Recent respective form guides

Inverness Caledonian Thistle's home form is most definitely relegation standard, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. While Caley Thistle have scored 4, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Rangers's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the The Gers, and 6 goals against.

Inverness CT are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 17 points from 20 matches. Rangers sit in a healthy 2nd in the league, and have picked up 43 points from their 20 games.
