Morton Prediction

Morton sit in 5th place and just one point below the play-off pack as they prepare for the visit of high-flying Ross County at their Cappielow Park ground this Friday, and the hosts come into this clash on the back of a 2-1 win away at relegation threatened Partick Thistle.

However, this win ended a run of six league matches without a win as Morton had slumped to defeats against Alloa Athletic, Dunfermline Athletic and Inverness as well as draws with Ayr United, Dundee United and Falkirk.

Morton’s home record stands at an inconsistent looking 3-3-3 14/15 which has worsened in recent times as the hosts are without a win from their last three on home turf which includes defeats to Alloa and Inverness.

The hosts had posted a 2-1 win over Ross County earlier in the season but the fortunes of both clubs have significantly changed since August.

Ross County Prediction

Ross County sit top of the Scottish Championship with a three point cushion over second placed Ayr United and bring a strong six-match unbeaten run into this encounter as the visitors look to avenge their defeat last time out at Morton.

Ross County have recorded recent wins against Dunfermline, Alloa, Partick Thistle and Inverness and with a solid and impressive away record that stands at 4-4-1 18/10 under their belts so far this term, the Dingwall outfit look well placed to add to their points tally here.

The visitors’ only defeat on their travels this season was the aforementioned loss at Morton but Ross County have since put together a seven-match unbeaten sequence which includes three clean sheets.

Midfielder Mullin (6 goals) and forward McKay (12 goals) look the most likely scorers for the visitors with the latter scoring in each of his last three matches.

Betting Tips Verdict

Morton have been inconsistent while Ross County continue to grind out results on a regular basis – I’ll back the visitors with the handicap here.
