Ross County vs Hamilton
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 14 March 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Global Energy Stadium (Dingwall)
Hamilton Accies will be hoping to extend their unbeaten run to five games when they take on Ross County on Saturday.
Ross County continue to struggle as they slipped to their second consecutive Premiership defeat, sixth in the last nine league matches. This time around, the Staggies fell to a narrow loss to second-placed Rangers at home.
The Dingwall-based club are sitting eight in recent form table and ninth overall with two points ahead of their next opponent. The hosts have a favourable pre-split schedule coming up and further slip-ups could prove costly.
Stuart Kettlewell and Steve Ferguson’s side have earned 62 percent of their points at home, winning five, drawing three and losing six matches, scoring 1.21 and allowing 1.65 goals per match on average.
Brian Rice’s men are coming off of back-to-back wins for the first time this season. After shocking Steven Gerrard’s Rangers at Ibrox, Hamilton secured a 1-0 victory over Kilmarnock to extend their clean sheet streak to three games and unbeaten run to four.
They will be looking to build on the Kilie win when they take on fellow struggles, Ross County, this Saturday.
The Accies have posted two wins, six draws and six defeats away from Fountain of Youth Stadium, averaging a goal scored per match, whilst conceding 1.71 in return. They have racked up eight points from their last five away fixtures.

Ross County vs Hamilton: Prediction
The visitors are in better shape at the moment, but I can’t ignore Staggies’ record at the Global Energy Stadium and it would be no surprise if they cancel each other out in a tight, nervy affair. I’m going with a Draw here.
Lastly, with a 1-1 scoreline hunch, I’ll pick Under 2.5 goals. Hamilton’s defensive record of late is fantastic and less than three goals have been scored in five of the last six Ross County’s home games in the Premiership.
