Motherwell vs Ross County match preview

After claiming an unexpected but pivotal victory last weekend, will Ross County’s surge to safety continue?

Last Saturday, Jordan White bagged the first top-flight hat-trick of his career as the Staggies beat fellow-strugglers Dundee United 3-1 at Tannadice.

That actually made it back-to-back wins for Malky Mackay’s men, also beating Livingston 2-0 in Dingwall the week before, despite the fact they’d won just three of their previous 18.

So, Ross County are now off the foot of the table, two points clear of Dundee United and just one adrift Kilmarnock and guaranteed safety.

After this, the Highlanders host St Johnstone on Wednesday, before visiting Killie on the final day.

Thus, their survival prospects are firmly in their own hands, so can Ross County win three successive Premiership games for the first time in 14 months?

After he took charge in February, the Well won five of Kettlewell’s first seven matches at the helm, climbing up the table and away from the bottom two.

The Steelmen have also won both matches since the split, both 2-0, beating Kilmarnock at home and then St Johnstone last time out.

Kevin van Veen breaking the deadlock at McDiarmid Park with a retaken penalty, before Mikael Mandron secured the win in stoppage time.

This saw Motherwell leapfrog Livingston into seventh, on course to finish top of the bottom half.

The Well have won both visits to Dingwall this season, 5-0 and 2-0, although it ended 1-1 when Ross County made the trip to North Lanarkshire in January.

Who will make it three wins on the bounce in this clash at Fir Park?
