As Thistle prepare for a tough trip to Tannadice, Jags skipper Sean McGinty knows the side have to raise standards from Saturday’s performance against Abroath at The Energy Check Stadium at Firhill. Speaking to ptfc.co.uk he said
“We were all very disappointed with the way we played on Saturday but that is gone now. We can’t let that affect us heading into a tough match away to Dundee United. We’ve had a good couple of performances and wins on the road in the last month or so and we’ll be hoping to keep that going on Tuesday night. We’ve got to prove that Saturday was a one off and get back to the form that we have showed since the gaffer came in.”
It doesn’t come much tougher than a trip to league leaders but Sean is confident the squad of players can come away with another positive result on the road.
“We’re going up there and most people are expecting them to beat us so we’ve got nothing to lose. Their fans will be expecting a win at home so we’re going to have to go and frustrate them, build our way into the game and take our chances when we get them. We have the quality to go and hurt teams but it all comes down to whether we take our chances when we get them. As a defence we want to go back to being solid and trying to keep a clean sheet.”
The backing from the support has been incredible all season and McGinty knows that the Jags faithful with give full backing to the team once again this evening.
“The fans have been brilliant, I think anyone who went to Inverness or Dundee could see there was a togetherness at the end of the match when we picked up our win. It’s a Tuesday night but I know that the fans will still travel in their numbers so it is up to us to make sure we go and deliver for them. It’s strange that we haven’t won at home in the league yet but have picked up points on the road. We have had good results at home earlier this season, when we beat Ross County, and we know that if we can deliver the same level of performance on Tuesday night then we have a chance of coming back down the road from Tannadice with something to show for our efforts.”
