Ross County v Partick Thistle – 1st March 2014

The Thistle squad head up to the Highland this afternoon as they prepare for tomorrow’s very important fixture against RossCounty. After facing Motherwell and Aberdeen, two teams pushing hard for second place, in our last two games tomorrow’s fixture sees us come against a side in our own half of the league table and as manager Alan Archibald admitted that gives the game a little extra significance.
“There’s a little extra spice to the fixture with it being so tight at our end of the league table. It’s an important game with a lot at stake especially with St Mirren and Kilmarnock playing each other as well; something will have to give their. We’re going into the game though on the back of a good result against Aberdeen and we will be looking for a similar performance tomorrow.”
Alan went on;
“We know we are in for a really difficult game tomorrow. County are in good form at the moment. I saw their derby game with Inverness during the week and despite the scoreline I thought that they did okay. To be honest it was just an excellent performance from Inverness on the night. It’s not that long since we played County but they’ve made some changes in personnel even since then. We’ve done the same and I think you could see the benefit of that last week against Aberdeen. The new boys are really starting to settle in and make a contribution.”
Thistle head north with no new injury worries; said the Thistle manager.
“Isaac Osbourne, Sean Welsh and Aaron Muirhead are our only injured players at present.”
