Scottish Premiership betting tips: Ross County v Motherwell

Monday night football on Sky Sports comes from the Scottish Premiership with Ross County v Motherwell the first evening match of the new TV deal.

The Dingwall-based hosts finished 10th last year and are widely expected to be involved in the fight against relegation again this term, this despite a squad revamp which has seen many players leave the club since their last match in March.

Motherwell have Europa League football to look forward to later this month following last season’s third-placed finish.

They’ve also freshened up their squad with Jake Hastie back on loan from Rangers, while young Wigan forward Callum Lang is an interesting signing.

He impressed at Shrewsbury on loan last term and an improving player has the potential to add goals in the Premiership.

A significant departure, however, is right-back Richard Tait, who left in acrimonious circumstances. That will weaken a defence which has shipped two to Hamilton in pre-season, as well as four at Rangers and three at home to Kilmarnock.

County have also had defensive issues in their friendlies, conceding twice in games at Celtic, Livingston and Aberdeen. They had the league’s worst defensive record last term, letting in 60 in their 30 games.

Paying great attention to friendlies is rarely good business but the current circumstances make them more important than usual and goals do look likely in the teams’ competitive opener.

Both teams to score is at 4/5 which looks fair enough.

    Ten-man Motherwell pay the penalty as Ross County secure hard-fought victory

    Ross Stewart kept his cool as Ross County opened their Scottish Premiership campaign with a 1-0 victory over 10-man Motherwell in a tale of two penalties.

    Stewart converted from the spot in the 24th minute after the hosts made a bright start, while Liam Donnelly missed the target from 12 yards in the 73rd minute as the visitors failed to make their second-half pressure count.

    Christopher Long and Callum Lang also passed up chances before the latter was sent off on his debut for a cynical challenge.

    County handed debuts to three defenders – summer signings Connor Randall and Alex Iacovitti plus 18-year-old left-back Josh Reid while Motherwell had two new arrivals in their back four – Nathan McGinley and Ricki Lamie.

    Well goalkeeper Trevor Carson made his first competitive appearance since suffering deep vein thrombosis in November 2018, while David Turnbull lined up on the left of Motherwell’s front three in his first start since knee surgery in the summer of 2019. Allan Campbell was a surprise omission.

    An early 20-yard free-kick might have suited Turnbull, who scored 15 goals in 30 league games during the 2018-19 season, but Long took it and fired over.

    Carson came through a couple of early tests, stopping Lee Erwin’s header and touching Stewart’s strike from a tight angle onto the crossbar.

    The Northern Ireland international was given little respite as Motherwell’s new club captain Declan Gallagher conceded the penalty with a risky challenge at a loose ball.

    The defender claimed he won the ball as he dived in on Harry Paton but referee Nick Walsh deemed it a reckless tackle and booked the Scotland player.

    County turned off their low-key crowd noise as Stewart lined up the spot-kick and the striker sent Carson the wrong way.

    Motherwell had a great chance to level immediately when Mark O’Hara played Long through but the striker took an extra touch and then hit the near post.

    The visitors struggled to break County down for the rest of the half and Turnbull was moved to a more familiar midfield role after Lang replaced O’Hara at the break.

    Sherwin Seedorf made an impression when he came on and the winger set up Lang for a free header but the on-loan Wigan forward saw his close-range effort clawed away by Ross Laidlaw.

    The same move set up Motherwell’s penalty as Coll Donaldson was penalised for a tug on substitute Jordan White after Lang headed the ball across the face of goal.

    Liam Donnelly, Motherwell’s joint top goalscorer last season with 11, sent Laidlaw the wrong way but fired his penalty wide of the post.

    White threatened from several crosses and Seedorf had a shot deflected over but Motherwell’s chances ran out when Lang was shown a straight red card in the 87th minute for chopping down Michael Gardyne to halt a counter-attack.
