Ross County vs. Aberdeen: Three key battles
One of the more intriguing encounters in this weekend’s Scottish Cup action is the visit of Aberdeen to Ross County. Both sides are capable of big performances on their day and this one could steal the show across an already exciting weekend.
Jim McIntyre already has one over on Derek McInnes in Dingwall this season, also inspiring his side to a home win over the Dons last term.
Consistency is often Ross County’s problem but as shown in last season’s Scottish League Cup, they do have the quality and desire to play above themselves and achieve major silverware.
They showed that kind of spirit last weekend too, when they went to Ibrox and picked up a massive point against Mark Warburton’s Rangers.
Aberdeen though are in fine form and have only lost one of their last seven – even that came against the seemingly invincible Celtic.
