Date: 21st October 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Global Energy Stadium (Dingwall).

Only a single point separated the two sides in the bottom half of the Premiership standings last year and they are all tied at seven points each after nine games of the new term and ahead of their H2H encounter in the tenth round.

Ross County

Ross County went on the international break with an improved confidence after the second win of the season (0-2 at Kilmarnock), but they instantly returned to the old habits last weekend when they fell to Hearts at home (1-2).

The creativity in the final third remains the main issue for the hosts who clearly lack a real predator up front having notched no more than eight goals in opening nine fixtures.

Hamilton Academical

The Staggies should really see an improvement on this field on Saturday since Hamilton Academical have the weakest defensive line in the league with 19 goals conceded in nine matches.

The Accies have opened the season in a promising fashion, but they will come into this clash on the back of five consecutive defeats.

Ross County vs Hamilton Academical: Head to head

Five of last six head to head meetings between the two teams saw the BTTS option “come in” and we would not be surprised to see this trend continued given Hamilton’s disastrous form at the back.

Ross County have generally been slightly more successful with 17 wins in 35 matches with the Accies.
