He made a vital double save in the early stage of the game and helped his side see out an early attack from Ross County.

Goodwin believed Alnwick played a crucial part in their win.

He said:

“The result was the most important thing, especially after the defeat midweek to Hibs.

“Given the run we’ve been on, it was important we didn’t lose. We’re delighted to win – it was a really difficult game.

“In the opening 15 minutes they had us pegged back in. The conditions weren’t ideal and we just couldn’t seem to get out.

“If it wasn’t for a fantastic double save by Jak Alnwick, we would have fallen behind – and deservedly so if I’m honest. We weathered that storm and I felt we grew into the game.”
