Ross County: Marcus Fraser says positive mindset is winning formula

Marcus Fraser believes a positive mindset in training is helping to propel Ross County away from the Scottish Premiership relegation zone.

Saturday's 1-0 victory over Partick Thistle was County's fourth in a row and it left St Mirren three points behind in bottom spot.

"We are flying in training throughout the week," said defender Fraser.

"And everyone looks forward to the games on Saturday. We are showing that on the pitch."

Craig Curran scored the only goal 10 minutes before the break at Victoria Park.

Thistle had Kallum Higginbotham dismissed in the second half for a bad foul on Michael Gardyne and are now only four points clear of County and in danger of being dragged into the relegation battle.

But full-back Fraser, who was one of Jim McIntyre's January signings after leaving Celtic, insists the Highland side are only looking up the table.

And the 20-year-old acknowledged the importance of fielding an unchanged side for the past few weeks.

"It makes a big difference," said Fraser. "In every game we are getting to know each other better, which is always a positive.

"It wasn't the prettiest of games, but we ground out the three points in the end - that was the most important thing.

"I'm enjoying it here, it's good - we are looking forward to every game and hopefully we can continue this form."
