Ross County have lifted themselves off the bottom of the table with two incredible home results. In their penultimate game, they registered a crucial 4-0 win over relegation rivals Partick, and in their last game, they managed a credible 1-1 draw against high-flying Hibernian.
Can they keep up their new-found form when they host Motherwell at Victoria Park on Saturday?
Well come into this game on the back of a shock 3-0 win over Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup semi-final. The result ensured their second cup final of the season against Celtic.
In the league, Well are without a win in their last five games. They sit in the seventh spot with 38 points, meaning they have a 12-point advantage on the bottom two sides.
Relegation is not a concern for them anymore, so they might decide to take their foot off the pedal in last few weeks of the league campaign.
Meanwhile, the Staggies sit second-from-bottom with 26 points. Their recent results have helped them move over Partick, but they only have a single-advantage on the bottom side. Ross County are still four points away from safety, so we suspect that they will be desperate to continue their unbeaten run.
Both sides have played each other three times this season. The Staggies have already defeated their opponents at Victoria Park and Well have managed to win both games at their home ground.
