Partick Thistle v Inverness CT – 21st November 2015

It’s been a long two weeks since a late goal denied Thistle all three points at Dens Park in the last Ladbrokes Premiership fixture. Alan Archibald spoke to to preview tomorrow’s fixture with Inverness.

“We’ve been in a good spirit over the international break having gotten over the disappointment of dropping two points late on against Dundee. We’re only six points off Inverness so we know we are going into a vital spell and we need to start picking up points. We’ve been on a good run, but we need to turn the results into wins.

“Inverness are a good side, but they are a side we have done well against since we got promoted to the Premiership in 2013. They are a good passing team and try to play football the right way, which makes for entertaining games and we’ll be hoping to extend our good record against them tomorrow.”

Students go free in tomorrow’s game, and Alan is hoping for a larger than normal Thistle crowd to spur the side onto victory.

“The club are working hard to promote the students go free offer, which hopefully will see a larger crowd than normal, and we’ll be working hard to make sure that they go home having seen Thistle win and get them hooked, wanting to come back again in the future.”

Archibald also took a moment to reflect on the historic news that Partick Thistle Football Club is now debt free.

“It is absolutely fantastic news for the football club and allows us to begin planning everything on a more stable long term basis. Players want to come to stable and financially secure clubs and I have no doubt that this news will help us when we are trying to attract people to the club.

“People shouldn’t be expecting us to sign six players in January though and we will be operating on very much the same model as we have done in the past.”

Alan concluded with his team news for tomorrow’s game.

“Tomas Cerny is still out as it stands. Robbie Muirhead and Gary Miller come back into the squad having called off late on against Dundee. Christie Elliott is still a while away from first team football too. Stuart Bannigan is suspended having picked up six yellow cards in the Premiership this season.”
