Chris Sutton has two special guests lined up for BT Sport’s coverage of the Ross County v Sevco match- Terry Butcher and Ally McCoist.
The BT Sport caravan was in place at Victoria Park at tea-time yesterday with the vultures out in force to pick over every detail of Pedro Caixinha’s side.
Often when there is such a level of anticipation the result can be a let down but if things do go wrong for Caixinha Sutton won’t be slow to state the obvious.
.@btsportfootball Ally McCoist and Terry Butcher join us on Scottish Football Extra at 1400… I can’t wait to see them both????????

Whether McCoist or Butcher are prepared to be as outspoken remains to be seen although last season Butcher was highly critical of Joe Garner who is now scoring regularly for his old club Ipswich.
With Aberdeen eight points clear at the top of the Premiership there is no margin for error after Caixinha presided over a Europa League exit to Progres Niederkorn.
Having spent Â£10m on transfer fees- more than the rest of the SPFL combined- the pressure is on Caixinha to deliver on the pitch.
A win for Ross County would take them two points ahead of Sevco and push the Ibrox side into eighth place after four matches.
Sevco have still to play against any of the top three clubs.
