“As a group with the staff we need to keep working hard to get through this,” said Hartley
“Hopefully, we are just a win away from ending this run.
“We are certainly trying our best to get that victory.”
Reflecting on the Ross County game the manager said “We had lots of possession and chances but it seems that we are just having one of those spells right now.
“If we make a mistake we are getting severely punished for it.
“We had enough chances to win the game and certainly enough possession.
“We played well at times — there was some very good play.
“But, when you get the chances, you definitely need to make sure you score them.
“There were certain things we didn’t do well.
“We have said to the players that we are bitterly disappointed.
“It was the perfect chance to get the win — but we couldn’t.”
