Team News: Ross County
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the lone fitness concern for the Ross County boss Malky Mackay to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust squad. Jake Vokins (Fatigue fracture) is out of contention.
Team News: St Mirren
With a fully injury-free squad available to choose from, the St Mirren boss Jim Goodwin doesn’t have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match.
In our view, Ross County will need to apply a lot of pressure to score goals against this St Mirren side who we think might be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very competitive game with a 0-1 advantage for St Mirren at the end of this one.
Should be an interesting one.
