Match Preview

Inverness Caledonian Thistle v Partick Thistle – 28th September 2019

Alan Archibald returned to Firhill earlier this week as part of Ian McCall’s new management team. He spoke to ptfc.co.uk after the first week of training with the Jags squad ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

“It’s been a good week. It’s been really hard to get to know the players because of the game against Celtic on Wednesday. You don’t do a lot in training with the match on Wednesday but it has been good to get settled in and get to know the players.”

We asked Archie what the differences in roles were between being a manager and assistant manager.

“It’s all similar roles. Ian is quite full on and lets you get on with the training. That is down to me and Neil Scally to go and take training on a daily basis. He’s always there overseeing it and having a bit input but he mostly lets you get on with it.

“I’m used to being a coach. I did it when Jackie McNamara and Simon Donnelly were in charge at the club. When you become a manager you get more duties to do outside of training, more to deal with. All that is now something that the gaffer has to deal with, me and Neil just deal with training.”

There has been limited time to get to know the Thistle squad on the pitch but the management team have been working hard to get the team fully prepared for tomorrow’s game.

“It affected the Celtic game more. You don’t know the players at all and the manager doesn’t know them personally. It has given us a couple of days to get to know them on the training pitch. The eleven that started and put so much into the game on Wednesday were off on Thursday but that let us spend more individualised time with the substitutes and get to know them a bit better.

“When you get on the training pitch you can see the players and their traits and Wednesday night certainly helped that. On Wednesday we did a lot of things blind, simply because we only had one training session with the players. Having a couple of extra days has allowed the manager to get focused and set up a plan for tomorrow’s game against Inverness.”

Inverness provide a formidable opposition with John Robertson’s side but the Jags camp have been working hard to make sure the squad is prepared for the game.

“You know what to expect. Their team usually has one or two changes. They are big and physical but they have two wide players who are more than capable of playing. They’ve got Miles Storey up front who offers that bit of pace in an attacking area too. They are strong at home and we need to cut out the individual errors first and foremost. That’s something the manager will be driving home at them.”

Finally, Alan updated us with team news.

“The long term injuries miss out and we’ve had a couple of niggles which will hopefully get the ok from the physiotherapist. Gary Harkins and Craig Slater have been back in training this week, which I think is there first week of training all season so it’s a start of a mini pre-season for those players and they’ve been working very hard on their own after each training session.”

Inverness Caledonian Thistle v Partick Thistle – 28th September 2019

The new Partick Thistle management team of Ian McCall, Alan Archibald and Neil Scally oversaw their first league match since being appointed on Monday as the Jags travelled to Inverness, claiming a vital three points at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium to kickstart their Ladbrokes Championship campaign. The Maryhill men got off to a terrific start as Dario Zanatta put them in front after ten minutes but a Jordan White goal in the 21st minute meant the teams went into the break level. Kenny Miller quickly re-established the away side’s advantage with his seventh goal of the season before Cammy Palmer sealed the triumph late on. Following the game, one third of the new management unit, Neil Scally, spoke to ptfc.co.uk beginning by summarising his feelings on what was an excellent victory for Thistle.

“To be completely honest, I felt Inverness shaded the first half and we rode our luck at times to make it into half-time at 1-1 but in the second half the boys were fantastic. For any team to come up here and get a result is great because they’ve been excellent at home this season. I think the fact we got that goal straight after the restart really boosted us towards the win.”

Joe Cardle and Kenny Miller were substituted relatively early on against Celtic on Wednesday with one eye on this afternoon’s clash and Scally reckons that decision paid off as the pair played key roles in a vital win for the Jags.

“Look, when you go to Celtic Park you’re going to do a lot of running and you have to put a real shift in so when that game is one of three in eight days, you have to manage the minutes. Obviously Kenny and Joe are two of our most creative players and we want to have them on the pitch as much as possible but I think when you see how they played today, we made the right choice in midweek.”

One of the other standouts for the Jags was Dario Zanatta who opened the scoring before going very close to another goal on a couple of occasions in the second half and Neil was very impressed with the Canadian.

“He probably could have had a hat-trick today but in fairness to Dario, his chances were ones which he really created for himself. He was excellent for Alloa last season and you can see from the way he dribbles and drives at defences he’s going to be a very important player for us this season.”

The new management team have only had a handful of training sessions with the squad so Scally was delighted to see the boys playing so well so early in Ian McCall’s second reign as Thistle boss.

“It was great to see for us; the way the guys took on board what we’ve been saying to them. On Wednesday I was struggling to remember everyone’s names and we didn’t feel fully prepared for a challenge like that but now we’re a bit more familiar and we’ve had a bit more time working with them so we now are looking forward to getting a full week of preparation ahead of the Queen of the South game.”

A more in depth video interview with Neil Scally is available to Jagzone subscribers now as well as Thistle players, Stuart Bannigan and Dario Zanatta – log in to view.
