Ross County’s

summer signing

Oli Shaw

says that his motivation for their Wednesday clash against


is to prove a point to the club that didn’t give him the regular playing time that he expected.

“You need to find something to motivate yourself in football, so that can motivate me, going there and wanting to prove a point and do well,”

the 22-year-old said.

“So I will take that into the game.

“I think I needed a fresh start and I think it’s been good for me up here. Obviously getting that run of games before my injury and getting some goals, the confidence starts to breed.

“The injury was obviously a disappointment, but now I am back in the team and hoping to kick on from there.

“I was on a good run before I got injured, so that’s the frustrating part for me. I want to continue that run now I have got myself back in the team.”

And about facing his old teammates he said:

“I speak to a few of them briefly here and there, “I was there a long time so I have got a few pals there. But when it gets to game time I will be focused on getting the points.

“I came through the youths with Porteous and been at Scotland with him so I know what he’s like. Paul was brilliant with me when I was there. But it’s just another game of football.

“I had good times there, but I am a Ross County player and I will be focusing on trying to get three points and hopefully getting a goal to top it off.”
