Ross County look to end all uncertainty about their Premiership future by seeing off Hibs and securing a third season of top flight football at the Global Energy Stadium.

Manager Derek Adams: “We have the tremendous incentive of winning and staying in the Premiership. That makes this a massive game and I am sure we will get tremendous backing for it.”

“Both sides will be confident going into it. We will be confident as our home form has been good in 2014 and Hibs will be boosted by a late goal against Partick Thistle that earned them a win.”

“In a lot of ways this is a cup final and hopefully we will be the ones to get the prize at the end of it with a win.”

Hibs look for a third win of the season at County’s ground and they also aim for the same prize of Premiership safety.

Manager Terry Butcher said: “Ross County are a good side and a side who are also fighting for their lives. They are a strong side at home however we have won twice up there this season and it would be good to complete a hat-trick.”

“We know what is at stake and it is a huge carrot for us to win the game. We are playing some good football just and putting teams under pressure but are not carrying a lot of luck in front of goal.”

“Hopefully we can get a break at County and get the three points.”

Jordon Forster returns from suspension however Michael Nelson sits this one out after being dismissed in the 1-1 draw with Partick Thistle on Saturday.

A fit again James McPake could return with Kevin Thomson a doubt due to a thigh strain.
