line in the Championship title race.

Dundee United have spent the last week attempting to close the gap at the top of the table, playing twice in the league while the Staggies have been focused on lifting silverware.

Off the back of the high of winning the Irn-Bru Cup, County travel to Recreation Park to take on Alloa on Saturday.

And Watson says their success can inspire them to make it a trophy double in Dingwall by the end of the season.

“Players go through their whole careers without lifting trophies, and as a team and as a group of players we’ve done it together,” he explained.

“We enjoyed it that much we want to go and do it again, and that’s the way we look at it going into these last eight games.

“They’re eight cup finals really, because obviously Dundee United are picking up points."
