Ross County striker Michael Gardyne says the team is “brimming with confidence” after taking a point from their away match against Heart of Midlothian this past weekend.
The Staggies drew 0-0 at Tynecastle and put in an impressive display against the Scottish Premiership heavyweights. In fact, the visitors should have claimed all three points, with Brian Graham missing a late penalty.

“It’s early doors but we’re brimming with confidence just now, we won our Betfred Cup games, won the first game of the season and we could have got a result here,” Gardyne said.
“We’ve got our own in-house targets and what we think we can achieve. We’ve just come up, people would say the top five picks itself and that there’s maybe one spot up for grabs in the top six and everyone will be fighting for that.
“It’s that old cliche, one game at a time and it’s standing us in good stead at the moment.
“We’re gutted we didn’t get the win on Saturday.
“We felt comfortable and we had a good shape when Hearts had the ball and limited them to going wide and going long.

“It’s good because people probably expected us to play one up top.
“To play the way we did last week was nice and sometimes when you go away you need to have a go, you can’t just sit in.”
Ross County will return to League Cup action next Saturday when they travel to Partick Thistle for a second round clash.
