Ross County will be looking to move away from the relegation zone when they welcome Hibernian to the Global Energy Stadium on Saturday, with kickoff at 5 pm.
Ross County finished in the top half of the Scottish Premiership last season, but they have fallen far short of that this time around.
Malky Mackay’s men have only won a match in their opening seven, which they will look to address soon.
However, the Staggies are coming into this one following consecutive draws and show enough quality to fight for results no matter what.
Ross Laidlaw kept a clean sheet against St Johnstone during their previous outing and, before that, also shared the points with Aberdeen.
Hibernians are doing well this season, scoring nine goals in their first seven matches. Three of those came in the most recent match against Aberdeen, which Hibernian won 3-1 following two goals by Josh Campbell and one from Martin Boyle.
The victory helped Hibernian climb up to sixth place in the table, and they now have just two points between them and third-placed Hearts.
The Hibees will need to perform better away from home after winning only one of their three away matches so far this season.

Ross County Team News
Ross County will likely field the same back four played in their most recent game, a clean-sheet win when they face St. Mirren this weekend. Jordan White has been leading the line on his own lately for the Staggies, and he is someone that Ross County could rely upon in this contest.
Hibernian Team News
After scoring three goals between them in their last game, Boyle and Campbell will likely continue to be used by their team. However, Mykola Kukharevych is the actual striker for the visitors right now, with three attacking midfielders behind him.
