Derek Adams delighted as Ross County gain another point on the road

Derek Adams is content Ross County are doing what’s necessary to secure another season in the Scottish Premier League.

The First Division champions picked up their seventh point on the road this season with a 1-1 draw at St Johnstone on Saturday.

Adams’ side have nine points from their home games also so far in the 2012/13 campaign and the manager believes they are finding the right balance.

"I thought it was a physical game and difficult for both sides," said Adams. "We didn't really see a lot of football played, but it was a good point for both sides.

"If we can pick up points and the odd win away, and do well at home, then we'll do fine this season. We've had an excellent start and 16 points is an excellent total from the number of games we've played."

Dave Mackay put St Johnstone ahead at McDiarmid Park, but the hosts were to pass up a number of chances before Liam Craig turned Iain Vigurs’ shot into his own net for the equaliser.

Adams added: "Our goal was quick thinking from Richard Brittain, who played a good ball inside for Iain Vigurs.

"St Johnstone could have gone on to win and probably didn't get a break; we had chances at 1-1 to score, but overall I didn't think any team deserved to win."
