Sports Mole previews this weekend's showdown between Ross County and Celtic.

The Scottish Premiership's bottom club Ross County play host to champions Celtic this weekend hoping to maintain their improved form under Jim McIntyre.

The Staggies drew with Inverness Caledonian Thistle and defeated Dundee in their last two outings, and may even fancy their chances against the Hoops, who have made an indifferent start to the season.

Celtic lost their first home match in almost two years when they went down 1-0 to league leaders Hamilton Academical, and some fans are already calling for manager Ronny Deila to be shown the door.

Ross County did manage to hold Celtic to a 1-1 draw the last time these two teams met, but have lost two out of their last three against Saturday's opposition.

A surprise win for the Staggies could move them level on points with Motherwell and St Mirren above them, while a Celtic victory will move them into the top three if other results go their way.
