Derek Adams is pleased with how Ross County have performed so far this season

Manager Derek Adams praised the resilience of his Ross County side after they extended their unbeaten league run to 40 games with a goalless draw at Dundee United.

The Irn-Bru First Division champions have made an impressive start to life in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League, conceding just once in their opening six matches, and that was during a 1-1 draw with title holders Celtic.

"We've had a difficult start to the season and to go unbeaten and move up the league again, we're delighted with the progress we're making," said Adams, whose side last lost 13 months ago at Hamilton. "It's a great record."

Victory for either side at Tannadice would have seen them climb to the top of the SPL - at least until Saturday's fixtures - and United appeared the most likely to succeed only to come up against a stubborn County defence.

County survived a muted penalty appeal after 56 minutes when Ross Tokely challenged Ryan Dow, who later chipped an effort on to the top of the bar.

Adams added: "I thought we dealt well with the pressure Dundee United put us under towards the end of the game. They had a lot of corners and crosses into the box. That was always going to be the case.

"It's another good performance and another point along the way. In the end I think it's a fair result overall."

United boss Peter Houston bemoaned his side's lack of cutting edge but paid tribute to Adams' side for their run.

Houston said: "They're getting draws in the SPL because they're working very, very hard as a team. They're getting behind the ball.

"It's up to us to try to score goals against them. We never managed that tonight. There's a lot of positives to take. What we need to work on now is where we're going to get our goals from."
