Match Preview

Raith Rovers v Partick Thistle – 26th September 2021

Partick Thistle look to get back to winning ways this weekend as they travel to Kirkcaldy to take on Raith Rovers in the cinch Championship. The Jags haven’t visited Stark’s Park since 2013 and they’ll be hoping to make it a winning return after consecutive defeats in the last fortnight. Just two points separate the sides heading into the contest with the Maryhill men knowing a win would maintain their top four status. Thistle assistant manager Alan Archibald spoke to ptfc.co.uk ahead of the trip:

“We’ve prepared well this week but it’s going to be another real tough game. They’re a team who are right behind us in the table and showed what they’re all about last season by getting into the play-offs.

“They’re a team who are quite unique in this league with the way they attack. Their full-backs are always on the front foot offering an added threat from the wide areas and they put you under a lot of pressure with that starting from the back.”

Archie took a second to reflect on last Saturday’s loss to Kilmarnock which represented Thistle’s third defeat of the Championship season.

“There were plenty of things to work on from that game. We felt we were on top to start the match but maybe just struggled to create chances. Killie came back into it towards the end of the first half but overall there wasn’t much in it before half-time.

“Coming out for the second half, we didn’t deal with them for whatever reason and they played extremely professionally once they got themselves in front. I think we look at both goals as ones we could have prevented but we now just have to get that out of our system and look to bounce back this week.”

Alan then highlighted the importance of getting more points on the board to ensure that Thistle don’t slip down the table as the teams just behind look to catch up.

“We’ve lost two in a row for the first time this season and you don’t want that to become three because with each loss it becomes harder to get back to winning football. The game against Kilmarnock was probably the most disappointing of the three losses we’ve had and I think we’ve seen this week that the boys are keen to put it right.

“This league is so competitive that one run of results one way or the other can make a massive difference to your league position and that’s the case for us too. We got ourselves up near the top early on but you need to keep winning to maintain that.”

Finally, Archie gave us an update on team news ahead of the game against the Rovers.

“There’s nothing new at the moment. Jake Hastie missed last week’s game after rolling his ankle but we’re not sure whether he’ll make Sunday; we’ll have to wait and see how he is tomorrow. Apart from that it’s as we were last weekend.”

Match Reaction

Raith Rovers v Partick Thistle – 26th September 2021

The management team’s written previews and reactions are presented by The Jags Trust. You can keep up to date with the latest from The Jags Trust by visiting their website, www.jagstrust.com

Partick Thistle’s first competitive trip to Stark’s Park in eight years was an unsuccessful one this afternoon as the Jags fell to a 3-2 defeat against Raith Rovers. A first half goal from Dario Zanatta started the scoring before two second half Kyle Benedictus strikes put John McGlynn’s side firmly in control. Late goals from Brian Graham and Zak Rudden reduced the deficit to one but there wasn’t time for a Jags leveller as the Maryhill men suffered their third consecutive defeat. Thistle boss Ian McCall spoke to ptfc.co.uk following the final whistle:

“That was a really frustrating one because we showed late on that we can be dangerous but it was too little too late. We started the first half well and finished the game strongly but that spell in between cost us. At 1-0 you’re always in with a chance but we end up three down which is a mountain to climb.

“There were a couple of big decisions in terms of penalties that we didn’t get. I know the Thistle fans will have had a great view of them but that happens in football. We allow ourselves to get caught out at the other end and we give ourselves a long way back..”

The Maryhill men found themselves a goal down at the break and McCall was frustrated to be trailing after what he felt was a fairly even opening 45 minutes.

“We started pretty well but didn’t threaten too much which was disappointing. Saying that Kyle does have a shot off the bar which could have put us ahead, Jamie MacDonald has made a great save and Ross Docherty’s shot was just inches past so we did have chances. Raith were looking dangerous when they won the ball and they’ll feel that they might have had a penalty in the first half too but in general from open play we felt solid.

“Even after they went ahead we thought we looked pretty lively and Brian had a decent headed chance which could have made it 1-1 so we felt a bit hard done by to be behind at half-time.”

Today’s game represented the third consecutive away league match where Thistle have conceded three goals and the gaffer was left ruing the way his team conceded the goals today.

“We can pick faults in them from our side but at times you do have to realise that there are two teams on the park and Raith scored a good goal in their eyes with the first. We’ll be disappointed for it, especially as it was a set piece, but it was good movement and a finish from a player we know well. The second one is just quite unlucky with the way the penalty was given but the third one is a bit frustrating.

“As I said earlier, we felt relatively comfortable from open play but we’ve lost again today. We niow go into a busy October with a chance to finish the first quarter of the season on a high and that’s what we’ll be looking to do.”

Further reaction from Thistle manager Ian McCall will be available for JagZone subscribers to watch tonight – log in to view.

We’ll also have extended highlights and a full game replay of today’s match on JagZone tonight.
