Match Preview: Ross County - Home (26 Sep 2015)

Rate this topic

Dundee host high flying Ross County this weekend in what many would consider a must win game to get some confidence back after the 6-0 shocking defeat at the hands of Celtic. I would expect a few line up changes for this game and hopefully a different attitude from the Manager and Players.

Ross County were formed in 1929 when officials from amateur side Dingwall Victors decided it was time the region was represented in the Highland League. It was agreed Dingwall alone could not support a team so the Vics were disbanded and Ross County FC, took their place.
 
Ross County were Highland League champions on three occasions before joining the SFL: 1966/67, 1990/91 and 1991/92.
 
Ross County joined the Scottish Football League in 1994, along with Inverness Caledonian Thistle, when the set-up was increased from 38 to 40 clubs. County finished third in 1994/95 as Forfar and Montrose were promoted, with Caley Thistle in sixth place. The club’s first SFL goal was scored by Billy Herd in a 2-0 win over Cowdenbeath at Central Park on August 13, 1994.
 
Former England, AC Milan and Rangers striker Mark Hateley had a brief spell at Ross County in September 1999 when the club were in the Second Division but he played only two games - defeats away to Stirling Albion and Alloa.

this has to be a win, playing at home, 3 pts needed, get a bit of confidence back and

play the new signings and get holt back.

I would take a draw from this game to be honest, as the way they are playing and our record against them recently hasn't been great. :(

When we lost in Dingwall the first time last season, their league record going into the game was W0 D0 L7. If I remember right we had Irvine at centre-back and Jim Mac at right back and their winner came with the last kick of the ball.

They then took a point at Dens despite playing 81 minutes with ten men and being a goal down. Clarkson and Tank missed open goals.

After they'd beaten us for a second time in Dingwall their home record was W3 D0 L11, so they took 9 points from a possible 42 points at home and 6 of them came against Dundee.

Taking one point off them last season was a woeful return especially given their terrible form. Hopefully, we'll do better this season.

Playing at home, we must go for this.  Our strength would appear to be in our attacking options so we attack big time.  Let Thomson sit there in front of the defence and let the rest of the midfield and forwards swarm RC

MTD.

Like to see this again on the highlights as I shouted for a pen too.  The ref was right beside it and showed no interest but didn't book Stewart for diving.  He either thought it was a good challenge or didn't want to book Stewart (was this before or after Stewart had been booked?)
