Cowie on survival belief, honest conversations and Saints expectations

Ross County interim manager Don Cowie has been speaking to BBC Scotland as his side gear up for a pivotal relegation clash with St Johnstone on Wednesday.

Here are the key points:

  • Insists players are feeling "really positive" heading into a "really important" game on Wednesday.

  • Believes the group's "honesty" has helped them reflect and move on from a heavy defeat to Motherwell at the weekend.

  • Says his side have created "belief" in their form before Saturday, though stresses they must "match and go beyond" the performance set by St Johnstone.

  • Expects a fast start from the home side to rouse the home crowd, but thinks he has players that can "hurt the opposition".

  • Has seen "more than enough" over the past two months to assure him they will secure their Premiership status.
