Ross County Preview – Will County get over midweek disappointment with a big result here?

Malky Mackay would have been bitterly disappointed on Wednesday with his team not taking any points from their visit to Dundee United. Ross County took the lead that evening but were undone with a late goal to consign them to an 11th defeat of the league season. As a result, it leaves County sitting in 10th spot – four clear of Dundee who are directly below them and six ahead of bottom place St Johnstone.

Despite that, there is still work to do for them as they bid to secure a third straight season in the Scottish Premiership. One positive to last weekend’s defeat to Livingston in the Scottish Cup is they can focus all their attention on achieving that objective, now.

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Thursday 27 January )

County returned from the winter break with a 3-1 win at home to Motherwell, made all the more impressive that they were down to 10 men when level at 1-1. It means they have lost just one of their last five at home – that being the result of conceding a last second goal to Celtic in December.

It’s actually just three defeats in 10 league matches now and key to the improved form from earlier in the season has been Regan Charles-Cook. The forward needs one more to reach double figures in the Scottish Premiership. Somewhat remarkable as he never scored a goal last season.

Rangers Preview – Can returning players help Rangers to victory?

Rangers were made to wait for the winning goal against Livingston in midweek but it eventually came courtesy of Scott Arfield who ensured they remain four points clear of Celtic heading into the weekend. Having dropped points away to Aberdeen on their return to action the week prior it was crucial they were able to avoid doing so in consecutive matches.

They had been without several key players for Wednesday’s game for a variety of reasons but will be able to welcome back Joe Aribo and Ryan Kent for this one with recent loan signing Amad Diallo also coming into the squad. Alfredo Morelos remains on international duty with Colombia.

It is still just the one defeat for Rangers this season, that coming away to Dundee United back in August. They have been held to draws on four occasions but with the Glasgow derby to come on Wednesday will be desperate to ensure they maintain at least the current lead at the top of the table.

Cedric Itten started his first game for Rangers in a long time on Wednesday but it could be that Kemar Roofe comes back into contention to start up front having came off the bench in that game.

Ross County vs Rangers United Betting Advice

Ross County have been progressing throughout the season and are competitive in all their games now. Celtic can testify to that, requiring a goal in the sixth minute of added time to take all three points last month. They have been beaten twice by Rangers already in this campaign, both games finishing 4-2 in the Glasgow club’s favour. It highlights how much of a task they have on here but they have not conceded more than two goals in a game since then.

For Rangers, any win will do and they will hope to put pressure on rivals Celtic who play later on tomorrow.
