Jordan White wishes Hamilton would somehow disappear, but knows Ross County’s rivals will arrive in Dingwall once more intent on saving their skin.

White is now turning his attention towards next Wednesday’s crucial Premiership clash with Brian Rice’s bottom-club who kept their own hopes of survival alive, courtesy of Saturday’s 2-1 victory away to St Mirren.

White was the catalyst for County’s colossal 2-0 win over Scottish Cup semi-finalists Dundee United which hauled John Hughes’ men out of the bottom places to ensure their destiny is firmly in their own hands, with just two league games remaining.

Hamilton are first up when they visit the Highlands in nine days’ time before travelling to face Motherwell a few days later.

White, whose textbook 24th minute header was quickly supplemented by Alex Lacovitti’s 28th minute strike to maintain a three-point gap over Accies, is bracing himself for the visit of Rice’s relegation-threatened side who’ve become survival specialists in recent seasons.

“You just want them to go away at times!,” said White.

“But at the end of the day, fair play to them. They keep battling away and they’ve got an unbelievable win against St Mirren. 

“Their tails will be up when they come to Dingwall. Both teams will fancy it and it will be a great game. 

“We know what’s at stake. At the end of the day, you can only concentrate on what you do.

“It’s massive to get up to tenth but it doesn’t matter if you don’t go and back it up next week. 

“Back-to-back to wins have been hard to come by but if we could do that it would be huge. 

“I don’t need to tell you how big a game it is against Hamilton, but everyone will be ready for it.”

White has been a shrewd acquisition since signing for the Highland club back in January, and is fully focused on maintaining their status in the top-flight.

“I’ve got another year regardless of what happens, “ added the 29-year-old.

“I’m looking to stay and keep Ross County up and build on that because there is so much potential around the club.  That’s what attracted me to the club in the first place.

“It didn’t matter what position we were in, we had potential. Hopefully we can stay in the league and have a right good go.

 “Personally, I want to stay in the Premiership. I don’t want to drop back down.

“Everybody is on the same page and wants to stay up and you could see that in our performance against United.

“I try and score as many goals as I can. In the last four games, I knew if I could get one in every game then it would help the team - that’s the aim.”

Meanwhile, United midfielder Calum Butcher believe’s Saturday’s abject display can help motivate Micky Mellon’s side for Saturday’s cup semi-final with Hibs at Hampden.

Butcher said: “We’ve had a very long discussion and it’s got to be put to bed now.

“There’s no better time to have a performance like that to really gear you up towards a big game - sometimes these ones really kick you on.”
