Archibald banned for Dundee visit
Partick will be without captain Alan Archibald when they host Dundee.
The central defender starts his two-game ban for violent conduct in last Friday night's game with Hamilton.
Archibald's absence could see Willie Kinniburgh return after five months out a following a hip operation.
Manager Jackie McNamara will also be without midfielder Iain Flannigan through a back injury with the Thistle chief looking for his men to bounce back from two late disappointments.
McNamara said: "We have lost our last two games 1-0 in the last minute.
"There has been nothing in the games but we have come away with nothing from either one and that is quite sore. A win over Dundee would be the perfect tonic."
Dundee's only absentee is winger Nicky Riley, who remains absent due to an ankle injury.
The Dark Blues will need to put the disappointment of losing to Kilmarnock in their Scottish Cup replay on Tuesday night behind them to keep their title challenge going.
Manager Barry Smith said: "We were pretty low after going out but the players deserve great credit for competing so well against Kilmarnock so there should be no hangover or anything like that.
"Thistle will also be disappointed after losing their last two games and they will be out to rectify that.
The fact that a win would take them to within four points of us with a game in hand shows you that they will be very dangerous opponents."
Honours even at Firhill
Partick and Dundee dented each other's promotion aspirations in a goalless stalemate.
The visitors, who were dumped out of the Scottish Cup by Kilmarnock in midweek, are still yet to concede a goal in the league in 2012.
The home side's goalkeeper Scott Fox was called into action after 17 minutes, diverting Gavin Rae's right-foot shot wide.
At the other end, Christie Elliot should have done better when well-placed but he tamely headed into keeper Robert Douglas' arms on the hour mark.
Douglas had to be more agile to parry David Rowson's header wide shortly afterwards and he was also equal to substitute Kris Doolan's drive from the edge of the penalty box.
Ryan Conroy could have stolen all three points for Dundee a minute from time, but Fox held onto his free-kick.
