Ross County vs Kilmarnock Prediction
Ross County were able to let out a sigh of relief last week after they took down Hibernian at home with a 2-1 scorecard. The win was their first in ten games and has subsequently brought a three-match losing streak to a halt as well.
At the moment, the hosts are sitting eighth on the ladder, with no more than seventeen points to their name.
On the other hand, Kilmarnock were in for a shocking 3-0 defeat at the hands of Livingston in their last trip on the road. The visitors hardly made an impact in that clash and finished the ninety minutes with just one measly shot on target.
Nevertheless, the away side are still sporting a healthy six-point lead over Ross County as of now. It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have just one win to boast of from their previous five games on home soil.
Taking into account that Ross County have not secured the bragging rights in any of their past two clashes with this foe here either, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Kilmarnock this weekend.
However, the guests have been struggling to pick up a win on the road lately. They have garnered just one point from their previous four outings.
Considering that their last visit to this venue also witnessed both teams sharing the spoils, the safest punt in this one would have to be a double chance.
Furthermore, Kilmarnock have been a nervous bunch in their own defensive third. They have conceded ten goals from their past four away fixtures alone.
Meanwhile, twelve of the seventeen goals for Ross County have come from their clashes at home.
To top it off, four of their past five h2h matchups have witnessed both teams get their names on the scoresheet.
Hence, expect neither side to keep a clean sheet come Saturday.
