The Hoops will play in front of a home crowd for the first time this year as they look to extend their winning run to three games.

It was a workmanlike performance from Neil Lennon’s side on Wednesday night as they brushed Kilmarnock aside thanks to a 3-1 win. A skilful goal by Odsonne Edouard, a tidy finish from Leigh Griffiths and a bullet header from Christopher Jullien saw the Hoops seal all three points under the floodlights of Rugby Park.

The treble treble winners will have their eyes set on Saturday’s game, especially given they’re facing County. They previously thrashed them 4-1 up in Dingwall back in December, while also battering them 6-0 two months prior.

Highlanders County sit seventh in the table, four points above the relegation playoff spot. Since returning from the winter break, they’ve played out a goalless draw with Hearts and been knocked out of the Scottish Cup by Championship side Ayr United.

Lennon opted for a 3-5-2 on Wednesday, while going for a 4-4-2 diamond last weekend. They were sides which operated differently but both garnered results, so it’ll be interesting to see how he sets his players up on Saturday.

The boss confirmed Jeremie Frimpong would miss this weekend’s match. The youngster was stretchered off against Kilmarnock after a reckless challenge by Alan Power. James Forrest is set to return to the match-day squad and is in line to make his first appearance of 2020.
