Ross County manager Derek Adams hails win over Aberdeen

Ross County boss Derek Adams said his team more than deserved their 1-0 victory against Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership.

Rocco Quinn's 52nd-minute strike separated the sides in Dingwall, but Adams insisted the former Celtic man could have netted three.

"Rocco had an opportunity to get a hat-trick, but we got the one," he said.

"It was a winning goal. It's a fantastic win and keeps our unbeaten run against Aberdeen going."

The win moves Adams' side into double figures for the season and they go to within four points of the Dons, who sit in fourth place in the Scottish Premiership table.

Adams felt his side dominated the match and could have been ahead much earlier in the match, but he was content that the three points stayed at Victoria Park.

"Before half time we could have been two or three goals up, we had good opportunities to make that, but over the 90 minutes, we deserved to win the match," said Adams.

"It's another good three points for us.

"I was frustrated in first half, because we had good play and we got ourselves into good areas and the opportunities to score goals we didn't take them.

"Then, late on in the game Aberdeen pushed everybody forward, but to win 1-0 and keep another clean sheet, our third of the season, it was a pleasing afternoon.

"We're four points off Aberdeen now, so that tells you how good our season is."
