While the hosts are currently sitting in 11th place in the league standings, their opponents are 31 points better off in third place.

While not mathematically impossible, it is virtually guaranteed that Ross County will be taking part in the relegation round when the league splits during the second phase of the season as they sit 12 points behind sixth-placed Dundee, with just four matches remaining in the first phase of the campaign.

With the points carrying over from the first phase into the second of the season, Don Cowie’s side will still be out for victory as they look to avoid placing in the bottom two for the second successive campaign.

Ross County have managed just five victories from the 29 matches they have played so far, resulting in two managers being sacked prior to Cowie taking charge halfway through February.

Cowie has so far struggled to get his side top puck up results as they have managed just five points from the last 18 available to them, leaving them stuck as the 11th-placed side in the division.

Meanwhile, Hearts started the season rather poorly under the newly-appointed Frankie McAvoy as the former Preston North End manager led them to one win their opening four league matches before ultimately being sacked with his side on a four-game losing run.

Steven Naismith took charge of the club midway through September, and the Jambos have never looked back, losing just seven and winning 20 of the 30 matches that the former Scottish international has been in charge of.

Hearts have guaranteed themselves a third-placed finish in the first phase of this season, boasting a 13-point lead over fourth-placed St Mirren with just four matches remaining, while they are also unable to move above Celtic as they trail the Hoops by 13 points.

Ross County vs. Hearts Head to head

In the 28 previous meetings between these two teams, Ross County have claimed two victories while Hearts have won 12, and they have drawn in 14. Hearts have scored 46 goals and conceded 27 in the process.
