Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Global Energy Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Ross County and St. Mirren, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Staggies aim to put an end to their three-game winless run and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach this time out. All Josh Reid, Josh Sims, and Ben Paton are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Saints, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 3-0 loss to Rangers, but it has to be noted that they were beaten by Ross County in the previous two meetings between the two teams at Global Energy Stadium. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards at Global Energy Stadium and we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. St. Mirren midfielder Ryan Strain is banned for the match, while Jonah Ayunga misses out with an ACL injury.
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.
