The hosts leapfrogged St Johnstone in the fight for survival with a win over Hibernian last time out, while their visitors remained seven points better off by beating Livingston.

In what has certainly been a tough campaign on the whole in the Premiership, Ross County finished the first phase in the relegation playoff spot in 11th position on 30 points from 33 games, just one adrift of automatic safety through a surprise 3-2 victory over Rangers in the final round of matches before the division’s split.

That saw them head into the second phase with 10th-placed St Johnstone in their sights in the fight for survival, but they began the final five-game run in disappointing fashion, travelling to bottom side Livingston and suffering a 2-0 defeat.

Remaining a point off 10th position with four games remaining, Ross County – under the temporary stewardship of Don Cowie since Derek Adams’ February departure – most recently faced a tough test at home to Hibernian last Saturday, but they prevailed in a crucial 2-1 win in Dingwall, coming from behind as Simon Murray equalised the scored in the first half before Jordan White netted the decisive goal in the 88th minute.

Such a result saw the Staggies move ahead of St Johnstone and into 10th place with three league matches remaining, but with just a two-point lead over the relegation playoff spot, their work is certainly far from over and Ross County will be desperate to extend their cushion with a second straight win on Saturday.

In their way stand a Motherwell side who will also go in search of back-to-back victories after making a return to winning ways of their own at the weekend.

Despite a pleasing end to the first phase of the Scottish Premiership season, securing a 3-2 win away at Dundee between draws with St Mirren and Hibernian, Motherwell had to settle for an eighth-placed finish after 33 matches, ending four points behind sixth place and being confined to the relegation group as a result.

Aiming to end on a high and top that lower group, Motherwell were unable to make a winning start to the second phase, as they travelled to Aberdeen and suffered a 1-0 defeat, but they succeeded in bouncing back last time out.

Strugglers Livingston visited Fir park at the weekend and the Well dished out a resounding 4-1 beating, going four goals ahead through Sam Nicholson and Dan Casey and a Theo Bair brace before Joel Nouble netted a consolation for their visitors 13 minutes from time.

Now sitting third in the relegation group with a seven-point advantage over their hosts and one and two-point gaps up to Aberdeen and Hibernian respectively with three games remaining, Stuart Kettlewell’s side will set out to build on last week’s win and make it two on the bounce to strengthen their claim for seventh position in the Premiership.
