At this stage of the season the only thing that matters to Cove Rangers striker Mitch Megginson is winning.

The Aberdeen outfit take on Brora Rangers at Harlaw Park, Inverurie tonight

This is the first of 12 league fixtures John Sheran’s side need to cram in by April 14 as they try to win the title and get into the League Two play-off.

And Megginson believes getting victories is more important than putting on flashy performances as they chase the title.

He said: “At this stage of the season it’s about getting three points – it doesn’t matter how we get them.

“Whether we win 1-0 or 5-0 it doesn’t matter how we do it, you want the three points.

“Brora are a team you need to beat on the way to the title.

“If you want to win it, you have to beat the best teams in the league and we’ll certainly be trying to do that.

“We are going to be busy over the next few weeks.

“But we have a squad that has desire and is focused, and although it’s a busy period we just need to concentrate on one game at a time.

“If we look too far ahead then that’s where we could maybe not play to our best and drop points.

“We’re just focused on Brora, and getting three points in that game is the most important thing.”

With such a hectic schedule ahead of them Megginson knows there will be times when Cove won’t be at their best.

But he believes their ability to grind out results will be vital.

He added: “It’s very important to be able to do that. You’re not going to win every game comfortably or be at your best every week.

“It’s important at times that you can just get together as a team and grind out results.

“We’ve got the players with experience where someone can come up with a bit of magic to win 1-0 or to keep the goals out and help us win the game.

“There is enough experience and quality throughout the squad to win games whether it’s scrappy or comfortable.

“The boys were looking good at training on Monday night. We just need to bring that into the game.”

Elsewhere, Fraserburgh will look to move back into second and keep the pressure on Cove by beating Clachnacuddin at Grant Street Park tonight.
