Dundee FC vs Ross County Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Dundee were able to claim a comeback 2-1 victory over Hamilton. Even though Mark O’Hara had provided the home team with a lead following his own goal after two minutes, Dundee capitalised fully on the sending-off for David Templeton in the 74th minute. Late goals from Matthew Henvey and AJ Leitch-Smith were able to claim a win for Neil McCann’s team. Ross County had to go through a fifth consecutive defeat in all competitions after being thrashed 4-2 by Aberdeen. A brace from Adam Rooney and Kenny McLean put Aberdeen in a very strong position. Late goals from Alex Schalk did provide some respite for Ross County.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The recent form for Dundee has been quite good and the team also were able to set up a fifth round FA Cup game against Motherwell. Meanwhile, Ross County have been quite poor with five consecutive losses. Owen Coyle’s men are also without a victory for the last couple of months. Ross County’s confidence has hit rock bottom and Dundee have the potential to take advantage. I would choose a home win in this game.

The scoring form of Dundee has been quite surprising. The team has come up with eight goals in their last six games. Crucially, they are up against a Ross County outfit that has conceded at more than two goals per game on an average. I would choose Dundee to score over 1.5 goals.

Dundee win – 23/20

Dundee FC Preview

Dundee have been able to keep the points table moving along well, as the club keep themselves in a position where they could potentially jump into the top six of the table with a sudden spring in results. Dundee have managed only seven victories this season, but they have also suffered just two defeats in the last six games. As a result, Motherwell are only three points ahead in the top six places. Dundee need to vastly focus on improving the scoring record with the team only netting eight goals in the last six games. AJ Leitch-Smith leads the scoring charts at Dundee with six in 18.

Dundee FC Team News

Dundee manager Neil McCann only has Marcus Haber (knee) and Craig Wighton (cruciate ligament) unavailable to the injuries.

Ross County Preview

The recent form for Ross County has been diving so badly that the team are starting to get cut off from the rest of the table. Owen Coyle has seen his team rooted to the bottom of the SPL 2017-18 table. So far, the club had positivity about being able to avoid the drop. Now, the likes of Hamilton and Partick Thistle are starting to pull clear. It is no surprise that Ross County find themselves at the bottom of the table, as this team happens to like almost every facet at this moment. Ross County have conceded 44 goals in the 25 games – more than any other team in the division. Meanwhile, Craig Curran and Alex Schalk are the top scorers with five goals each.

Ross County Team News

Ross County manager Owen Coyle does not have injury or suspension worries coming into this match.
