McIntyre seeks consistency from up and down Staggies

They’re still on course for one of their best ever Ladbrokes Premiership finishes, but if Ross County are to do so, they’ll need to find consistency.

Those are the instructions from manager Jim McIntyre, who has seen his side fail to put together a meaningful run since a five-game unbeaten spell in September.

Indeed the Staggies haven’t drawn a league contest for other three months, going on to win or lose each of their 14 fixtures.

The Dingwall club have won successive games just twice this term, and McIntyre is calling on his team to find some consistency as the crunch part of the season looms.

“We know our consistency levels over the last couple of months has been the reason for our results,” the 43-year-old explained.

“If we want to remain in the top six, our consistency levels need to improve in the next 10 games – it’s as simple as that.

“We’ve got 10 games between now and the split and we’ve got to maximise as many points as possible and show better consistency,” the Scot added.

County still hold fifth place, but their indifferent form means Dundee United now sit a point behind in sixth, with Inverness just a further point behind in seventh.

Crucially both of those sides have a game in hand on the Staggies ahead of the split.

Just two away wins haven’t helped County’s cause this term either, but they have an opportunity to improve that record this weekend at Motherwell.

McIntyre’s men are 11/8 favourites to win at Fir Park, with the hosts 15/8.

With matches at home to Hearts and then away at Celtic following immediately after, this contest could be crucial to how this campaign turns out for the Dingwall club.
