The home side created most of the chances but struggled to break down Braunschweigs resilient defence, resulting in the Bundesligas 1,000th scoreless draw. . Robinson finished with 17 points, all but two in the second half, and Lawson had 14 after halftime and finished with a game-high 11 assists as the Nuggets handed Dallas its first home loss in eight games this season. J.J. Hickson led Denver with 22, and Kenneth Faried added 10 points and 10 rebounds.Ross County boss Jim McIntyre and chairman Roy MacGregor are confident they can help change attitudes after their League Cup triumph on Sunday. County beat Championship side Hibernian 2-1 in a thrilling Hampden final, which was won by a goal in the 90th minute from Alex Schalk.The clubs first major trophy in their 87-year history has come 10 months after rivals Inverness CT claimed their biggest success when they won last seasons Scottish Cup. Both clubs left the Highland League in 1994 to join the Scottish Football League, and they have now become settled top-flight clubs. Ross County boss Jim McIntyre, skipper Andrew Davies and Roy MacGregor (R) County are currently fourth in the table, while Inverness, who are hoping to retain the Scottish Cup this season, have regularly been finishing in the top six in recent years.And McIntyre reckons both Highland teams are now well respected throughout Scottish football.McIntyre said: You know if somebody was to say 10 or 15 years ago that both clubs would be in the Premiership and you would both be holders of different cups at the same time, you would have got laughed out the door.A lot of players used to always look up at the clubs in the Highlands and say, dont fancy going up there. Cheap Football Jerseys. I think its different now. Ross County clinch victory over Hibernian as Alex Schalk (R) scores Sundays success comes six years after the team reached the Scottish Cup final, when they were beaten by Dundee United.But MacGregor hopes County can continue to improve their standing by meeting achievable goals.Well its difficult to better winning a cup, but we set ourselves the goal of being a top six club this year and getting to a semi-final, so weve gone one better as far as the cup competition, MacGregor said.Were still fourth in the league, four games to go before the split, so we need to stay there and we need to achieve a top six place and I think that will be success for us.Its just a progression of where the club has come from, getting into the league just over 20 years ago to finally go to Hampden and come back with a bit of silverware.
