History of the Queen of the South v Ross County fixture

Queen o.t.S. prepare to entertain Ross County at Palmerston Park on Saturday afternoon, and hold the advantage on previous meetings between the two. Of the 8 games played, The Doonhamers have recorded 4 wins, and Ross County have come away with 3 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Palmerston Park was less than a year ago, in December 2004, the The Doonhamers carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Scottish Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Queen of the South's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While The Doonhamers have scored 5, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Ross County's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The County's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 8 goals for and 7 against.

Queen o.t.S. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 8 points from 15 matches. Ross County are just outside the promotion places, in 2nd, having taken 29 points from 15 games.
