Great win, 4 goals and a clean sheet.  Defensively suspect but clinical finishing won the day! Watt my MOTM.

Definitely a nice change after our strikers' struggles earlier in the season. 3 goals for them from open play and Watt winning the pen.

I wonder how many players might report a short term injury so they don't have to play at Livi next week?

Watching the match recap at the end, Vigurs a tad lucky with just a yellow with his reaction to the pen. Don't think I've seen him run so fast, quite similar to the one we gave away up in Dingwall. Thought Watt put in a tremendous shift, great win.

I think McGinley just needs time, he’s spent more time injured than playing but there are certainly signs he’s not a dud signing.

Early days but we might again be in the position of having 2 good goalkeepers fighting it out,chapman looks like he will be a solid signing,hopefully trevors injury isn't to serious.

You hope you never have to use your backup keeper, but I'm glad we went out and signed one with some decent first team experience.

I said the same after the st johnstone game i think it was,that mcginley was just needing some time to show what he could offer,he played really well today and if we can have a full back that puts crosses in like that one today,then that's always a big plus.

Do we need another one?

Tony Watt on that form is a huge asset to us...a fantastic performance and brilliant work rate. 

 

The benefits of having a left sided full back were there to see as well, McGinley was good and will get better

You have to hope that Tony Watt will make that his regular level of performance now. There's no reason why he can't be a top player in this league.

Cole added a lot. We didn't realise how much he added until he left in December with his link up and physical presence up front. He looked hungry as well.

Lang scoring is a bonus as well and we are probably only a centre back away from having a decent team again.

Top result, and everyone playing their part by the sounds of it. If we win the 2 games (get given the 6 pts) were up to 5th

I have to say that I'm not convinced by McGinley. He is frequently caught on the ball and played a fair few poor passes today. Early days yet, and it has been a very start/ stop season so nobody in the team has had a chance to get any kind of momentum. Jury is out yet.

Not for me...I think he is going to be an excellent addition.

From what Robbo said in his post-match, we might.

Yep I agree.  Was good today but need to see more of that before I am convinced.   Keep up that level Nathan and I will stand corrected

Don't forget he's a central defender.

You surely arent suggesting Robbo has played someone out of position!! Heh he....though to be fair he didnt have much option today

My only  moan about today was that Robbo didnt bring any youngsters on at 4-0 instead  of 2 loanees.  You keep hearing managers say that games too pressure to play the youngsters.  Last 20 mins was perfect opportunity today

I thought this was a very tidy performance, a solid win. Watt was almost captain material today, if only he was able to perform like this consistently he should have this role!
Agree with some earlier posts, I had a bit of a curse at the TV when Hastie was brought on. We were 4-0 up, bringing on some of our own talent would have been the right move rather than who bringing on a Rangers reject who is doing absolutely nothing for us. But still, very satisfied today. I would say though the early stages of the first half were quite frustrating. I felt the Ross County box was quite chaotic, but we got the business done.
