Cerny happy with clean sheet

Tomas Cerny had hoped to finish the year with three wins in a row but instead he had to settle for his second clean sheet in a week as Thistle drew 0-0 with Kilmarnock at Firhill.

The goalkeeper helped Thistle to a 2-0 midweek victory over Dundee but it was only a point from the last match before the winter break.

Speaking after the game to he said: “Going into the match we wanted to win the game and get another three points. We are on a good run and thought we could win. We started the match well and had a few chances but the conditions didn’t help us at all and probably suited Kilmarnock.

“They created some chances in the second half so as a goalkeeper you are happy with a clean sheet and you take the point but we are obviously disappointed not to have taken all three.”

Cerny is happy with the clean sheet and the way the recent matches have went.

“It’s good as a defence to get two back to back clean sheets, we hadn’t had one for quite a while so to now have two in a row is good but we need to build on that after the break and continue doing what we are doing.

“We are pleased with the last games and the points we have picked up and the performances we have put in. We have something to build on but we have to continue to play to those standards and pick up results.”

Cerny spent a spell on the sidelines with injury but after coming back has been on fine form and the Thistle number one is feeling good. During the winter break the players have time off before a training camp in La Manga

“Personally I’m feeling good and feel in the last few games, I’m getting back to full sharpness and in that respect I’m wishing the break wasn’t coming up.

“However from a team point of view it’s good for boys with small niggles to recover and gives us a chance to get away and work on things ahead of an important close to the season

“It gives us the chance to put in another preseason and lets you work a little harder and put in some double sessions and just get some quality training time.”

After the break it’s a home Scottish Cup tie with Formartine United and Tomas knows it could be a good game to come back to but only if they do things correctly.

“We come back with the cup match. If we go out and win that then it’s the perfect game to come back to but only if we go out and do things right, do things properly and get through to the next round.”
