It’s a massive game at the bottom of the Premiership this weekend as Ross County take on Dundee with the hope of moving closer to their relegation rivals.

Ross County Preview – Will bottom club County get a crucial three points to boost survival hopes?

There’s no doubt it’s been a slow burner for Malky McKay since arriving at Ross County in the summer but the signs are they are beginning to find some consistency and results are showing that. County may still be bottom of the table and three points from safety but they have lost just one of their last five in the league – and that came away to Rangers when going down 4-2. Having picked up just three points from their first 10 games it is a definitive upturn in form.

County’s resurgence began with an emphatic 5-0 win away to Dundee which gave them their first three points of the season. They’ve since beaten Hibs before recent draws against Dundee United and St Mirren – regularly showing they are competitive against teams in the middle part of the division.


Our betting prediction
Ross County to win/BTTS
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 7 December)

McKay knows his team will have to continue picking up points against those teams and beat the others who are likely to be involved in the relegation scrap – and that undoubtedly will include tomorrow’s opponents.

Harry Clarke has been a standout for County so far this season and scored in the 5-0 win at Dens Park. He was sent off in the draw with United so missed last weekend’s match but he will almost certainly return to the starting line-up for this one as he looks to pick up where he left off.

Dundee Preview – Can Dundee pick up what would be a rare away win?

Dundee are another team who have shown improvement in recent weeks with three wins in their last five. Like County, their defeats have come where you expect them to pick up little by losing at home to Celtic and away to Rangers. James McPake will not be overly happy with the defending in those losses but he will take heart from the other performances and results.

The Dark Blues have beaten St Mirren away before impressive home wins over Motherwell and St Johnstone. Perhaps more importantly they have kept clean sheets in each of those wins.

That recent good run sees them in 10th place and now five clear of Ross County. Considering that loss at the end of October it’s a decent position they find themselves in and one they will be looking to maintain at the very least.

The only two away games in which Dundee have managed to avoid defeat so far this season have been the win in Paisley and holding third place Hearts to a draw at Tynecastle. They’ve lost the other five with a concession of 14 goals so there is a need to start picking up more points on their travels to see them survive.

Ross County vs Dundee Betting Advice

There’s no question this is a crucial game, particularly for Ross County and their hopes of keeping close to the teams above them and the fact it is a home game. Dundee are in a more comfortable position but know what difference one game can make. They’re also out to avenge that embarrassing defeat from October.

You have to go back to 2017 for the last time there was a home win in this fixture. The last six have all been victories for the visiting team and County know they have to curb that trend otherwise they could be cast adrift.


Key Facts – Ross County vs Dundee Betting Tip

  • Ross County’s only defeat in their last five came at Ibrox in a 4-2 defeat

It is never sensible to base selections on one game but Ross County were so far ahead of Dundee less than two months ago that I’m happy to back them to follow up here. They’ve also been more consistent of late.
