Ross County will hope for a more comfortable result and performance when hosting Kilmarnock on Wednesday evening. After grinding out successive one-goal victories to start the new Scottish Premiership season with maximum points, Stuart Kettlewell's targeting continuity.

His side finished six points above the relegation zone and it's imperative they continue their encouraging early form. Kilmarnock meanwhile, will be motivated to win here after earning a respectable draw against league champions Celtic on Sunday.

Ross County vs Kilmarnock Betting Tips

Ross Stewart's penalty strike and more recently, a hectic Billy McKay finish have propelled Ross County into third place. It's certainly still early days as far as judging the league standings are concerned, but the Staggies mean business.

The pair were among their best performers last time out against Hamilton Academical, who found themselves overwhelmed by clear-cut chances and duels for possession. Liverpool academy graduate Connor Randall was particularly busy defensively while goalkeeper Ross Laidlaw worked hard to earn consecutive clean sheets.

Kettlewell will urge his team not to rest on their laurels though and rightly so. They entertain a Kilmarnock side whose last victory came in mid-February and naturally want to end that statistic in midweek.

They somehow stifled Celtic enough to draw 1-1 with them on Sunday afternoon, despite conceding 17 shots and 70% possession over the 90 minutes. Chris Burke has scored both their goals across the two matchday fixtures (2-1 loss to Hibernian, Celtic).

The 36-year-old's leading by example in a side lacking potency going forward, despite promising signs from Nicke Kamamba this month. It's likely that winger Rory McKenzie will be dropped after a lacklustre showing, with Greg Kiltie and Danny Whitehall favourites to start ahead of him.

Ross County vs Kilmarnock Correct Score Predictions

Wednesday's hosts are in good form, boast a much better H2H record – ten wins from 17 meetings – and I'm backing them to prevail in a tightly-contested clash here.
