Kilmarnock – Ross County preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Kilmarnock vs Ross County lineups.

Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock suffered their first defeat of the season last weekend. They were edged 1-2 on their visit to Motherwell. This was somewhat expected though as Killie put in a monumental effort just a few days earlier to eliminate giants Celtic from the League Cup with an inspiring 1-0 win. 

Killie also earned 4 points from their first 2 matches in the league. They have been near-perfect in their last 5 home games vs Ross too (W4 D1). 

Killie also kept 3 clean sheets in their last 4 matches so scoring against them is notoriously hard this season. Two of those clean sheets were in wins against Scottish giants Rangers and Celtic. 

There are no serious injury issues in the squad. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Dennis (GK), Mayo, Deas, Findlay, Armstrong, Lyons, Watson, Magnennis, Ndaba, Watkins & Kennedy

Ross County

Ross County started their new season with 2 defeats in 3 rounds. However, those defeats were against the giants Rangers and Celtic so the Stags can’t be judged too harshly. 

Last weekend struggled at home vs Rangers and deservedly lost 0-2. 

In all games so far Ross had problems controlling the ball. This can be explained by the fact that 2 of their most creative midfielders Callachan and Patton remain sidelined. Dhanda also threatens to miss as he is dealing with a minor injury right now and sat out the last 2 games. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Laidlaw (GK), Brown, Baldwin, Leak, Harmon, Turner, Randall, Loturi, Sims, White & Murray

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

​Player to Watch: Marley Watkins

Experienced striker Marley Watkins has started his career as a Kilmarnock player in impressive style. Watkins scored in the last 2 matches. He scored the winner in the recent 1-0 triumph vs Celtic. 

We can see Watkins continuing his hot streak in the coming game as right now he plays with great confidence and over the last 5 Killie matches Watkins has taken 73% of the entire team’s shot attempts.
