Match Preview: Partick Thistle vs Queen’s Park

It’s Glasgow derby day as the Spiders make the short trip to Maryhill to take on Kris Doolan’s Partick Thistle side under the floodlights, and in front of the BBC Scotland cameras, at Firhill this evening.


 “Every game is a huge game on this run in and there’s no getting away from that. Of course, first and foremost, we want to bounce back from what has been a couple of very disappointing results. It’s clear in those two matches that we haven’t got to the levels and standards that we are capable of. It’s very important that we put that behind us and focus on tonight’s game, it’ll be a great environment to bounce back in.”

“A Glasgow derby against a tough opponent, under the floodlights and in front of the cameras is the type of game that we are relishing, knowing that there is a lot at stake and there are huge implications involved with just five games remaining.”

“I’ll keep saying this, the important thing from our perspective is focussing on our performance and getting to the levels we have shown ourselves to be capable of. We need to be brave in getting on the ball and expressing ourselves. We have encouraged the players all week and made it clear we are not worried about people making the odd mistake, we are more annoyed when players do not look to get on the ball and look to show their qualities while imposing themselves on the game.”

“The opportunity to play in front of a live TV audience is one that the players should be looking forward to. It’s one I always relished when I was a player, knowing it was a chance to be exposed to a wider audience than normal. The biggest thing for us is not just getting a result, it’s getting a result on the back of a good performance and tonight is an excellent opportunity to do that.”

“As much as there is so much at stake, we continue to look to develop that style of play that we feel will help us for many years to come. We want to be controlling games and be dominating possession but with that needs to be that cutting edge and drive that we have been missing in recent weeks.”

“We will obviously be without Charlie Fox who misses out through suspension but outwith that, we don’t have anything major to contend with. We will be looking to freshen a couple of things up but it’ll be about the group. The team that starts the game will never be the team that finishes the game and those not starting will absolutely need to be ready to step in and play a part if and when they are asked to do so. We know there is a lot of quality in this squad and that will need to be on show if we are to get the result we want against an in-form Partick Thistle team this evening.”
