Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Hibernian quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Rangers, with the team rolling over BSC Glasgow 4-1 in the FA Cup last 16. The Hibs regained a much-needed confidence, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure a top-six finish. Hibernian take on Ross County at their Easter Road Stadium on Wednesday evening, and a man to watch in the home team will be January signing Marc McNulty, who scored a hat-trick against BSC Glasgow.
Ross County, on the other hand, were not in action at the weekend. The Staggies recorded a 2-0 win over Livingston at home in their last league match, but given their poor away record in the Premiership, we are tempted to put our money on the in-form Hibs this time out. When the two teams met at Global Energy Stadium in December, Ross County defeated Hibernian 2-1, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Fraser):
Marcus Fraser is a Scottish footballer who plays for Ross County as a defender. Fraser is a product of Celtic football school, but he made no more than one appearance for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League. He played his only game for the Scottish giants in a 3-1 win at Inverness on February 9, 2013.

Speaking of his international career, Fraser has five caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. His main position on the field is a right-back, but he is capable of producing good performances as a centre-back as well. Marcus Fraser was born in Bishopbriggs, Scotland, on June 23, 1994.
