Ross County will be looking to bounce back from disappointment in midweek when they lost 2-1 away to Dundee United. The result means they sit tenth (of 12) in the table four points above Dundee in 11th. In Regan Charles-Cook they have the joint highest scorer in the division with nine goals. They do not struggle for goals (they are the fifth highest scorers with 31) but their defence is the second worst in the divison shipping 38 times.
At home, County have been strong recently with three victories, one draw and a defeat to Celtic (2-1). Each of the last four have seen both teams net and in none of their last nine have they failed to net in front of their own fans. Regan Charles-Cook has three in his last three here while Jack Baldwin has two in four. Their home form against the Gers is rough with no victory in the last seven attempts.
Rangers continued their recent good form with a 1-0 success over Livingston in midweek thanks to a Scott Arfield goal. The Glasgow outfit have taken an impressive 31 points from the 33 on offer and sit four points clear at the top. Their defence has been remarkable conceding just once in their last eight. At the other end Alfredo Moreloss has four goals from his last seven appearances.
On the road, the Gers have been impressive going unbeaten in nine and winning eight of these games. Their last road match was a 1-1 draw with Aberdeen on January 18th while their last road defeat came on August 7th at Dundee United. Fashion Sakala is a threat on the road with four from the last five. Five of their last seven away goals have come in the first-half of fixtures.
