History of the Ross County v Queen of the South fixture

Queen o.t.S. face a trip to Ross County at Victoria Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The The Doonhamers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 10 and win only 4 of the 18 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2010, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Scottish Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Ross County have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. The County's have scored 9 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Queen o.t.S.'s away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the The Doonhamers have hit 6 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Ross County are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 9 points from 10 matches. Queen o.t.S.'s 13 points from 10 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.

Queens Mad Predition...

Queens make the long trek to Dingwall with the good news that Homes may well be back and could partner trialist McMenamin up front. The Doonhamers will need to get back to their winning ways after the capitulation against Falkirk last week.

Dingwall however is not an easy ground to pick up points and I think the best Queens can do is pick up a point.
