Kilmarnock vs Ross County
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 10 April 2021
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Rugby Park.
Killie are placed 11th in the table – second to last in standings. With just five match-days remaining in the competition, they need to climb to the tenth spot, if they are to avoid going into the relegation playoffs.
Meanwhile, the Staggies are placed tenth in the table – in possession of the final safe position in the Scottish Premiership.
However, they have a lead of just one point over the 11th placed Tommy Wright’s men, and interestingly, these two are locking horns this Saturday.
Thus, two direct competitors are taking on each other for the tenth spot, and it goes without saying that they are under intense pressure.
On top of that, either squad are experiencing problems with their defense, and this same trend can be observed in previous h2h encounters.
Likely, expect a high-scoring thriller this weekend at the Rugby Park.
