FEW clubs get relegated to the Scottish Championship then make an immediate return to the Premiership but Ross County look as if they’ll be doing exactly that.
Falkirk v Ross County (7.45pm)
You could use a number of words to describe Falkirk’s season – “shambles” is as good as any. The Bairns have been shocking and things haven’t got any better since new boss Ray McKinnon took charge after moving from Morton.
They sit bottom of the league with just three points and are already a huge 20 points behind today’s opponents Ross County.
They have have failed to score in seven of their last nine and have failed to score in any of their last five home game which is criminal at any level.
Ross County on the other hand are flying and already look as if they will be making a swift return to the top flight.
With just one defeat in the league this season they come into this off the back of five straight wins and a 5-0 demolition of Morton on Saturday.
Striker Billy McKay loves the Highlands – he scored 60 goals during his spell at rivals Inverness and has already hit the ground running at County with eight goals to his name.
County are flying and scoring goals and you have to fancy them here. The Championship is a difficult place to predict match outcomes – this is top v bottom and County should cruise this but it’s a funny league and I think goals is the value bet.
The visiitorsd are as short as 4-9 to win but should net at least twice here and Falkirk surely can’t go a sixth consecutive home games without scoring – can they? Decent odds for goals here.
- Over 2.5 match goals
