Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Ross County play host to Dundee at their Global Energy Stadium on day 18 of the new Scotland Premiership campaign. The Staggies shared the spoils with both Dundee United and Ross County in the previous two league fixtures, with the team extending their unbeaten run to three games. Ross County, though, were more than fortunate not to suffer a loss at St. Mirren as the Saints had no fewer than 27 goal attempts (11 on target).
Defender Alex Iacovitti, who limped off with injury at the weekend, is unlikely to feature in Saturday’s clash. Dundee, on the other hand, failed to spoil Rangers’ party at Ibrox Stadium on Matchday 17. The Dark Blues have already suffered five defeats on the road this season, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Staggies. All Lee Ashcroft, Cillian Sheridan, and Shaun Byrne are injured for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Ross Doohan):
Born in Clydebank, Scotland on March 29, 1998, Ross Doohan is a talented goalkeeper who plays for Ross County on loan from Celtic. Doohan is a product of the Celtic football academy, but he has yet to see a game action with the Hoops in the Premiership.
The 186-cm tall shot-stopper played for the likes of Cumbernauld Colts, Greenock Morton, and Ayr United as well before signing a loan deal with Ross County. Ross Doohan made his Ross County debut in the Premier League in a goalless draw with Hibernian on October 17, 2020.
Speaking of his international career, the Ross County goalkeeper has 11 caps with the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. He made his debut for the U21 team in a 1-1 draw with Togo U21 at the 2018 World Youth Festival in Toulon. His preferred foot is right.
