Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Ross County and Motherwell go head to head at Global Energy Stadium in the Scotland Premiership round 26. Ross County head into the midweek clash following a heavy 5-0 loss to Rangers, and they are eager to get back on course in national championship. The Staggies, though, have recorded no more than two wins at home in the 2020/21 Premier League season, and we do not believe that they are going to pick up all three points from the match.
The likes of Grivosti, Stewart, and Tremarco are all out of contention with injuries for the hosts. The Well, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Aberdeen. Motherwell did well to hold Rangers to a draw in their penultimate league fixture, which is probably the main reason why we predict that they are going to grab something from the game.
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.
Highlighted Team (Motherwell):
Motherwell are professional football club that compete in the Scotland Premiership. The Steelmen play home games at Fir Park, the stadium which can hold up to 13,677 spectators, wearing amber and claret shirts.
White, on the other hand, is the dominant colour of the club’s away kit. Founded in 1886, Motherwell won their first domestic trophy in the 1931/32 season, leaving Scottish giants Rangers and Celtic behind them in the standings. Speaking of the Scottish Cup, the Steelmen have two titles in the cup competition. In the 1951/52 season, Motherwell defeated Dundee 4-0 in the Scottish Cup final, with the team repeating the success 39 years later as they outplayed Dundee United 4-3 in the title game.
The likes of Hamilton Academical and Airdrieonians are regarded as the club’s bitterest rivals. The games between these clubs are known as the Lanarkshire derby. Hughie Ferguson is leading the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart as he netted 284 goals for the Steelmen in league matches.
