GRAEME MURTY was delighted for both of today’s goalscorers Alfredo Morelos and Danny Wilson.
Morelos was a second half substitute and he climbed off the bench to score his ninth goal of the season, his first in ten matches.
The Columbian came on to replace Carlos Pena at the break and Gers gaffer Murty was delighted for his striker and hopes that he can start to go on a goalscoring run.
He said: “I felt that we had to make a change at half time because certain things weren’t working and we were getting overrun a little in the middle of the pitch.
“We weren’t applying enough pressure onto them. Alfredo loves to score goals and he loves to get into the right places.
“He missed one, but kept going and got his goal. Really well done by Daniel (Candeias) in getting the assist. It came from a good press, which we didn’t do particularly well on the day.
“I felt we were too deep overall on the day, but credit to Ross County though. They moved the ball quite well and we allowed them to at times.
“It’s good for Alfredo to get himself back onto the scoresheet and hopefully he can go on another run now.”
Wilson scored his second goal in two games after scoring away to Aberdeen last weekend and Murty is happy to have different types of goal threat as his disposal.
He said: “It’s a good ball in and we said to the players that we have to try to follow in. We weren’t getting enough tap in goals, we’ve been scoring really good goals, but we weren’t getting those really scrappy ones and we managed to get one today.
“I’m really pleased for him and now he’s on a streak! So, fair play and we have people who are a threat like Ross McCrorie and Bruno Alves.
“We’ve also got guys like Eduardo Herrera from the bench and Kenny, Josh and Alfredo.
“We’ve got lots of different types of threat and it’s down to us to find a way to utilise those threats in different situations.”
Ross McCrorie was excellent yet again in a holding midfield role for the Gers, however he will be assessed by the clubs medical staff after he had to come off during the second half owing to a slight injury.
Murty continued: “I’ll have to go and have a look at him, he got a bang in the first half. I thought he was magnificent in the first half at times.
“As a young man, he’s stepping to the fore, which isn’t ideal for us as a management team as we’d like him to be mentored a little, but he’s stepping forward.
“He took a sore one in the first half and we’ll get him wrapped up in cotton wool.”
Attentions now shift to Hibernian on Wednesday at Easter Road and Murty said after the match that the players now need to take the correct rest in order to be at peak condition for the trip to the capital.
He said: “We have to live right, sleep right and recover right. They have to sleep right which can be hard after a game, but more than anything else they have to be professional because we know we have big tests coming up.
“All of the squad is going to be utilised, everyone in that changing room has to be ready to go at their max.”
