Staggies have to improve goal return if they want to win says Kettlewell






Ross County co-interim manager Stuart Kettlewell believes the Staggies must improve their goal return if they are to stand any chance of beating the drop.
The Dingwall side have, alongside Hamilton Accies, conceded the joint-highest number of goals in the Scottish Premiership this season, while only St Johnstone and Partick Thistle have scored fewer times.
Kettlewell is hoping to change that record and feels the club must take a positive approach if they want to get themselves off the bottom of the league.
The 33-year-old, who has been handed the reins at Victoria Park until the end of the season alongside academy director Steven Ferguson, said: ?With the position we find ourselves in, we need to win games.
?We need to find a formula of getting goals, creating chances from several different areas and that?s the bit we?ve been tasked with.
?We?ve had conversations about that and we?ve had training sessions geared towards that.?
County trail second-bottom Partick Thistle by three points and are five points behind 10th placed Accies.
While Kettlewell acknowledges there?s no getting away from the fact the Staggies have only won four matches from their last 22, he believes there?s more than enough quality in the squad to see them climb the table.
He said: ?If you went round the country and asked other clubs about our team I?m sure they?d say we?ve got talented players in all areas of the pitch.
?We?ve got a good group of players here, I genuinely believe that.? The Staggies snapped a long winless run with a thumping win at Dundee last month and followed it up with a spirited draw with Hearts, having looked like they had finally turned a corner.
But a dismal 2-0 defeat against struggling St Johnstone proved to be the final straw for Owen Coyle, who quit on March 1.
County defender Jason Naismith recently said the players felt ?embarrassed? that they were on to their third and fourth managers of the season.
Kettlewell is hoping they can use that feeling as motivation but has told his players they need to choose the right moments to show aggression.
Ahead of today?s trip to Kilmarnock, he said: ?We know that aggression will be a big aspect of the game but we are massive believers in needing calm heads and composure in the right situations.
?Both offensively and defensively, you need to show that calmness.
?It doesn?t matter if it?s a scrappy game or whether it?s a proper football match, the team that shows that level of composure in the difficult situation is the one that comes out on top.
?We need to transmit that message to the players.?
Killie manager Steve Clarke goes into today?s game without winger Jordan Jones.
Jones ? who was man of the match in the midweek win against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park ? sustained a hamstring injury against Saints.
The winger is also a huge doubt for the home Scottish Cup quarter-final replay against Aberdeen on Tuesday night.
