Match Preview

Hardie set for second bow On-loan midfielder Martin Hardie is set to make his second debut for Partick when they host Falkirk. Hardie has joined from SPL outfit St Johnstone and is likely to go straight into the side with Simon Donnelly also returning to the fold after injury. Ryan MacBeth and David Rowson remain out through injury. Thistle are looking at the positive side of things just six days after being knocked out of the ALBA Challenge Cup at Ross County on penalties. Firhill assistant manager Ian Maxwell said: "Our last two performances have been of a much higher standard. We won at Ross County and then drew 2-2 with them over 120 minutes so we are pleased with our progress. "If we can eliminate silly errors from our play we will start winning more games than we lose." Falkirk have several absentees as they head to Glasgow. Mark Millar is suspended, while the injured duo of winger Jack Compton, who has an ankle knock, and Tam McManus who recently had surgery for a knee problem are also missing. The Bairns are looking for their second away victory of the season and aim to put to an end a run of two away defeats on the trot. And manager Steven Pressley reckons that his side's 1-0 win over Thistle earlier in the season will have no bearing in this game, saying: "It was good to win that night, however this is a fresh game and a fresh challenge. "I will be looking for our boys to reproduce what they did against Cowdenbeath a fortnight ago when they played some great football and scored five goals."

Match Report

Paton punishes Bairns Paul Paton scored the only goal as struggling Partick earned a precious win over Falkirk. Paton grabbed what proved to be the winner with a fantastic volley from 18 yards after 17 minutes. The home side should have had more to show for their dominance with Paul Cairney running the game in the middle of the park but some wayward shooting kept the Bairns in the game. Falkirk should have levelled just before half-time when Carl Finnegan somehow missed from six yards while Carl Finnigan's speculative shot from long range was almost fumbled by keeper Thistle stopper Bryn Halliwell. The referee tried to liven proceedings up by showing the yellow card six times in the second half in what wasn't a particularly a feisty game.
