Alloa Athletic vs Ross County Predictions

  • Alloa are unbeaten in their opening two League Cup games (W1, D1).
  • Ross County have already failed to beat lower league opponents in this competition.
  • Alloa are unbeaten in seven of the last nine home H2H encounters.

The Wasps look to sting Ross County

While Alloa Athletic sit two divisions below Ross County in the Scottish footballing pyramid, they have made an admirable start to the League Cup campaign, winning both games albeit one via a penalty shootout.

Notably, Alloa laid waste to Buckie Thistle, a side that their Premiership opponents could not defeat within regulation time (1-1). Alloa boss Brian Rice doesn’t have the most convincing personal record against Ross County (W1, D1, L4), though all of those encounters were with his former club Hamilton Academical.

Playing the percentages

It is safe to say that Ross County should roll Alloa over in this clash, they recorded a top-half finish in the Premiership last term and have begun this League Cup campaign with aplomb, albeit only scraping by Highland League opponents Buckie Thistle.

However the price on an away win is simply not worth the risk, especially when considering that Ross County won’t realistically fancy their chances of winning the trophy and could field an experimental side as the start of the league campaign looms.

We are backing Alloa in the double chance market at a rather attractive price, with a smaller stakes punt going the way of a tight 1-1 draw.
