Rangers vs Ross County Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Rangers interim coach Graeme Murty was able to oversee a second consecutive win, as Rangers beat Aberdeen 2-1 at the Pittodrie Stadium. Daniel Wilson provided the early advantage for Rangers in the 14th minute, while Josh Windass doubled their advantage with a counter-attack in the 63rd minute. Incidentally, this goal came a few minutes after Ryan Jack’s red card. Even though Francis Ross came up with a brilliant free kick two minutes after Windass’ goal, it only proves to be a consolation. Ross County’s poor form led to a surprise 2-0 home defeat against Dundee. An early goal from Mark O’Hara and a late effort from Fayssal El Bakhtaoui led to a comfortable win for the away team. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The surge of form experienced under Graeme Murty bodes well for Rangers, who are up against a struggling Ross County. The struggles for Owen Coyle’s team have largely been down to a lack of goals. Rangers have kept two clean sheets in the last three matches at the Ibrox stadium. Even though the head-to-head record between these two teams points out to goals from both ends, I would back a Rangers clean sheet based on recent form. Rangers have been scoring at a decent pace with nine goals in the last five league matches. Ross County’s defence, though, has been much better than their attack with three clean sheets in the last four away matches. They have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals in the last five league matches. A better bet would be to back Rangers to score under 2.5 goals.

Rangers Preview

Despite the search for a new manager, interim boss Graeme Murty has made a strong case for a permanent appointment after back-to-back victories over Aberdeen. These results have helped Rangers make up several places in the SPL 2017-18 table. The club are now up to second in the standings, with a seven-point deficit to Celtic. Even though the possibility of coming up as title challengers for Brendan Rodgers’ outfit is unlikely, Rangers will now hope to use their momentum to build a sizeable advantage over the chasing pack. Alfredo Morelos remains the top scorer at the club with six goals in 14.

Rangers Team News

Lee Wallace (groin), Bruno Alves (knock), and Graham Dorrans (malleolar) are the players unavailable for interim boss Graeme Murty.

Ross County Preview

Owen Coyle brought about a substantial improvement in results immediately upon his arrival, but it appears that the effervescence is starting to die down at the club. Ross County have managed only one win in the last five league matches. As a result, they are sliding down the table into the 11th position – just a couple of points above bottom club Partick Thistle. Ross County have been unable to score in the last three league matches, and they did not come close to scoring against Dundee either. It is no surprise that midfielder Michael Gardyne is the leading scorer, and he has only three goals in 16 games.

Ross County Team News

Owen Coyle will be without Scott Fox (hamstring) due to injury.
