Home Ross County

07/04/2018 Kick Off:  3:00 pm Victoria Park V Predicted Score:2 - 3

Away Hibernian

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

McGinn. The seven-cap international provides the stardust in Lennon’s side and is 41/10 to net anytime.

2 We fancy:

Goals. Ross County and Hibs struck a combined seven times in their respective midweek fixtures and over 2.5 goals after the break is 4/5. Another attractive pick are both teams to score predictions at 4/6, and this should comfortably be fulfilled.

3 It's a long shot, but…

A 3-1 Ross County triumph is 40/1 in the football score predictions market and would give the Staggies back-to-back wins for the first time this campaign.

Team News

Ross County's Last Six:

Won: 1 Drawn: 2 Lost: 3

This Scottish Premiership preview begins with the 11th-placed hosts. After Owen Coyle’s departure last month, under-20 coach Stuart Kettlewell was promoted to the first team dugout alongside Steve Ferguson and the duo have instilled fresh belief in the camp.

The co-managers will be without captain Andrew Davies after the defender’s dismissal against champions Celtic last weekend. The 33-year-old journeyman serves the second of a two-match ban and came under intense scrutiny for his challenge on Bhoys midfielder Scott Brown. Max Melbourne is likely to deputise.

Hibernian's Last Six:

Won: 4 Drawn: 2 Lost: 0

First choice keeper Ofir Marciano is back between the sticks after serving a one-match suspension and his return is enforced after deputy Cammy Bell picked up a calf knock.

Star midfielder John McGinn will also return to the line-up after accumulating 12 yellow cards this term. The talented Scot missed the matches with Partick Thistle and Hamilton as a result.

Ross County vs Hibernian Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Ross County are looking for their second Scottish Premiership win inside a week when they host Hibernian at Victoria Park on Saturday

The Staggies recently recorded their first league success in over two months in the basement showdown with Partick Thistle. More importantly, the priceless victory saw County move off the bottom of the table and dented their closest competitor’s hopes in the process. The unlikely 4-0 scoreline gave the Dingwall club a timely boost in their battle to beat the drop and their goal difference has also benefited.

Visitors Hibs have been in good shape for the bulk of the campaign and boss Neil Lennon is buoyed by his squad’s growth. The former Hoops tactician admitted his side are ahead of schedule and Rangers are firmly in the sights of the Edinburgh outfit.

Football predictions for this encounter show Ross County at 3/1 to earn a valuable victory and a follow up to Tuesday’s accomplished performance would put pressure on Dundee. The incentive is there and two or three positive results could pull the hosts away from the danger zone.

Further Scottish Premiership predictions for this vital duel at both ends of the table display Hibernian at 17/20, and an away day success is the expected outcome. The travelling party have picked up seven victories on the road and fare just as well away from Easter Road.

The tie is 12/5 and with second spot up for grabs, a draw is unlikely to please the Ulsterman. Expect Lennon to push his side to take the spoils and continue their march up the standings.

Hat-trick hero against Partick, Schalk, is 9/2 to register first in this Scottish Premiership preview. The Dutch forward has been a bright point in an underwhelming year and will have his suitors if the Staggies fail to stay up. Schalk has a highly impressive 11-goal haul and is a popular choice in the latest football betting predictions offering.

Florian Kamberi is 8/1 in the same market and also struck a treble in his last showing for Hibs. The 23-year-old has six goals from just eight appearances since moving to the club on loan in January, and it promises to be a fascinating watch with two in-form attackers on show.

Predicted Score: Ross County 2 - 3 Hibernian
