As for the home side, they head into the contest on Saturday afternoon without a win in five matches, their latest setback coming at the hands of improving Aberdeen.
With Celtic still playing catch-up after the coronavirus misdemeanour of Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo, Ross County have managed to keep hold of the spot behind in-form Rangers and Hibernian.
However, having gone three matches without success, manager Stuart Kettlewell knows that his side must get back on track if they want to remain a threat at the top end of the division.
Having never finished higher than fifth position in their history, it will be acknowledged that County are currently punching above their weight, but a number of shrewd additions over the summer have helped the club put together a promising start.
Just two points separate Kettlewell's side and seventh-placed Aberdeen, putting pressure on the Staggies to heap further misery on bottom-of-the-table Livingston.
Despite the improvements made over their last three fixtures, the Lions remain behind Motherwell and Kilmarnock on goal difference.
After shutting out Rangers in their previous match, Gary Holt would have been hugely frustrated with conceding two quick-fire goals to Aberdeen in the second half of their fixture last weekend.
Although they remain within two points of eighth place, Holt will recognise that they must take advantage of the opportunity to get out of the relegation zone with back-to-back home fixtures against County and Hamilton Academical on the horizon.
However, long-term improvements may not come until Holt makes firm decisions regarding his squad with 23 different players having been used since the start of the month.

Despite admitting his frustration to how his side conceded two goals against Aberdeen last weekend, Holt is unlikely to change his Livingston backline.
Anthony Stokes is pushing for his first start in attack after his recent arrival.
Meanwhile, Coll Donaldson will hope to be fit for Ross County, despite being withdrawn with a knock last weekend.
Carl Tremarco is in line to make his first start of the season after impressing as a second-half substitute against St Mirren.
Livingston possible starting lineup:
McCrorie; Devlin, Fitzwater, Guthrie, McMillan; Pittman, Bartley, Forrest, Sibbald, Holt; Robinson
Ross County possible starting lineup:
Laidlaw; Randall, Donaldson, Iacovitti, Tremarco; Draper, Vigurs; Gardyne, Charles-Cook, Stewart; McKay
We say: Livingston 1-1 Ross County
Given their respective form, we can only back this contest to end in a low-scoring draw. However, do not be surprised if the home team finally end their run of poor results after a number of encouraging performances.
