Ross County host Hibs almost 4 weeks since the Easter Road side knocked them out of the William Hill Scottish Cup at the Global Energy Stadium.

The Dingwall side have a full squad available to manager Derek Adams as Steven Saunders and Marc Klok are both free from injury.

Adams said: “We have slipped down to second bottom however a couple of wins can change everything. St Mirren and Kilmarnock are both heading up the way after disappointing runs and Ross County can do that as well.”

“We are getting good crosses into the box but things are not just falling for us. They will as we have the players that will make that happen. If we get a goal it will do a lot for our confidence and hopefully lead to a win.”

The Scottish Cup success has been the only green and white victory for Terry Butcher since he took over in Edinburgh and he will be looking to up his side’s strike rate that has yielded only two goals in his 5 matches in charge.

Rowan Vine and Owain Tudur Jones are available again for Butcher however Alex Harris and Paul Heffernan both remain out through injury.

Butcher said: “Ross County are better than their league position would indicate. They will turn their season around but hopefully that will start next week after we have won at their place.”

“We won there in the Cup and it would be great to repeat that success.”
