For Kilmarnock, the goals were scored by Kyle Lafferty (38', 45', 56') and George Oakley (87').
It’s not been often in recent times where Kilmarnock haven’t conceded. The facts show that Killie have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 7 goals during that time. That trend won’t necessarily follow through into this game, though.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against Inverness C.T. in Scottish Cup action, Ross County and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
The only player to score from Ross County was Billy McKay (38'). Nikolay Todorov (40'), Daniel Mackay (54') and Shane Sutherland (87') scored for Inverness C.T.
Looking at their form, and Ross County have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 9 goals in all. In defence, The Staggies could really do with shoring things up.

Team News: Kilmarnock
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just a single fitness concern for the Kilmarnock manager Tommy Wright to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust set of players. Greg Kiltie (Shoulder Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Ross County
Ross County boss John Hughes has multiple availability issues to deal with. Callum Morris (Achilles tendon surgery), Connor Randall (Back Injury) and Tom Grivosti (Hamstring Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
In our opinion, Ross County will have to perform well to be putting a goal past this Kilmarnock lineup who will likely win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
That’s why we have predicted a good tussle with a 1-0 victory for Kilmarnock at the end of the match.
There should be little in it.
