Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Global Energy Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Ross County and Livingston, the two teams who are almost level on points in the Premiership standings. The Staggies are eyeing their third win of the season and their defensive performance in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Kilmarnock is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Livingston. Midfielder Ben Paton has yet to overcome a knee injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
The Lions, on the other hand, were on the verge of beating St Mirren at home before the international break, but Stav Nachmani’s late goal eventually helped the Saints pick up one point from the match. Ross County and Livingston seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, the share of spoils is on the horizon. Midfielder Cristian Montano is sidelined with a calf problem for the visiting team.
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.
