Despite two of those three defeats having been against the two giants of Scottish football in Rangers and Celtic, fans will be concerned about their club’s form heading into the business end of the campaign.
Ross County have won just two of their last eight in the league, while their progression in the League Cup was ended by Ange Postecoglou’s side way back in August.
Jordan White is leading the club’s scoring charts with four goals to his name in 18 appearances, meaning that he has already equalled his tally of last season.
