Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Motherwell play host to Ross County at their Fir Park in what is expected to be an entertaining Premiership game. The Well aim to make amends for a 3-2 loss to Hibernian, and the bookies see them as favourites to win Saturday’s clash. Both McKinstry and Tierney are pushing for a start after the duo got their names on the scoresheet at the weekend, while all McGinley, Efford, and Mugabi should miss out with injuries.
Meanwhile, the Staggies continue where they left in 2022, with the team failing to find the net in the previous four league fixtures. Since Ross County are low on confidence following a 2-0 loss to Livingston, Motherwell will not have a better chance than this to get back on course in the Scottish top flight. Saturday’s game comes too early for Alex Samuel, while Ben Purrington remains on the sidelines with an ankle issue.
Highlighted Player (Josh Morris):
Josh Morris is a product of Blackburn Rovers football school who plays for Fleetwood Town in the League One. Morris’ main position is left midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both left-back and central midfielder as well.
The English footballer started his senior career at Blackburn Rovers and he played for the likes of Yeovil Town, Rotherham United, Carlisle United and Fleetwood Town on loan before moving to Bradford City in the summer of 2015. Josh Morris, though, found his best form at Scunthorpe United, scoring 35 goals in 107 appearances for the club in the league.
Before the start of the 2018/2019 League One season Morris re-joined Fleetwood Town, signing a two-year contract with the Fishermen. Josh Morris scored his first goal of the season in a 3-1 win over Peterborough United at Weston Homes Stadium. His contract with Fleetwood Town should expire on June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Ross County):
Founded back in 1929, Ross County are professional football club that compete in the Scotland Premier League. The Staggies welcome their rivals at Victoria Park, the stadium which can accommodate up to 6,541 (all-seated) people. Ross County have a bitter rivalry with fellow Highlanders Inverness Caledonian, with the two teams facing each other in Highland derby.
The Staggies recorded their biggest win against St Cuthbert Wanderers (11-0) in the 1993/94 Scottish Cup round 1, whereas their biggest loss came in the third round of the 1961/62 Scottish Cup campaign, with the team suffered a 7-0 defeat to Kilmarnock. Michael Gardyne, who scored 71 goals in 392 appearances for Ross County, is leading the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart.
Ross County have never won the Scottish Premier League trophy, but they did well to make it to the Scottish Cup final in the 2009/10 season. The Staggies were beaten by Dundee United (0-3) in the title game at Hampden Park, Glasgow.
