ROSS COUNTY entertain Aberdeen with a bunch of players on a high after celebrating qualification for Euro 2016 – none are Scots unfortunately.
All the pre-match talk has surrounded the future of Dons boss Derek McInnes after Ladbrokes suspended betting on next Premiership boss to go after taking money on him.
Aberdeen have rubbished the trash Twitter talk that led to the speculation but I wonder how the story will affect the mood in the Dons’ dressing room.
Before the international break the leaders crashed 5-1 at home to St Johnstone and have suffered three defeats in a row.
County have been in decent form but lost at home to Inverness last time out after drawing 3-3 at Dundee with 10 men.
Picking a result isn’t easy but I like both to score at 10-11 with William Hill.
Liam Boyce will be going to France with Northern Ireland and County’s in-form striker is 12-5 at McBookie to score and 7-1 to net the opener.
Find out if Adam Rooney is David Goodwillie is starting before backing a Dons’ first scorer or consider Boyce’s Irish team-mate Niall McGinn to bet at 9-4 with bet365.
Aberdeen are favourites to win at 1-1 with William Hill but difficult to tip after those three defeats. County are 16-5 at Betfred while a draw at 13-5 with McBookie tempts.
Strangely nearly 80 per cent of County’s goals have come in the first half and more of Aberdeen’s strikes have too but it could take players some time to get into their stride again. Ladbrokes make first half 9-4 to be the highest scoring.
