Adams backs County to break Hearts
Manager Derek Adams hopes Ross County can do the Edinburgh double when his side travel to the capital this week.
County claimed a 3-2 win over Hibernian in Dingwall last weekend and are seeking a good result at Tynecastle against beleaguered Hearts tomorrow.
Adams said: "We've been doing well. We've scored goals against a team that were second in the league.
"We're in a positive frame of mind, we've come off an excellent result against Hibernian and we want to go to Tynecastle and win.
"If we do that we go two points ahead of them. That's what we've got to look forward to."
County, promoted to the Clydesdale Bank Premier League last term, began their first season in the top flight well, extending their unbeaten league run to 40 games.
Three successive losses prior to the international break saw the streak end before Hibs were beaten.
Adams watched Hearts, subject of a transfer embargo after two consecutive months of failing to pay wages on time, beat Motherwell last Sunday, but is confident his side are capable of an upset.
He added: "They've got a good side, physical side, but we can go there and cause them trouble. We've got to deal with their threats as well."
Former Dundee United defender Mihael Kovacevic made his full debut in the defeat of Hibs along with 19-year-old attacker Steven Ross and both could feature again at Tynecastle.
Ross was informed of his selection an hour before the game and afterwards was praised for his performance by Adams.
He is eager for another opportunity.
"Hopefully there are more chances to come," Ross said.
"I've been here since age 12 and used to come in on Saturdays to watch the home games.
"There are a lot of experienced players and good players in the squad. They look after you and keep you right, giving you information all the time and telling you what to do and where to be on the park.
"It's shown all the younger boys that there's always a chance there if you're performing."
