Ross County have been granted permission to ground share with Inverness Caledonian Thistle should they win promotion to the Scottish Premier League.

The SPL made the decision on Thursday after talks with both Highlands clubs on the proposal to play at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium.

County are 14 points clear of Dundee in the Irn-Bru First Division with just seven matches remaining this season.

There had been concerns that County would be denied the opportunity to enter the top flight as the club's Victoria Park falls short of SPL standards.

However, an SPL statement read: "The SPL board today approved Ross County FC's application to ground share with Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC for season 2012/13, should the club be promoted to the Clydesdale Bank Premier League."
