Ross County midfielder Josh Mullin insists “the best is still to come” from him following an impressive start to the 2019/20 season.
The Highlanders have won all four League Cup group matches and have four points from two Scottish Premiership outings.

Mullin, who helped Dingwall claim back-to-back promotions, moved to County in 2018 and helped them win the Scottish Championship to secure a move up to the top flight. He was instrumental in their promotion, scoring 14 goals in the league through 2018/19.
“I might not repeat the numbers that I did last season, but I certainly feel like I will have a huge part to play,” he told BBC Scotland. “I think definitely the best is still to come.”
He added, “I keep giving praise to the [co] managers [Steven Ferguson and Stuart Kettlewell] but it is just the little things that they speak to me about, to go and do.
“Nothing has changed from the Championship to going up a league, it is going out and expressing yourself, and being that match-winner, so I feel I am going out with my chest puffed out and feeling good and it is just something that they instil in me, and in the other players.”
Polish side Legia Warsaw were recently credited with an interest in Mullin but the former Albion Rovers player is happy in the Highlands.
“You hear little things and you get your friends sending you stuff that is in the papers, but towards the end of the season, I had spoken to the managers and they had made it clear that they wanted me to sign a further year,” he said.

“After I had spoken to them, my head was set on that. I didn’t see any reason not to sign a further year on to that because I was certainly enjoying it.”
Despite County’s strong start to the season, Mullin says they need to keep their heads down and continue working hard.
“We are not getting ahead of ourselves,” he explained. “We obviously have our goals in-house in what we want to achieve this season but I think when you look at our squad, we have got just as good a squad as anybody in the league, obviously take Celtic and Rangers out.
“Definitely, with the quality we have got, I don’t see why we shouldn’t be competing against the other teams round about us.
“We have not set a target for top six or anything like that, that would be crazy. It is just to get as many points on the board as we can and see where it takes us.”
