Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Both teams have scored in Ross County’s last eight home games and also in Raith Rovers’ last three matches. Given the visitors have to go for it on Sunday, this game could well feature goals a both ends again.

Draw 2-2

Reason for tip

The danger here is that Ross County lead 2-1 from the first leg at Stark’s Park and do not need to win, but they are clearly capable of scoring multiple goals as they showed on Raith’s artificial surface on Thursday. Rovers missed a great chance to level the tie late on there and, after scoring twice at Partick Thistle recently, have the ability to keep this close in a 2-2 draw.

  • Both teams have scored in Ross County’s last eight home games
  • Both teams have scored in Raith Rovers’ last three matches

Staggies and Rovers set to lock horns again

Ross County remain in the box seat to retain their Premiership status after beating Raith Rovers 2-1 at their place on Thursday, but Sunday’s return clash in Dingwall is no foregone conclusion.

The Staggies seemed to be in full control of the first-leg at Stark’s Park when a penalty from Yan Dhanda and a Jack Baldwin header from Dhanda’s corner put them two goals ahead.

But Rovers refused to lie down and, after Sam Stanton’s close-range finish cut the deficit, they missed a gilt-edged opportunity to level the tie before the final whistle.

Murray’s men are dogged enough to compete

What Ian Murray’s side lacks in ability to compete with the Premiership club, they more than make up for in team spirit and that should mean the Staggies can never relax in this lunchtime clash at Global Energy Stadium.

Don Cowie’s side can be redoubtable performers when they are the underdogs too, such as when they speared Rangers’ title challenge with a 3-2 home win in April.

But the boot is on the other foot now and they are hardly worthy of support at odds-on prices for a game that they do not now need to win as a draw will ensure they beat the drop via the play-offs for a second year running. Both teams to score is the better play here as it has landed in seven of the Staggies’ last eight home games and Raith’s last three overall, including their 2-1 play-off semi win at Partick Thistle.
