SCOTTISH football aficionado Gerry Taylor (@thefurlongpole) shares his verdict on Saturday afternoon's best bet from the Premiership.

Hamilton vs Ross County | Saturday 8th August 2020, 15:00

If you managed to catch Monday night's match at Dingwall between Ross County and Motherwell, you would've noticed one player stand out from the rest – Ross Stewart. Quite correctly,  he won the Man of the Match award.

Yes, granted he was the match-winner on the night, with his 24th minute goal from the spot, but it was Stewart’s all-round work rate up and down the pitch that really caught the eye. No disrespect to the Staggies, but they will do well to hold on to the big attacker if he continues to play so well.

Despite the final scoreline, Hamilton actually played pretty well in the first half last week away to Celtic, but ultimately, they shipped five goals to the champions.

In their 16 home league matches last season, Brian Rice's men were only able to keep three clean sheets. In this fixture last season, the Lanarkshire side conceded twice to Ross in a 2-2 draw.

As you can see from the outright match odds, it's a hard game to call. But there's a fair chance that both teams will score in this too.

Looking at Stewart’s first few seasons in senior football, it is evident that his goals can come along in clusters. If County get amongst the goals in this, you would think he has a fair chance of getting himself on the scoresheet. With the added bonus of being on the penalties, 9/4 (Paddy Power) on the County hitman to score anytime is a decent price, and is the selection.
