Team News: Ross County
Ross County manager Stuart Kettlewell will be thankful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash with a completely injury-free group available to select from.
In our view, The Staggies may well go for a 4-3-3 system this time, utilising Ross Laidlaw, Josh Reid, Coll Donaldson, Alex Iacovitti, Connor Randall, Iain Vigurs, Harry Paton, Jordan Tillson, Lee Erwin, Billy McKay and Ross Cameron Stewart.
Team News: Kilmarnock
Owing to an otherwise available squad, there’s only the sole fitness problem for the Kilmarnock gaffer Alex Dyer to be concerned about. Jake Eastwood (Hamstring Injury) won’t be in action.
It’s our belief that Killie will likely utilise a 4-3-3 formation, going with Daniel Rogers, Ross Millen, Kirk Broadfoot, Stuart Findlay, Calum Waters, Aaron Tshibola, Gary Dicker, Alan Power, Chris Burke, Nicke Kabamba and Rory McKenzie.
We think that Ross County could find themselves up against it to get anything against this Kilmarnock side who we reckon should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a hard-fought 0-1 winning margin for Kilmarnock when the full-time whistle blows.
Hoping for a good game.
