Ross County vs Hibernian Match Analysis & Prediction
31/01/2023 10:45 pm
Hibernian will hope to extend their unbeaten streak in the Scottish Premiership to four matches when they face Ross County at Victoria Park on Tuesday evening.
Although the visitors sit in fifth position in the standings, their hosts are in 11th spot, despite collecting four points from their last two fixtures.
Hibs have recently put together a run of nine defeats in 11 top-flight fixtures, but the Edinburgh-based side has responded with their best period of form since the start of October.
The club’s hierarchy would have parted ways with Lee Johnson if it weren’t for Kevin Nisbet’s performances in games against Motherwell and Dundee United.
However, a ruthless team performance ensured a 6-0 scoreline defeat against Aberdeen on Saturday.
On losing to rivals Hearts in the Scottish Cup, Hibs took advantage of their opponent’s dismal form to give their campaign another kick-start.
Ross County is trying to stay in the Scottish Premier League after losing 13 of their 23 matches this season.
The club has earned five points from their most recent four games, ending a seven-match winless streak on Saturday by easing past relegation rivals Kilmarnock at Victoria Park.
That result represented the second time Ross County had beaten that opponent this year at Victoria Park, and it is currently the difference between the Staggies sitting in 11th rather than being bottom of the table.
Ross County vs. Hibernian Head to head
Both sides have 27 games against each other with hosts taking ten wins while visitors with twelve wins, and five draws.
Ross County Team News
Given their routine win at the weekend, Mackay will likely name an unchanged side for this encounter. The manager was able to rest key men from the 65th minute onwards, so regulars such as Jordan Tillson and David Cancola are likely to remain among the substitutes.

Hibernian Team News
It may be a surprise if Nisbet returns to the team, but it would not be a shock if he replaced Youan down the middle of the attack. Youan may be redeployed on the left flank in place of McGeady, depending on whether Johnson wishes to give the 36-year-old a rest.
