Kilmarnock vs Ross County
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Rugby Park (Kilmarnock).
Ross County is struggling to keep its spot in the Premiership safe. They received promotion to the top division, and after a run of three winless fixtures, the team bounced back with two back-to-back wins.
This match-day though, the squad will be presented with a tougher challenge, taking into account their form on the road, and the stature of the hosts.
Kilmarnock had finished third in league standings last campaign, and just below the two best squads in Scotland – Rangers, and Celtic.
With the home advantage too in favor of Killie, the guests surely have a mountain to climb this weekend.

Kilmarnock vs Ross County Prediction
The Staggies lost three of their previous five fixtures and was winless in four of the last six. On the road, they lost two of the former three and remained winless in three of the former four as well. On the contrary, the hosts of the day had finished in the podium last campaign, and at present is on a three-game unbeaten run at home.
In addition, very recent h2h clashes have been in favor of the Killie and coupled to their home advantage, we should witness a home victory.
Coming to goals though, the guests have always given nightmares to Alessio’s backline. In fact, Ross County scored twice or more in 13 of the previous 14 fixtures, and in nine of the previous ten at this venue.
Taking these stats into account, rely on either squad to find the back of the net.
