Motherwell vs Ross County
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Fir Park (Motherwell).
After admitting back to back defeats midway in their campaign, Motherwell have returned to winning ways and are currently on a very impressive three-match winning streak.
The hosts pulled off an exciting win in their five-goal thriller alongside Hearts on the road, with the final scores reading 3-2 in their favor. At home, the squad slotted three unanswered goals into the back of the net against the hapless Hibernian.
On the other hand, Ross County ended a four-match winless run the other week when they managed to get the better of St Mirren at home by a 2-1 scorecard. However, it was too close a game to call as the visitors found the winning goal in the dying minutes of stoppage time.
With a trip on the road beckoning this week, Ross County’s chances of recording a successive victory are certainly looking bleak.
Motherwell vs Ross County Head to head (h2h)
- Four of the last ten meetings have seen Motherwell register the win.

- Their previous fixture ended in narrow 2-1 win for Ross County.
- Only one of their last ten clashes have finished in a stalemate.
Motherwell vs Ross County Prediction
The home team have turned things around in style and are on a very convincing run at the moment. Also, Steve Robinson’s men have tasted defeat just twice in their last five games on home soil, that too across multiple competitions.
Their foes for the weekend have been deprived of a win in their last three outings. Their previous trip on the road alone saw them concede three goals to which they failed to reply with even one of their own.
Considering that seven of their last twelve visits this stadium have also seen Ross County at the losing end, Motherwell are the front runners to pick up the three points.
Furthermore, half of their previous six head to head fixtures here have been high scoring ones with over 2.5 goals on the charts. Taking into account that five of the eleven goals so far for the hosts have also come from their matchups at home, expect the hosts to rack up the goals tally without fail in this one.
