Partick Thistle Preview – Can Thistle keep alive what seemed to be improbable title hopes?

For a long time it has looked as though Partick’s hopes of winning the title and automatic promotion were virtually done and it was all about ensuring they achieved a top four finish and entry into the playoffs. Now, however, there is some optimism again that Ian McCall’s men could yet usurp Arbroath and Kilmarnock and clinch first place.

That is down to the fact they returned to winning ways with a 1-0 success at home to Inverness Caley Thistle on Friday. A first win in five league games and seeing them go within nine points of the leaders, but with two games in hand over the two teams currently above them.

1-0 Correct Score
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Thursday 3 March)
Although wins have been hard to come by in recent weeks for Thistle they are not losing many either which has just about kept their title hopes alive. Their only loss in their last nine league games was against an improving Greenock Morton team.
McCall’s men now prepare for four games against teams occupying the bottom four positions in the Championship which presents a chance for them to go on a winning run, at least on paper.

Queen of the South Preview – Will Queens ease their relegation hopes with third straight league win?

Allan Johnston’s sacking last month came the way as no surprise considering the struggles Queen of the South have had. The Doonhamers won just one of the last 16 league games that Johnston was in charge of and were staring down the barrel of relegation to League One. Willie Gibson has been given the manager’s job on an interim basis and continues to combine playing duties with his new responsibilities.

It makes it all the more remarkable that Queens have shown significant improvement in the last couple of weeks – not only to reach the final of the Challenge Cup but improve their hopes of staying in the Championship.

They come into this game on the back of four matches unbeaten in all competitions – winning three of them and drawing with leaders Arbroath. Queens have yet to concede a goal under Gibson which is even more incredible as they hadn’t kept a clean sheet in their previous six. Their current run may be unsustainable but if they can at least maintain their better defensive performances then it does bode well for the remainder of the season.

Scoring goals on their travels has not been as much of an issue in recent times, either, finding the next in each of their last six and scoring 11 times in that run.


Partick Thistle vs Queen of the South Betting Advice

The hosts know they need a win here to give themselves a chance of catching the top two whilst the visitors would love a third straight league win (something they haven’t done in over a year) to boost their hopes further of not finishing bottom and potentially even avoiding the relegation playoff spot.

The teams have shared the spoils in the two meetings already this season, with the points staying at home on both occasions.


Key Facts –  Partick Thistle vs Queen of the South Betting Tip

  • Thistle recorded their first win in five league games with victory over Inverness on Friday
  • Queen of the South have lost just one of their last six games in all competitions
  • The two previous meetings between the clubs this season have went the way of the team playing at home


It could well be another home win with Thistle favourites to take the points but my preference is for this to be a tight games. Thirteen of Partick’s last 15 matches have went under 2.5 goals, with Queens tightening up defensively it could well be another.
