We were backed superbly during our semi-final win over Celtic; I know all Ross County supporters from across the Highlands and beyond will be keen to be there on March 13, so I’d encourage everyone to buy their tickets early. It should be a superb atmosphere with both sets of fans and the big day can’t come quickly enough.”
