Ross County registered an all elusive win in the league last week when they won 4-1 at Dundee, a couple of weeks ago.
Can the Staggies build upon the momentum when they host Hearts at Global Energy Stadium on Saturday afternoon? Despite winning their last game, Ross County are at the bottom of the table with 20 points, four points behind Partick Thistle in tenth.
For the Staggies, the win came after a winless run of 13 games, and four consecutive defeats in the league. They still remain favourites to go down, but the win over Dundee has given a glimmer of hope to Owen Coyle’s side.
Hearts will come into the game on the back of consecutive wins over St Johnstone in Premiership and in Cup.
Coming into this game, Hearts have lost only one of their last 13 games in Premiership, and that solitary defeat was a 3-1 result at Celtic. They currently occupy the fifth spot in the Premiership with 37 points.
Both sides have already each other twice in the league this season. Hearts claimed a 2-1 win at Global Energy Stadium but could only manage a goalless draw at Tynecastle in November.
