Hearts defence can provide basis for another victory

Jambos can get the better of struggling Ross County

Hearts boss Craig Levein
1 of 1

Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership
Sky Sports Football, 12.30pm Saturday


Hearts can push Ross County deeper into relegation trouble with a win in Dingwall in the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership.

The Tynecastle side's revival under Craig Levein has been remarkable and based on solid defensive foundations, with Christophe Berra a potential player-of-the-year candidate.

County broke a 13-game winless run in style two weeks ago when they romped to a win in Dundee and David Ngog impressed up front.

But all their problems are at the back and when brothers Harry and John Souttar meet up on opposing sides, it could be Hearts' John who enjoys the spoils.

Recommendation
Hearts
1pt 13-10 general
