Derek Adams delighted at Ross County's first SPL win

Ross County celebrate Richard Brittain's (second from left) penalty winner

Fourth place in the Scottish Premier League and a record of 38 unbeaten league games gave Ross County manager Derek Adams grounds to be pleased following their 1-0 win at Dundee.

"I'm delighted. It's a very important win for us and takes our unbeaten run in the Premier League to four games," Adams told BBC Scotland.

Richard Brittain's second-half penalty was the difference between the sides.

"Richard is very composed. He is an important player," added the manager.

"He scored a tremendous goal last week against Celtic and this week he has scored another important goal for us."

The win at Dens Park was County's first in the top tier since their run of 34 games unbeaten last season helped them clinch the First Division title.

"The 38 games is a great record to have and it's brilliant to also have six points on the board in the SPL, especially after a difficult opening run of games against Aberdeen, Motherwell, Celtic and Dundee," said Adams.

"It's terrific that Ross County can do so well in the Premier League but we've got a long way to go."

Grant Munro and Ross Tokely joined County after their release by rivals Inverness and Adams thinks the addition of the veteran duo has helped County keep three clean sheets in their four SPL matches.

The manager added: "We've got good experience in the back four. Along with Scott Boyd and Marc Fitzpatrick, Munro and Tokely are experienced players, and we have Michael Fraser in goal - all good players."

The talking point of the match against Dundee came after 71 minutes when Mark Corcoran was brought down in the box by Neil McGregor and referee Steven McLean pointed to the spot.

"It was a clear penalty," said Adams, who hopes to add to his squad before the transfer window closes.

"We got in behind the right back and then across somebody else. You just can't dive in when you are in the box.

"It was unfortunate for them and you are always disappointed when you concede a penalty but looking at it, I thought it was a definite penalty."
