Kilmarnock vs Ross County Prediction

Losses have been mounting for Kilmarnock for the past seven league games in their overall schedule. Their only consolation in between this losing streak was the 6-0 home win against Queen’s Park in the Scottish Cup tournament.

The host had ended their seven-game losing run in the campaign with a 2-1 loss to St. Johnstone on the road in their previous encounter. Out of these seven losses, only two defeats have come at home for the Killies.

Killies have had a better run at home with just two losses in their last ten home matches across all major competitions. Their defeats have come against stronger teams like Celtic and Motherwell. So, Alex Dyer will have faith on his boys to perform well at their own turf.

Ross county, as similar to the host, will need the three points for moving out of the relegation zone as it is still possible in the contest. Hence, each game will be a vital match for both teams especially the Staggies.

Steven Ferguson and his co-manager Stuart Kettlewell will be plotting methods to overcome their away handicap in the clash. Ross County is without a win on the road in major competitions for the previous ten matches in their schedule.

This will take a toll on the morale of the players. Also, they haven’t scored any goals in their last four matches in their overall form. Their previous encounter was also on the road where they were defeated by Rangers with a 2-0 scoreline.

Based on these stats, it is pretty sure that Kilmarnock has better chances of winning the clash in ninety minutes. Hence, it is a safe bet for the punters to go with a draw no bet upon Kilmarnock along with over 1.5 goals in the match.
