Match Preview

Dundee United v Partick Thistle – 29th October 2019

There is a quick turnaround for Partick Thistle as they get ready to face Dundee United at Tannadice this evening following a disappointing performance and result at the weekend. Assistant manager Alan Archibald spoke to ptfc.co.uk ahead of making the trip up to Dundee on Tuesday.

“We’re all disappointed about Saturday’s result but there is nothing we can do about it now. We got them back in for a training session on Monday morning to go through how we will set up against Dundee United and the players are all desperate to get on the pitch and put it right. We’ve had a couple of fantastic performances on the road and that makes it even more disappointing because when there are almost 3,000 Thistle fans attending our home games, we want to get wins in front of them and send them home happy.”

The standard of performance dipped below what had been expected on Saturday but the Jags management team know that the squad are fully focused, and capable, of doing what is required to get the three points.

“Regardless of where we are going the standards will need to be raised from what we showed on Saturday. Dundee United are a good side, they have invested really well but we know we have the quality in our team to hurt them. We’ve done well on the road recently and not many teams will go to Inverness or Dens Park and win, so we’re drawing our inspiration from that to make it another away night to remember.”.”

Away games have been enjoyable over the last few weeks with a tangible connection between the playing squad and the support and Archie is looking to create another special night under the floodlights.

“The fans are desperate to get behind us. We’ve seen the connection between the players and the support on the road and that makes it even more frustrating we can’t get the job done at home. We know there will be a good backing on Tuesday night and we’ll be going all out to give them a win which sets us up nicely for Saturday.”

With Joe Cardle, Lewis Mansell and Steven Saunders all missing out at the weekend, Alan is hopeful that some may make a return to playing action at Tannadice.

“Hopefully a couple of them will return into contention. They were in on Sunday training to see how they reacted to it and it has looked encouraging. They are muscle injuries which is frustrating, Joe Cardle was all set to start against Arbroath then picks his injury up on Friday in the last bit of training. He might have played on Saturday but there is always the risk that it gets worse and you don’t want to be missing a player for up to six weeks.”

Match Reaction

Dundee United v Partick Thistle – 29th October 2019

Partick Thistle ended October with a trip to Tannadice to take on Dundee United as the division’s bottom and top sides faced off. The Jags were looking to bounce back from a disappointing performance against Arbroath with a win against United but, unfortunately, it wasn’t to be as Lawrence Shankland’s second half header proved the difference between the two teams. The Jags enjoyed plenty of possession and dominated stretches of the match but failed to turn that into goals as Robbie Neilson’s team ran out narrow winners. Thistle boss, Ian McCall, spoke to ptfc.co.uk after full-time as he reflected on a tightly contested 90 minutes.

“I think if any team deserved to win, it was Partick Thistle. We were on top for large parts of the game, especially in that second half. We had two or three good efforts in the first half and then in the second we had a couple more with Steven Saunders and Shea Gordon both getting on the end of corners where they could have done better.

“I can’t really remember too many shots that United had. Shankland hit the bar not long before the goal but that was from way out. However, he goes on and scores because that’s what he does and it’s why he’s getting paid a lot of money and why he, in my opinion, could play for any team in Scotland.”

Following on from a poor showing against Arbroath at the weekend, Ian was delighted to see plenty of signs of improvement in his side against the title favourites.

“I thought there was great effort from the team. I told them that they needed to show a bit of pride and passion tonight because for the last half an hour on Saturday, we let the fans down and I felt that they responded with plenty of pride and passion and at the end of the game I certainly didn’t think we deserved to lose.”

McCall’s side now prepare for a trip to Somerset park to face Ayr on Saturday and he knows that if Thistle have aspirations to finish in the promotion play-offs, they have to start recording win consistently soon.

“It’s still very early days in terms of the league season. You can see the top four are a wee bit ahead at the moment but it’s not insurmountable if we can go and get two or three wins and a couple of draws in the next five or six matches. We want to be in the middle of the league by January and then we can make some changes but they won’t be wholesale because I believe this team is better than it has showed in certain games and you could see that tonight.”

The Jags had previously won away at Inverness and Dundee and the manager was gutted that they couldn’t keep that run of wins on the road going this evening against the table-topping Tangerines.

“Those were terrific results and I genuinely feel like we deserved to win the game more than United tonight. I hope that the 250 or so fans that travelled to the game saw that extra fight and passion and were proud of the team tonight. Hopefully, they see the potential that this squad has.”
