Team News: Ross County
Alex Samuel (Surgery) and Ashley Maynard-Brewer (Shoulder Injury) won’t be playing for Ross County gaffer Malky Mackay.
Team News: Dundee United
Dundee United boss Thomas Courts has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Maxime Biamou (Thigh Problems), Ian Harkes (Ankle Injury), Peter Pawlett (Achilles tendon problems) and Tim Akinola (Ankle Surgery) can’t be considered.
In this game, Dundee United will likely create enough chances to find the back of the net against this Ross County outfit, however it possibly won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re tipping a 2-1 winning score for Ross County at the end of the 90 minutes. It really should be an interesting one.
