Hearts get the game underway here at Tynecastle Park.
Hello and welcome to the ptfc.co.uk live text commentary for Partick Thistle's clash with Hearts at Tynecastle Park.
We have just received the news that kick-off has been delayed so the match will now begin at 15:15.
Both teams return from the international break off the back of defeats in their last league outings. The Jags suffered a 3-0 loss at the hands of Rangers at Ibrox while Hearts were dealt a 2-1 defeat by Kilmarnock at Murrayfield two sundays ago.
Alan Archibald makes just one change to the side who began the match in Govan a fortnight ago. The inelligble Conor Sammon drops out of the starting line-up and the squad with Chris Erskine returning to the squad to take his place having recovered from a calf problem. The bench is made up by Ryan Scully, Kris Doolan, Andy McCarthy, Milan Nitriansky, Kevin Nisbet and Gary Fraser, who will be looking for more action having made his first senior appearance since April of last year, when he came on as a sub against the Gers.
The side's now have 15 extra minutes to prepare with but we'll be with you at 15:15 for kick-off.
