McMillan delighted to be helping team

Jack McMillan has been “Mr Versatile” since signing on loan in January and the right back come centre half, come centre midfielder is happy to be out helping the team, in any way that he can.

McMillan admits he is happy to turn out wherever the manager asks him to if he helps the team get all three points.

Speaking to exclusively to he said: “I’ve played a number of different positions since I got here and I’m loving it. I’m loving playing regularly and I’ll play wherever I’m needed, I’d play in goals if I was asked!

“The gaffer has spoken to me and said he feels I can play most positions. That gives me a lot of confidence going out there. To have the trust of the manager wherever I’m playing feels good and it gives me that extra lift going out there wherever I’m playing. I just want to help the team. I want to help us keep winning games”

Jack knows the match against Falkirk on Saturday is a big one, but one the players are looking forward to after a good win in the league last weekend which was followed by a performance to be proud of in the cup.

“We’re all looking forward to it. We know it’s a big game, we are both down at the wrong end of the table but it’s a game we are looking forward to.

“After Saturday’s last minute winner and then a good performance against Hearts, we go into the game feeling strong and full of confidence.”

A win would take Thistle above Falkirk in the table and the possibility of 7th if other results go the Maryhill Men’s way, but McMillan knows the Jags have to focus on their job first.

“We know a win will take us above them in the table, but if results go our way we can move even higher. We need to do our business first though, we need to make sure we go out and take all three points.

“We have a lot of positives to take from the game against Hearts, they have a lot of good players and I thought we played well against them. We held our own and could have got a result, we were unlucky in the end but it gives us a lot to take into the game against Falkirk.”

Despite being away from home the Thistle number 31 is hoping to use the noisy travelling support

“We are going to their place and we want to put our game onto them, hopefully we can frustrate their fans and have the noisy support of ours behind us which can make all the difference.

“We know we are entering an important period of the season. The last minute goal last week gives everyone that lift, it gets us all that bit closer together and with the fans too. It’s always a big lift when something like that happens and we need to continue that on Saturday in what is a massive game.”
