Derek Adams' Ross County are unbeaten in their first four games in the top flight

Ross County manager Derek Adams praised his players for adapting to the top flight after being named Clydesdale Bank Premier League manager of the month.

The Irn-Bru First Division champions extended their unbeaten league run to 38 games after conceding just one goal in their opening four SPL matches.

That goal, a Kris Commons equaliser for Celtic in the third minute of injury-time, prevents the Dingwall side being top of the table.

County also held Motherwell and Aberdeen to goalless draws and won 1-0 at Dundee. Adams said: "I'm delighted. The players have progressed and adapted to the Premier League.

"They have shown a good organisation and togetherness that's been able to keep this unbeaten run in August and we hope to continue that in September.

"Obviously it's a new league for us and we knew it was going to be difficult.

"It was a difficult start and we were unfortunate not to pick up more points, with the last-minute goal against Celtic."

Adams has been busy with managerial duties on Thursday, allowing Steven Craig to move to Partick Thistle on loan until January 28, which could allow him to add a player to his squad.

"He hasn't been able to push himself into the team so it's probably beneficial for both of us to get some game time at Partick," Adams said.

"We can take in a player and we're still looking at that."
