Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Global Energy Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Ross County and Kilmarnock, the two teams who were beaten by St Johnstone and Hibernian in their last league matches. The Staggies suffered yet another dip in form and given their poor home record in the 2023/2024 Premiership campaign, we are not tempted to put our money on the home side. Defender James Brown is back from suspension, while midfielder Ben Paton remains on the sidelines with a knee injury.
The Killie, on the other hand, are eager to stay in the Championship Group berth and we predict that they will take advantage of Ross County’s poor form in November. Forward Matthew Kennedy is widely expected to return to the starting XI, while both Corrie Ndaba and Kyle Magennis are out of contention with injuries. In their last meeting in the Premier League Ross County defeated Kilmarnock 1-0, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge.
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.
